Howdy, folks, have been using Openfire and Spark at work for eleven years now, and it’s been a great inter-office chat system. Had an issue with archiving messages for a while but that got figured out years ago.
just wondering what version of Java is used in OpenFire server these days. Since Oracle changed their licensing method, is theirs the one still being used, or is it OpenJDK’s?
On a side note, not really an OpenFire issue, curious if anyone knows definitively whether an end user company can still use the Oracle jre binaries without having to purchase a license. Am thinking along the lines of a thermal printer where the website uses a Java plug-in that the workstation would need to have installed, say to print a UPS shipping label.
(We print such labels, and from the way I read Oracle’s license we would need such a support plan with them. Have kept a Win7 box on a older version just so all the offices can print. Really want to get away from that!)
Any insights on what java OF is using under the hood, and also the general licensing question, would be most welcome. Thanks!
