Java Licensing for Snow Agents

Question asked by RobC1993 on Jun 12, 2019

Hi All,

 

Hoping some of you have gone through this discussion already. But with Oracle's latest changes it appears to be a bit of a minefield. As I understand it JRE is a prerequisite to the Snow agent on both servers and desktops, and with Oracle's latest licensing changes it means that without paying or updating every 6 months the Java will not receive security updates. 
My question is: how should the Java on desktops and servers for the Snow agent be licensed? Does the Java on all desktops need to be covered by NUP and Servers by Oracle Processor? Or, as the agents are essentially 'robots', can we just license those that access Snow with NUPs as the underlying 'users' of the Java system?
