Frequently Asked Question about Java and Oracle E-Business Suite
Do I need to buy any specific Java SE licenses to use Java with Oracle E-Business Suite?
No. Oracle E-Business Suite has dependency on Java for server-based and end-user client-based components. Therefore, Oracle E-Business Suite customers will continue to have access to Java SE without purchasing Java SE Support licenses.
My Oracle Support Knowledge Document 1557737.1, Support Entitlement for Java SE When Used As Part of Another Oracle Product, documents this in detail, including the following example:
..."Customer is using Oracle Forms or an Oracle Forms based product, such as Oracle E-Business Suite. Customer is entitled to download and use Java SE updates and patches to run the product on the server. In addition, when the product, like Oracle E-Business Suite, uses client-side Java applications (browser-based or standalone), the customer is entitled to download and install Java SE updates and patches on the desktop PCs used to run Oracle E-Business Suite client applications. Incidental use of the same Java-enabled browser to access non-Oracle Java web-based applications is permitted but not supported."
