Oracle Java 11 released - but not for commercial use

Oracle Java 11 that is a latest major release of the Java is not free for commercial use. We do not know if they have intentionally changed the terms, but now you are not allowed to use the programs for any commercial uses.
Related quote from Oracle terms of service: you may not: use the Programs for any data processing or any commercial, production, or internal business purposes other than developing, testing, prototyping, and demonstrating your Application;

Based on this change the Oracle can call you and charge you for using their Java in your application.
So make sure you download OpenJDK 11 instead. It still has free GPL license.
