[Dock-fans] ChemAxon and Oracle

Dear all,

We were just advised of this by ChemAxon:

https://chemaxon.com/news/chemaxons-statement-on-oracle-charging-for-java-updates

The ligand generation pipeline uses some ChemAxon tools (jchem: 
molconvert and cxcalc) and presumably these, in the future, could be 
built on non-free versions of Java. Of course, one might be okay with 
using unsupported Java versions (we're getting by seemingly fine with 
jchem 17.27.0, built on Java 7 at present) but perhaps is there scope 
for using different software for protomer generation? Or do you 
anticipate no problems?

Cheers guys,
