Hi all,

Now that OpenSolaris is dead [1] I was wondering what the status of Java 
is in FreeBSD.

I'm currently using OpenJDK16 from ports. Is OpenJDK free from Oracle 
hands or not? Would it be possible it dissappearing from the ports 
because of licensing/patent issues? If so, what are the open-source
