We have a large product with close to 100 applications that are running on Java (JEE). We are using Java SE Subscription to get our questions and queries answered about a feature or a flag. And to get support with regards to various dumps or crashes that we see. It is good to have access to a ready knowledge base and get quick feedback on problems we are seeing.

Oracle Java SE Subscription has changed the way that our organization does programming since it connects to multiple Java Applications. This is basically a subscription service on a monthly basis at a very low cost that allows building of multiple applications as well in Java language, hence why it is widely used by our organization. The implementation is quite easy and is more convenient as compared to Java SE Advanced Version.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
