Is there an EF policy on what Java 11 should be used?

I'm not the EF, and I'm not a lawyer.

It's a bit long, but worth reading, where the legal stuff is explained, and a huge number of alternatives are listed with pros and cons.

Oracle itself recommends switching to OpenJDK builds (which are available from multiple parties), as long as you need no commercial support. In fact, you can get an Oracle OpenJDK build, which is almost identical with the previous OracleJDK:

The change has been announced long ago, and basically it boils down to: You can use OracleJDK without a license for development, testing, etc. but for commercial deployment you need a license, or you need to use a different JVM build.

PS: Doug, for me the AdoptOpenJDK Windows build generally worked fine, but its certificate store did not work at all, which was a killer for me.
