Didn't Oracle claim to own some of the code used by Linux, and threaten to sue anyone using Linux for using "their" code? These guys don't seem to know much about anything.


Why not go to their site where there's a contact number, and tell them yourself. I'm sure they will be grateful for your expertise and assistance.

I could get away with using "their" code because nobody in their right mind would prosecute a 15 year-old for something he didn't know about.

EDIT: I was kidding about using Oracle's code (seriously who wants to steal Oracle's code). I am one who respects copyright and licenses.

On the linked web page I find:
Quote:
JRE Expiration Date
The expiration date for JRE 7u21 is 07/18/2013
.

Why is this? Does this mean: this patch is a beta release --soon to be replaced by a stable build? Or, is Oracle really referring to the SDK rather than the JRE?

"It's the date by which Java will consider itself out of date"

You probably didn't realize that java could do that, right?

Thanks, jpeps

You are correct, I did not realize that a so called expiration date was set in each release. I may be wrong here, but I am thinking that this is policy that Oracle implemented and not Sun. My take is that it is really more useful to the developer/maintainer than Joe Consumer (pun intended) because it will likely fit with the (Oracle) schedule of maintenance releases... and besides, Java is configured to check for updates monthly anyway.
