Why is Mission Control bundled with (non Advanced) JDK?

Why is Mission Control bundled with JDK and not the advanced version?

Does it mean I can use it?

Or is it a bait to have people use it and then get threatened into buying Advanced or get sued?

Given rumored Oracle business practices I'm scared to even look in Mission Control's direction!

But then, oooh shinyyyy....

    Java Mission Control is free for use for development and for evaluation purposes. The JDK being short for Java Development Kit, it makes sense to have it in the JDK as a resource for developers. It arrived as part of the convergence between JRockit and HotSpot, where it was located in the same spot, although named slightly differently (jrmc vs jmc).

    *Note that you do need a license for production use.
