Abstract

Many vendors provide free and paid versions of Java. How do you know which one to choose and for which use case? You probably wouldn’t use the same JDK for Cloud, IoT and more. This session will provide an animated discussion to help you pick which JDK makes sense for your organization. We will have members of the JCP EC, vendors and local companies participating in a lively discussion.
