Back in September of last year, Oracle announced that it was working on merging its Java HotSpot Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and JRockit JVM. The plan was to take the best features of each implementation and combine them into a single JVM that would take the market by storm. Such a move not only required work in the realm of engineering, but also licensing. In a recent blog post by JRockit's program manager Henrik Stahl, he revealed that the work is finally complete, and the license under which the Oracle (Sun) JDK and JRockit are distributed has been updated. The new license is based on Sun's old Binary Code License that was tied to many Java downloads throughout the years, although it comes with some modifications of its own.
