Java is a software, that has open source Java Runtime Environment (JRE) as well as vendor owned environments. While you do need enterprise grade support for areas like defects, you should not have to pay for security patch upgrades if you adopt open source. Vendors that have traditionally opened sourced their runtimes for usage have now begun monetizing it.
OpenJDK (Open Java Development Kit) is a free and open source implementation of the Java programming language. IBM Runtimes for Business offers a viable alternative for organizations to rationalize their Java costs while also offering enhanced performance and support.
IBM Runtimes for business provides you with more flexible terms for support coverage and saves you significant unnecessary licensing costs with a significantly lower TCO
