Due to combination of end of the License from Oracle & security issues.

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Waiting for Oracle to do the same with MySQL or at least some of their modules for it..

=============================================================== From: Dee Holtsclaw ------------------------------------------------------ I've been waxing cynical on that issue myself. But, IMHO, this isn't such a bad thing for Java since Sun/Oracle has been rather lackadaisical regarding the security issues. If the OpenJDK wouldn't screw up most of the visual rendering, I'd have adopted it myself long ago.
