The Oracle Java License has changed for releases starting April 16, 2019. This post updated Jan 2020.
The new Oracle Technology Network License Agreement for Oracle Java SE is substantially different from prior Oracle Java licenses. The new license permits certain uses, such as personal use and development use, at no cost — but other uses authorised under prior Oracle Java licenses may no longer be available. Please review the terms carefully before downloading and using this product. Commercial license and support is available with a low cost Java SE Subscription.

What is the cost of a Java SE Subscription in EURO & GBP?
Desktop pricing is €27 per user per year. A single desktop with five users will require five licenses. Processor pricing for use on Servers is €270.00 per year per two x86 CPU cores. GBP equivalent pricing is £24 & £238 respectively.
