Is Java technology the next Cobol? Fat chance while former Sun engineers still work and breathe here at Oracle. Here's a Web article at The Register which talks about Java versions 8, 9, and 10 which are in the works.
Here's a quote:
JDK 8 will see the Standard Edition of Java (Java SE), which is built for the desktop, updated to run on the kinds of mobile devices that would currently run Java Mobile Edition (Java ME). Oracle believes multi-core and availability of hundreds of megabytes of memory on chips used in smartphones means Java SE can now run on such phones instead of just the desktop.Hear that Google? Android customers are going to want Java versions 8, 9, and 10. Break out the checkbook. It's licensing time.
