jtotheh writes “According to the Register, Oracle is going to make two tiers of Java Virtual Machine — a free one and a premium paid one. ‘Adam Messinger, Oracle vice president of development, told QCon that Oracle plans to offer a “premium” edition of the JDK in addition to the open-source JDK. Both, it seems, will be based on a converged JRockit VM and the Hotspot JVM from Sun Microsystems. The converged JVM will be released under the OpenJDK project. … Messinger didn’t explain how the premium JVM would differ to the free version, but the premium edition will likely see performance tuning and tie-ins to Oracle’s middleware.’”
