Java fallout from Oracle acquisition intensifies

I was worried about this myself, almost a year ago to the day raised my concerns about Oracle getting control of Java, and the fallout continues. Oracle already had BEA’s JRockit, it’s too bad they had to get Sun’s JVM too.

Apache seems to have withdrawn from most things related to Java today according to our friends at The Register.

On Thursday, the ASF submitted its resignation from JCP’s Java Standard and Enterprise Edition (SE/EE) Executive Committee as a direct consequence of the Java Community Process (JCP) vote to approve Oracle’s roadmap for Java 7 and 8.

The ASF said it’s removing all official representatives from all JSRs and will refuse to renew its JCP membership and EC position.

Java was too important a technology to be put in the hands of Oracle.

Too bad..
