The real problem is with users that depend on old versions of Java. This
happens : sometime, you simply can't change it on embedded devices, or
on production.

However, witha  2 years old EOL, I think the risk is very limited, and
is balanced by the fact the JVM is not anymore publicaly supported for
now 2 years.

Thanks Oracle for that :/

Studio is very different : it works on a client computer, which is
frequently updated anyway.
