Oracles Java needs subscription - what now

Mathias26
Hello all,
as of Jan. 2019 JRE is no longer free of charge, one needs to pay for the
updates as subscription. We have many computers (also for students) which
have fiji/imageJ and Java on it. Is there an alternative for Oracles JRE to
keep imageJ running without paying for Java?
Thanks,
Mathias

Yes, there are alternatives from OpenJDK, Azul/Zulu, AdoptOpenJDK, and others for free:

https://openjdk.java.net/
https://www.azul.com/downloads/zulu/
https://adoptopenjdk.net/

A comprehensive review of the options (including continued use of Oracle's JDK8) can be found here:
