Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Java SE Subscription

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
  • Assurance of business continuity for relevant critical applications
  • Enterprise support for older/end-of-life products
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.

Yes

Would you buy Oracle Java SE Subscription again?

Yes

Oracle Java SE Subscription has streamlined our patch management process by assisting with updates for disparate Java environments within our application infrastructure. Previously, such updates were ad-hoc, so monitoring for new updates, testing, and implementation took up a significant amount of time and resources.
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.
