There are many guides out there.
Nearly every Linux server supports java if you install it.
I am personally a fan of Debian, many others like Ubuntu, which is like Debian (it's forked from it), or CentOS which is forked from RedHat.

Doing a quick google server for "linux minecraft server guide" brings up many things.
This one from minecraftforum looks decent for beginners, it could be out dated though.
You may want to check out some youtube videos.

Debian is a distrobution of Linux that by default only comes with free and open-source software.

All SPLA licenses have a cost, whether you license them through OVH or a third party.

In general you can't have Hyper-V run Java in the way you want. Installing a Windows or Linux virtual in it can, but you still would need a Windows license for the Windows VM.

The only way to really legally run java without paying extra is with a Linux Distro. There is a learning curve if you're not familiar with it or command line.

What java app are you trying to run?

What would that Debian vMs?

Would you show me where I caught the SPLA license?

And it's how to make it work in java Hyper-V without having to pay?

Windows Hyper-V Server is only for running virtual machines off of.
It does not have a shell that, by default, supports running typical Windows apps.
(There are some hacks you can do to add shells, but most are for managing the virtual machines with a gui)

If you need Windows you need to pay or supply a Windows SPLA to install Windows on bare metal.
(Technically you can install a virtualization product (Hyper-V, Proxmox, VMWare, Xen) and handle the license yourself)

Most linux distros support Java (Oracle/Sun or OpenJDK).
I use Java all the time on my Debian vMs.
