In my environment, we have a situation where we have the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Java constantly being updated by a program called Ninite. We somehow missed the news that Oracle was moving to a paid licensing architecture and now all of the Java files that we have saved are 2MB large and only say that we need to purchase a license.
My question is, if we buy a license for a particular version of Java, what version is recommended for Eclipse 2019-03?
I am also wondering if any of the Open JDK/JRE's would be a good alternative to use as well.

Generally Java 8 works the best for most/all versions of Eclipse, including older ones. But if you want to use newer language/library features for Java development and need a newer version of Java for that purpose then newer versions should work with 2019-03 as well. I still mostly use Java 8 for all my IDEs. Probably open versions will work too, but that's not so well tested...
