I like this answer right here on the GitLab forums. Why should someone say they're not vulnerable if their product doesn't use it, or can't even use it due to the language?
It was a topic at my work as well. The amount of panic-inducing reactions from management was abysmal.

"But GitLab is not running on Java, it's Ruby."
"Just contact them and ask for confirmation."
"But it's not Java! The vulnerability is in a Java cl…"
"Are you so omniscient to know that it's unaffected? Get to it, contact me again when you have something official."

I'm slightly speechless. Why should I ask InfluxData whether their Go-written monitoring product uses a Java class? Why should I ask the vendor delivering a Python 3-based software? Why contact someone who wrote something for us in C#? Damn, management can be difficult…
