Today we are excited to announce that support for Oracle Java, Oracle’s widely adopted and proven Java Development Kit, is now included with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure subscriptions at no extra cost. This includes the ability to log bugs, to get regular stability, performance, and security updates, and more for Oracle Java 8, 11, and 12. With Oracle Java you can develop portable, high-performance applications for the widest range of computing platforms possible, including all of the major public cloud services. By making Oracle Java available as part of any Oracle Cloud Infrastructure subscription, we are dramatically reducing the time and cost to develop enterprise and consumer applications.
This is an important announcement as Java is the #1 programming language and #1 developer choice for the cloud. It’s used widely for embedded applications, games, web content, and enterprise software. 12 million developers run Java worldwide and its usability is growing as options for cloud deployment of Java increase.
Oracle Java in Oracle Cloud helps developers write more secure applications, with convenient access to updates and a single vendor for support – for cloud and Oracle Java use – same subscription, no additional cost. We also ensure that you will have signed software from Oracle and the latest stability, performance, and security updates addressing critical vulnerabilities.
All of this is supported on Oracle Linux and on other operating systems you run in your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Virtual Machine or Bare Metal instance. Microsoft Windows? Of course. Ubuntu? Yep. Red Hat Enterprise Linux? Sure!
Easy Peasy Cloud Developer Image
How can you get the Oracle Java bits? They are a breeze to install on Oracle Linux using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure yum repositories. But with the Oracle Cloud Developer Image available in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace, it’s even easier to get started. Simply click to launch the image on an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure compute instance. The Oracle Cloud Developer Image is a Swiss army knife for developers that includes Oracle Java and a whole bunch of other valuable tools to accelerate development of your next project. You can have this image installed and ready to go within minutes.

Technological and legal complexities abound in this age of heightened cybersecurity threats—including a rise in state-sponsored hacking. This “unprecedented challenge” was the topic of conversation between Dorian Daley, Oracle executive vice president and general counsel, and Edward Screven, Oracle’s chief corporate architect. Here are five key takeaways from their conversation:
1. Some good news: Businesses are aware of cybersecurity challenges in a way they were not even just a few years ago, when many considered security, generally, as a priority, but didn’t go much beyond that thought according to Screven. “It’s [become] a front-and-center kind of issue for our customers,” Daley agreed.
2. These same customers would like to make data security “someone else’s problem,” and are right to think that way, Screven added. In this context, that “someone else” is a tech vendor able to design technology that is inherently more secure than what non-tech businesses could design for themselves.
3. Regulations around data privacy are getting more complicated, starting with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, Daley noted. The issues of data privacy and data security constitute slightly different sides to the same problem, she said, adding “what’s happening on the privacy side is really an explosion of regulatory frameworks around the world.”
4. There’s only so much that employees can do—no matter how skilled they may be. Recent research shows that while most companies cite human error as a leading cause of data insecurity, they also keep throwing more people at a problem that can’t really be solved without a level of automation commensurate with the sophistication and volume of attacks. “There is a lack of sufficient awareness about what technology can actually do for customers,” Daley noted.
Fast, “autonomous” or self-applying software patches and updates are a solid way to mitigate or even prevent data loss from cyber hacks. Many of the attacks and subsequent data leaks over the past few years could have been avoided had available software patches been applied in a timely fashion.
AI and machine learning tech can catch far more anomalies, like unauthorized system access, which might indicate a security problem much faster than human experts can, eliminating issues before they get serious.
5. Screven is skeptical that international treaties, if such things could be crafted, would eradicate state-sponsored cyber hacking because much of that activity happens under the covers by contractors that can be disavowed by the states.
Thus, “the same person who’s out stealing your credit card today is out trying to steal plans for [Hellfire] missiles tomorrow,” Screven said.
