Thanks for your kind reply.
Yes I'm aware that sooner or later we have to move to OpenJDK.
But we have some dependency on com.sun.* in some old libraries and it's
kind of hard to change/upgrade those right now. So can't move to OpenJDK
because of these. :(
It's better for us if we can continue using OracleJDK8 without
updates/support (i.e. without buying subscription) while we adapt to
OpenJDK step by step.
