“It's nice to have a consistent library of any version of the JDK whenever we need it. I believe that the real advantage to the Oracle Java SE Subscription is that it is regularly kept up to date and it is easy to get notifications of the patch notes between versions and be alerted to any major security issues in older versions. This helps build a business case for why upgrades are worth maintaining in our development system.” – Information technology and services company
