Java SE/EE Licenses

Do I need to pay Sun anything if I release a commercial application written in Java? This is for both the Standard Edition and the Enterprise Edition and the SDK concern is only the one from Sun and not other free java based compiler. Could you help me regarding this question preferably with documentation to clarify this issue, I read a lot on licensing on sun web site but those licenses only concern the library on the Java platform. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

2.LICENSE TO USE.  Subject to the terms and conditions of

Sun grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited
license without license fees to reproduce and use internally

"without license fees"

Scroll down in the license, there are the supplemental license terms, all containing the relieved words "without license fees".

In short, "no" (you don't have to pay) as objects put so well.

If there were (which there aren't)  license fees involved then there would be *LOTS* of people out there publicly breaching the licensing :-)

If objects doesn't mind: a split.
