Oracle Java SE Subscription is used widely across our organization because it provides licensing and support in one single package. Services like Java Management Service, GraalVM Enterprise, regular software updates, bug fixes, performance, and stability support are all compiled into one singular package which is the need of the hour.
  • Java Management Service
  • Cloud computing
  • GraalVM Enterprise
  • More simpler programming language.
Oracle Java SE Subscription is best suited for all medium to large-scale organizations in the technology and AI sector. Usually, companies engage in six monthly upgrades or periodical upgrades which are costly but with an Oracle Java SE subscription, the organization is able to manage its own Java estate without costly upgrades. Thus, saving time and money.

This is the main programming platform that we depend on in web development. It has the most reliable coding tools that make it easy for the user to develop [an] advanced website based on the given project. It has security features that enhance security for any data that runs across all our working platform networks.
  • Creation of powerful websites
  • Provision of security to data
  • I have not experienced any room for improvement.
  • I have not observed any performance failure from this platform.
The platform offers cloud services that can be easily deployed to monitor java products. After programming [the] subscription to cloud hosting services is easy for [the] provision of data storage services and [a] secure environment. Oracle Java SE Subscription provides updates to our platforms at a reduced price saving us a lot of costs. The Oracle customer support team is always ready to give any guidelines 24/7 when reached for help.

As an educational institution, we have thousands of machines that need to be loaded with a variety of different software and systems for our students to be able to achieve the goals set by the university. I am based in a School of Computing and we utilize Java as one of our core programming languages, as such we needed to find a cost-effective way of licensing Java across all of these machines. This is why we chose to use the Java SE subscription as it simplifies the distribution of licenses, is cheaper, and covers cloud functionality which has been significantly useful with the transition to more cloud-based services.
  • Cost effective options for smaller organizations.
  • Great automated security and patching options.
  • Cross-platform support (Desktop, Cloud etc.).
  • Some interesting ML options.
  • Easy to use developer environment.
  • User based subscription could be replaced with an enterprise level option.
  • Core features not always updated as quickly as the free alternative Java SDK.
  • No backup facility.
The Oracle Java SE Subscription is a useful service that can support larger organizations that need to implement quick feature development and need to do so with maximum support with minimal fuss. Performance can vary due to the nature of Javas JVM having to boot upon every start and there can be some compatibility issues with a few third-party systems. Smaller organizations would be better off utilizing Java SDK or OpenJDK as these are free but don't have the benefit of direct support from Oracle. If a larger organization has a long history of using Java and has legacy systems running on older versions of Java, then the extra support needed will more than justify the cost If you are heavily invested in Java and need to support applications running on older versions such as Java 8, or you want to use OracleJDK, then you would want to consider getting the subscription for its support and patches.
Not yet, but I'm interested in Oracle user groups
I am not currently a member of any of these groups however, I would be interested in joining in on these groups as a means to learn more about these groups and the services/software they offer.
During the setup process, Oracle's team was very supportive of working with our team to help introduce the subscription services for both Desktop machines and their cloud-based options. We have contacted them several times since and they have always been able to provide experts who could quickly help us with a large variety of problems. Having 24/7 access to this kind of support has been a significant stress relief for the organization and we are happy to recommend them because of this.

Oracle Java SE is used as our primary programming language for any backend application that needs to be high performance. With its simple syntax, the JVM, and extensive community support Oracle Java SE Subscription speeds up deployment and feature delivery. Though the JVM generally handles memory management, it does provide knobs to adjust garbage collection as needed to further tune the applications to limit GC pauses for low latency applications. In the past few years, the Oracle Java SE Subscription has sped up the iterative development of Oracle Java SE, leading to many modern and welcome language features so that Java does not fall behind.
  • Object oriented programming.
  • Memory management.
  • Concurrent programming.
  • Multi-platform support.
  • Lots of libraries and APIs.
  • Limited manual memory management.
  • Older language that is verbose compared to other modern languages.
Oracle Java SE Subscription is great for any application that needs rapid feature development, but you also need to tune the application for performance requirements. Oracle Java SE is also widely supported by many third-party APIs. Oracle Java SE, particularly the JVM, is not great for serverless development, e.g., AWS Lambda. [With] slow startup times, we lead to startup lag as the JVM has to start up on every cold start. Oracle Java SE is also limited in any development that needs specific memory management.
No
Concise, fast, and thoughtful support.

We use Oracle Java SE Subscription almost exclusively for all our backend services and developments. Being such an important component of our technology stack, the Oracle Java SE Subscription ensures all our Java-based applications are well supported, especially the ones running older versions of Java, by continuously releasing bug fixes and security patches. This really helps us feel secure with our investment in Java technology.
  • Great technical support, especially for the Long-Term-Supported (LTS) versions.
  • Security patches and updates.
  • Cost is still a bit high.
This really depends on how invested you are with Oracle and Java. For startups, it might be difficult to justify the cost, so alternatives such as OpenJDK would be better. If you are heavily invested in Java and need to support applications running on older versions such as Java 8, or you want to use OracleJDK, then you would want to consider getting the subscription for its support, and patches.
No
Really good support with a good turnaround time. The support engineers are well trained and knowledgeable about the technology, and most importantly, very capable of solving our problems.

  • Low Cost.
  • Support is great.
  • Implementation is quite easy.
  • Maintenance of web applications is easy.
  • Updates are stress free.
  • No support for mobile applications.
  • Subscription cost can be reduced.

Also, the support provided by the team is great and the support staff is quite knowledgeable and they are able to resolve the issues within hours only.
Not yet, but I'm interested in Oracle user groups
No, I am not a member of any user groups (Oracle, Java or MySql). But I am definitely interested in joining the Oracle user group since I will be able to gain knowledge and the ability to help others by resolving their queries as well. Also, I will be able to gain the top positions in terms of the latest trends and technical skills.
Oracle Java SE Subscription indeed provides 24*7 access to support. The feedback that I received from the team is that the support team at the Oracle side is quite knowledgeable. Whenever the team has raised an issue then the support team has been able to provide the solution within a few hours only. Also, the community is great as well and the people there are very helpful as well.

Oracle Java SE Subscription is the subscription service used by our organization to be able to implement Java SE applications. These applications are built and deployed using the Java Development Kit via the Java Virtual Machine, and fall under the categories of web-based enterprise applications and desktop applications. Java SE Subscription allows our organization to build Java applications that are cross-platform compatible and follow enterprise application development standards.
  • Cross platform support.
  • Comprehensive platform SDK.
  • Extensive library ecosystem.
  • Support for modern, scalable applications.
  • Easy-to-manage deployment patterns.
  • Backwards compatibility could be better.
  • Core language features are added slowly.
  • Runtime introspection is complicated.
Oracle Java SE Subscription is well-suited for enterprise applications that require high levels of scalability, maintainability and the ability to follow validated design patterns. It provides best-in-industry support for cross-platform development, feature-richness and compatibility between different plugins and application interfaces. Oracle Java SE Subscription tends to be overkill for smaller-scale applications, though.
No
Oracle Java SE Subscription support is comprehensive in terms of documentation, resources provided, and availability of support engineers to help resolve issues. They were able to provide SLAs of 1 day for support tickets rated on critical/production status. Support engineers were willing to get on calls and look at our code and deployments to determine where issues were, and were able to return with viable solutions within very reasonable timeframes.

Oracle Java SE Subscription is being used by my development team who develop Java applications for our client. We have been using it because the performance and interface are really good. Since all the resources are working from different locations it helps them to deliver better results and stay connected. Also, it is quite secure from previous versions.
  • Manage Java SE installations.
  • Monitor other Java platforms.
  • Manage updates.
  • Better support feature.
  • Better patches.
  • Price should be a little less.
It is primarily for Java desktop management. Also, it is suited if you want to control the way Java is installed on managed systems. It is also suited as it helps in inventory management with more security.

Java is our choice of language for most of the enterprise systems that the company builds. We have legacy systems written in Java and even the new ones are being written continuously. This subscription is a complete solution for the support and management of all our Java deployments. It protects our deployments with security updates directly from Oracle. The subscription also allows us to update our Java SE installations from a central management service. It is being used by almost all the engineering departments working with Java SE.
  • Central management of all the Java deployments.
  • Security updates and patching of all Java SE deployments.
  • Updates all the Java SE deployments from a central management service.
  • Get on demand support from Oracle for issues.
  • Gives tools to optimize Java SE performance at development time and monitors performance in production.
  • Due to heavy hardware requirements, the cost may go a bit higher.
  • Cost of subscription is on a higher side.
  • There is room for improvement in GUI builders.
Use Oracle Java SE Subscription when you have multiple Java deployments in your organization and you need centralized management of all the JVMs. If the number of deployments is really high, you are definitely going to love it. You can monitor the performance of your Java runtimes in all the deployments. It can also help you optimize the performance of Java applications during development. I would suggest not to invest in this if you have a manageable number of applications, otherwise, the cost of having this becomes more than the viable benefits.
No
Oracle's support team is extremely efficient in identifying and resolving issues. They are a bunch of talented individuals who would help resolve any Java-related issues quickly. Having a team that supports you 24/7 gives a sense of confidence in using this product. Our operational teams have contacted them for multiple issues and they have always consistently met their SLAs.

Oracle Java SE Subscription is [a] must-have application for our organization as we have to build different applications and software using Oracle platforms. We are using Oracle Java SE Subscriptions to automatically maintain and manage updates and security patches of our all systems for Java and all other Oracle products. It has solved our problems of manually updating the system patches for each user and it helps us to keep our all machines updated as per industry requirements through push updates. We have implemented Java SE Subscription on all the systems of the organizations.
  • Automatic Oracle updates and security patches.
  • Machine learning capability to push updates as per industry requirements.
  • Frequent updates from Oracle to maintain security in-time.
  • No proper enterprise pricing system and we have to get user based subscriptions.
It is a must-have application for information technology firms and developers who have [a] lot of involvement [in] different Oracle solutions for their productions.

[Oracle Java SE Subscription] is being used by the developers and testers of the organization. Developers are using Oracle Java SE Subscription for developing the applications and testers are using it for developing the automation scripts, so that, [they] can be interfaced with any other IDE's.

Oracle Java SE Subscription is a very easily understandable programming language and [users] can start coding /automating the test cases in a very short span of time. Even the beginner can easily learn the [programming] syntax, coding approach, handling errors, troubleshooting issues quickly. The latest Oracle Java SE Subscription version supports methods, which are very useful in handling real-time issues / developing the application as per user requirement. Since Oracle Java SE Subscription is [a] purely Object Oriented programming language, all the features /concepts can be easily implemented.
  • Since, JOracle Java SE Subscription is [a] purely Object Oriented programming language, all the concepts /features (like inheritance, abstraction) can be implemented as per real-world scenarios. Also, the code reusability is very helpful. In Oracle Java SE Subscription, both data and behavior [are] taken care [of].
  • Java Byte code. Since bytecode is a highly optimized set of instructions that [are] executed by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), Bytecode helps in achieving both portability and security.
  • Multithreading. In Oracle Java SE Subscription, we can write Multithreaded programs for running /executing multiple tasks at [the] same time and memory need not be allocated to every running thread.
  • Oracle Java SE Subscription has automatic memory management or garbage collection, which is an application /concept that automatically handles [the] allocation and deallocation of memory.
  • Performance. Though Oracle Java SE Subscription, code can be executed on every operating system, it also makes the performance bit slower than the other programming languages like C and C++.
  • Cost. Java programming language is a bit costly due to its higher processing and memory requirements and higher hardware configuration is required.
  • No backup facility. Oracle Java SE Subscription works on storage and not focuses on data backup.
  • Java UI applications [are] not attractive. Though there are many GUI builders in Oracle Java SE Subscription still they are not suitable for creating complicated UI and there are many inconsistencies.
Oracle Java SE Subscription is best suited in the below-mentioned scenarios:
1. When multiple tasks/threads [need] to be executed simultaneously.
2. Memory needs to be allocated/deallocated to the application/task automatically when memory is a concern /low in systems.

Oracle Java SE Subscription is not suited in the below-mentioned scenarios:
1. Java programming language prerequisites/hardware configurations is [a] bit high and hence costly and it needs to be satisfied in order to execute the complex Java programs.
2. The GUI application developed using Java is not attractive as compared to [the] GUI of other languages and there are inconsistencies.
Not yet, but I'm interested in Oracle user groups
Interested in joining the Oracle / Java /MySQL members community group, so that I can gain more knowledge by interacting with other members and also will be easy to implement new ideas /thoughts when I am working on the projects in my professional career. Also interested in joining some of [the] other groups related to trending technologies like AI, Big Data, Data Cloud to enhance my knowledge on these topics as well.
The support portal is nice and helpful in logging the issues and the support staff at Oracle is very helpful and kind enough in resolving the issues. Staffs are knowledgeable and they try their best in resolving the issues faced by customers in [a] short time. Since support is available 24/7 and support is available from India as well, usually customers will not experience any delay/lag in the response.

We have used Oracle Java SE Subscription to provide assurance for our critical Java SE-based applications. The subscription protects our investment in these products by providing enterprise-level patch management and support, should the need arise. This allows us to confidently pursue internal and external java development opportunities knowing that there is some insurance in our investment.
  • Patch management
  • Enterprise-level support
  • Reasonable pricing model
  • Less added benefit for current-version Java users, as public updates are still available
Oracle Java SE Subscription will be highly beneficial to organizations that rely on critical infrastructure based on older versions of Java SE that are no longer publicly supported. While the pricing model is reasonable, it may not appeal to smaller organizations or scenarios where there is a smaller budget/scope surrounding this topic. There is also less of a benefit if newer versions of Java SE are being utilized or there are opportunities/plans to upgrade to publicly-supported versions.
No
Oracle generally has a high standard for enterprise-level support and this level is extended towards the Java SE Subscription. The support staff is quite knowledgeable and provides us with the confidence and assurance of knowing that access to enterprise support and updates for our Java-based investments are readily available.

Oracle Java SE Subscription is available in all relevant departments in our organization to reduce total costs by offering a one-time subscription instead of renewing it every few months. We only subscribed once, and updates were no longer a problem. Without additional effort, implementation can be kept up to date with new updates locally and in the cloud.This allows Java developers to always receive excellent support from an experienced support team to maximize implementation performance and fix it immediately. It also offers us a wide interface where we have different languages to add codes and create different programs; the system works in a simple way to offer great results.
  • Highly qualified and well experienced support team
  • Shrink total cost
  • Timely support
  • Hassle-free updates
  • Subscription costs need to be reduced
  • Real-time stream analysis needs improvement

Our project has enrolled for Oracle Java SE Subscription in our organization catering for [a] Danish Client. All our Java SE applications are now being effectively and efficiently managed and supported by Java SE Subscription related to installations, timely updates and patches for upgradation. The Java SE subscription is budget friendly as well.
  • Timely updates and patches installation
  • Cost Effective and Budget Friendly
  • No more Additional Resource allocation required for managing Java SE Applications
  • Renewal is needed once subscription expires as it becomes difficult to manage it by our in house team.
  • Limited information shared to us related to security patches being installed
[Oracle Java SE Subscription] has been highly beneficial as no additional trained resources needed to be allocated for managing and handling the Java SE applications. Also it has minimal operational cost. The support team of Java SE Subscriptions are always available 24*7, the applications are always up-to-date due to frequent update and patches.

We use Oracle Java SE Subscription for various purposes including development API Rest Service with Restlet framework, front-end applications with Spring and Spring Boot framework, back-end applications, writing automation test-cases on Selenium, and creating some convenient tools with Java. The Java application is well structured and strictly object-orientation, making it easy to understand, manage, and maintain.
  • Plenty of support built into the tool and IDE like Maven, Ant, Eclipse, IntelliJ.
  • Strong object-orientation language and clear project structure.
  • It offers a huge library and framework support from third parties and the community.
  • It is hard to manage memory.
  • Swing UI module is not good.
  • Need time to initiate VM, so the startup time is a little slow compared to other programs like Bash or Python.
Oracle Java SE Subscription has been the key to the technology applications of our company. Its stability and reliability enable us to build first-class applications that lead us to a fast ROI.

It's indirectly used for Continuous Delivery by TeamCity. Its availability on Windows, Linux and macOS makes it suitable for any CI/CD pipeline agent. It's also used internally for certificates management, malware and product testing systems orchestration. Some of the know how is exchanged with the mobile development team. Was also used for analytics collection.
  • Platform independent (can be used across different teams and OSes).
  • Easy learning curve.
  • Great library support, especially PKCS and ASN.
  • Slower.
  • "Wordy" and very strict when it comes to types.
  • No unsigned built in support.
Java is best suited for cross platform automation scripts.
It's not suited to high performance, and direct hardware access scenarios
No
Mainly for the macOS, where you won't find relevant information easily.

Oracle Java SE has been used in our organization for quite a long time. It is a great software and eases our app building scenario; our users are used to this software and prefer this over other competitors because of its top-of-the-line development environment. It is being used in our organization department for both development and deployment. Overall a very good software and easy to understand.
  • Used for development by our employees because of easy-to-understand UI
  • Deployment is also done using Oracle Java SE
  • Easy-to-understand user interface that is very familiar to our developers, which makes it a fun software to play with
  • Java implies that one needs to use many words, as it's quite similar but the code is drastically huge
  • It is lagging behind and we had to find a tool to create our own graphical user interface
  • When the garbage collector works it makes the apps really slow, which makes it difficult to use
Oracle Java SE can be used in most of the organization, but since 2019, Oracle has made it paid. Small organizations and startups may take a hit by this step. Java is also suitable for Android development and POS systems, which makes it really useful for most of the companies using this software today.

The customer support is quite proactive in solving the issues. Most of the time a support engineer was assigned pretty quickly and average turnaround time is also great. Bugs got solved really quickly. That is what is expected from Oracle. Sometimes it takes some time to get assistance, but most of the time it was quite fast.

Over the years, many solutions programmed in Java have been implemented for its robustness, stability and portability that it offers, but as time passes and new versions are presented and used with new functionalities and improvements, it is necessary to have control over how they are. The Java versions are distributed in the different solutions that are available and that is where Oracle Java SE Subscription comes into action, providing great help in the maintenance of all versions, as well as the state in which they are, providing updates for the old versions, etc.
  • Collect in an inventory all versions of Java that have been used in different applications.
  • Determine the status of old versions of Java and update or apply essential security patches.
  • Oracle Support is the best to be able to solve problems in an agile and safe way.
  • Fast update cycles to make new features available.
  • For older versions of Java it could provide instructions or support to migrate to the version supported by the application that is more recent.
  • The definition of rules by browser between versions of Java used could be suggested among the most common or that increase security.
  • For the developer environment, it would be very useful to have available a list of the functions or procedures that have been outdated or replaced by version.
Oracle Java SE Subscription is recommended for large companies that have been developing with Java for many years and do not have exact knowledge of all the versions they have used during all that time, in addition to not knowing the current status of the updates of these versions of Java.
With Oracle Java SE Subscription they will be able to optimize the use of Java and have a specific overview of how fundamental Java is in their business processes.

Groups of critical security updates, has the benefit of being prevented or informed about the vulnerabilities that could be exploited and how to anticipate or reduce the risk of being the target of an attack.
Groups of best practices or improvements in each version, in which feedback on the experiences of other users can be obtained.
The technical support they provide is highly efficient and of very good quality. Their staff is trained and has the necessary experience to solve or guide in the resolution of problems raised. In addition, being available 24/7 gives a level of confidence in the user who are always willing to help us.
