The long [ongoing] partnership with Oracle Java SE Subscription provides an endless thread of useful information for our projects. Half developers in the teamwork with Java, [so] we always need to get the latest Java version to create modern products. Although we also support old products, based on old Java JDK like 1.8. Every Java version should be tailored exactly for a certain project.

We use Oracle Java 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.

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 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.

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.

For our professional customers, where reliability is a top priority, the small fee of oracle subscription much more valuable than the many free platforms available for the returned value. We use it for many deployments, mostly for high-value solutions, where every small detail matters. We use it for on-premise servers and a few cloud instances too.

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.

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.

Our company uses Oracle Java SE as one of our main application development platforms and the SE Subscription service allows our IT department to easily maintain the version and security patching of the Oracle Java SE versions installed on servers and individual workstations. We like using the subscription model so we can make this an OpEx expense as well and only pay for however much Java SE we are using. Our developers like using Oracle Java SE to develop code as well because it is secure and robust.

Java is used as a backend programming language for one of the bots. Also, it enables us to run other tools and scripts on the target machine to achieve automation. The scripts are written in Java language using Selenium and Sikuli which require Java to be installed on the target machine to work.
