Which AUR tool is that? You should report it there.

On a Dutch technical site there is a message by a user, that states that paid commercial features are locked by default and have to be explicitly unlocked, e.g. by issuing -XX:+UnlockCommercialFeatures. This has been since 1.7.0_04-b20. Source: ("New flag to unlock Commercial Features").

That's extremely obscure. It seems to convey that JDK is free as long as it's not distributed to customers and/or it's "general purpose computing" ("desktops, notebooks, smartphones and tablets"), but not "specialized embedded computers used in intelligent systems" ("mobile phones, hand-held devices, networking switches and Blu-Ray players"). So already very confusing.

Then the explanation goes on and says the "general purpose computing" devices are at fault, because they use the paid sub-features... Wtf? You just said that's when they're free?

Then there's the bolded "anonymous" clarification that seems to imply what I got out of it, that "The moment you, as an organisation, are delivering something where Java is distributed to end users [...] that is not general-purpose any more".

They offer those "commercial features" automatically through JDK, because they _are_ free up until you start selling products that includes them to customers. Which is the only way they'll know anyway.

Some discussion:

I marked this package as "out-of-date" because it probably includes paid Oracle software:

Java Mission Control is included by default.

Full list of paid Oracle packages:
- Java Flight Recorder
- Java Mission Control
- Java Advanced Management Console
- MSI Enterprise JRE Installer
- JRockit Flight Recorder
- JRockit Mission Control Console observability
- JRockit Mission Control Memory Leak Detector observability
- JRE Usage Tracking
- JRockit Real Time, Deterministic GC

I am getting a series of "warning: could not get file information for usr/lib/jvm/java-8-jdk/..." where the ... are dozens of files in both bin and jre. Install appears to be working. Anyone else getting this?
