Please create a version for FileMaker Server which can run without Java.
Oracle is changing their support policies and we'd like to avoid coming into a situation where we need a contract for Java with Oracle.
Here is a longer article in German explaining the changes:
Wird Java jetzt kostenpflichtig? | heise Developer
and some English:
Oracle Java SE Support Roadmap
Oracle Announces New Support Pricing Structure for Java
Can we have some insights from FMI?
AFAIK, the FMPA AND FMS Installer is built on "install4J" which requires Java.

TSGal, RickKalman, anybody?
Thank you, Christian! This is an important issue.
I agree it would be helpful to hear from FileMaker what we will need to expect to pay Oracle starting in January. This seems like a potentially large expense if we have to pay the $25/processor/month charge that is mentioned in the Oracle website. Hopefully, I'm misunderstanding the new Oracle pricing because that expense would require us to increase our pricing.
