Java Licensing

Postby chads » Mon Oct 22, 2018 3:13 pm

With the advent of Oracle no longer providing public updates of Java for business use without a commercial license, what are the impacts of that on use of Zimbra Desktop along with Zimbra Collaboration Server in an enterprise environment? We are currently running Zimbra Collaboration Server 8.7 and Zimbra Desktop 7.3.1. We use Zimbra Desktop across both Windows and Mac for a consistent configuration among all our client workstations, and also require offline access to email. Hence, will the licensing changes with Oracle and Java affect Zimbra Desktop, or is there a plan in place to replace Java? Or will I need to start looking for another email client to deploy to our client workstations? Or is there a roadmap for Zimbra Desktop coming in the near future? I have seen nothing out there suggesting that Zimbra Desktop is working on a update or anything of that sort.

Thanks, and no I had not seen that. Guess that answers that question. Probably looking for a new desktop client perhaps.
