Click here if you are using the Java SE technology in systems or solutions that provide dedicated functionality.
Field of Use Notice
For the avoidance of doubt, this notice is aligned with the Java SE technology licensing terms established by Sun Microsystems/Oracle. Please refer to Section 1 "Definitions" in the Oracle Binary Code License for Java SE and the Java SE Embedded FAQ for details.
The Excelsior JET Runtime is licensed for use exclusively in General Purpose Desktop Computers and Servers, defined as computers, including desktop, laptop and tablet computers, or servers, used for general computing functions under end user control (such as but not specifically limited to email, general purpose Internet browsing, and office suite productivity tools).
The Excelsior JET Embedded Runtime may be used in systems and solutions that provide dedicated functionality (other than as mentioned above) or designed for use in embedded or function-specific software applications.
Excelsior JET is priced per developer seat. There are no runtime fees as long as you are not targeting embedded systems.
Windows and Linux versions are separate products. Cross-compilation is not supported. A discount applies if you buy a Windows+Linux bundle.
Excelsior JET comes in three editions: Standard, Professional, and Enterprise, compared in the Feature Matrix.
All purchases include one year of support and upgrades. You may choose a Basic, Standard, or Premium support contract. Upon expiration, you may renew your support contract for another year.
Support contract renewals commence from the expiration of the previous support period, regardless of when the renewal is purchased. If you miss the renewal date by more than one year, you may still upgrade to the latest version at a discount.

We offer deep discounts to microISVs, early-stage startups, and independent professionals through the Microbusiness Licensing Program.
