Which Oracle Licenses Do Include The Right To Make Use Of Java?

Most end-users do not realize that, in case they obtain an Oracle license, they actually obtain the right to make use of a bundle or suite of products and/or components instead of one specific software program.

Almost any Oracle license grants an end-user the right to deploy and make use of a number of different technical functionalities/ features/ components/ products which are included in the obtained software license. These functionalities/ features/ components/products may or may not come with either “Full Use“or “Restricted Use” rights.

The below section provides an overview of the different Oracle licenses that do have the (Full Use or Restricted Use) rights granted to make use of one or more Java software programs:

  1. WebLogic Server Standard Edition includes the right to make use of Java Standard Edition. This means that if you purchased a WebLogic Server Standard Edition, you are entitled to make use of Java SE, including its components: The Java Development Kit (JDK), including the JavaFX Software Development Kit (SDK), Java Runtime Environment (JRE), (Server and regular packages), JavaFX Runtime and JRockit JDK
  2. WebLogic Server Enterprise Edition includes the right to make use of Java SE Advanced (restricted however for WebLogic Server. Java SE is included for client applications that access WebLogic Server). Java SE Advanced consists of Java SE and JRockit Mission Control, plus restricted use licenses of WebLogic Server Standard Edition and Coherence Standard Edition One.
  3. WebLogic Suite includes the right to make use of Java SE Suite (restricted for WebLogic Server, Oracle Containers for J2EE and Coherence. Java SE is included for client applications that access these server components). Java SE Suite consists of Java SE Advanced and JRockit Real Time. Additional to these components, Java SE Suite comes with the same restricted use licenses as Java SE Advanced and the same limitations (meaning restricted use licenses of WebLogic Server Standard Edition and Coherence Standard Edition One).
  4. Internet Application Server Enterprise Edition includes the right to make use of Java Standard Edition. This means that if you purchased an Internet Application Server Enterprise Edition license, you are entitled to make use of Java SE, including its components: The Java Development Kit (JDK), including the JavaFX Software Development Kit (SDK), Java Runtime Environment (JRE), (Server and regular packages), JavaFX Runtime and JRockit JDK.
