Oracle has recently changed their license model for Java. This makes the use of Oracle Java unattractive for commercial use. Gluu 3.1.6 (installed using Ubuntu apt) ships with Oracle Java. Is there an easy way to replace that with OpenJDK? Do you have plans to use OpenJDK by default in future versions?

Shibboleth's guidelines are here: [https://wiki.shibboleth.net/confluence/display/IDP30/SystemRequirements](https://wiki.shibboleth.net/confluence/display/IDP30/SystemRequirements) Also note: we don't QA OpenJDK. So if you make that switch, we can't support it. With that said, Gluu actually shipped version 2.4 and previous with OpenJDK. We only switched to Oracle JDK in version 3.x of Gluu because of lack of Shibboleth support. Gluu is also monitoring the situation and will pick a new Java distribution soon. Amazon [Coretto](https://aws.amazon.com/corretto/) might be an option, but it's not available on all the linux distros we support. Version 4.1 of Gluu will address a new version of Java.
