OK, it's time to look forward...

Enough of being maudlin, it's time to look forward to being a unified company:
Sun + Oracle = Snorcle ?
Where else would Duke need a snorcle, but in an aquarium visiting a glassfish?
You'll find all the images here.
Thanks to Rich Green for open sourcing Duke.

Jaja, and also for visiting the dolphin of mysql

GlassFish aka "Sparky" always enjoys summer vacation time in Corsica...

Thanks

Hmm... maybe Oracle+Sun= Oracun The killer whale of a company. Since Duke does have the 3 main colors of a killer whale (black&white and blood red). :)

I think everyone should look at this as the potential for a great new future, and not as some death passage into that good night.

I for one am hopeful that Oracle might put some support into JavaME, that Sun has been lacking for a LONG LONG Time... like ever.

Sadly I believe that your past post should have been for JavaME, as Sun has not died but with Oracles support will have a future. But JavaME
has died since every phone maker is inventing their own languages, APIs, and basing them all
on that safe and secure (not) standard c/c++.

JavaME we had a good run, I'm sad to see you
go out this way, alone, abandon, forsaken by
you maker. I will never forget JavaME, you were
a good friend.

Let 's wait for the 27th, and see what LE has to say re. Java technologies, embedded or not

I just received what I take to be the last "Sun" signed paper contract that I'm likely to enter into (for the ARM JRE)...

Filed under "legal", rather than framed for sentimental reasons... B\^>

hah - I read that as 'snoracle'.

Which, really is about what I am expecting from Sun and Oracle, because the collective output and innovation from both companies for the past 5 years has put me to sleep.

At least Sun was trying. I do like Glassfish

I have had a small self-made SNorcle logo over my desk for a few months now, and thanks to the power of logos, people have to read it a few times to notice what it says. :-)

Finally, the moment is coming. JavaFx, JSF and mobile platform are the most important future UI front of Java. I hope Oracle will deliver some real powerful UI development platform for Java.

I've also thought of the combo in terms of the tickers..

orcl + java = jdbc

I like this graphic better than the last one. Time for us all to look forward! :-)

I'm intrigued to know what Oracle are going to be able to tell us on the 27th if the acquisition still hasn't completed, which seems fairly likely at this stage. They certainly won't be allowed to say very much more than they have already, as in theory it could still all fall through.

Sun + Oracle = Oracle

Posted by Jack Hughes on January 26, 2010 at 05:59 PM PST #

People, it's an assignment:-

Oracle := Oracle + Sun

or, for C hackers:-

Oracle += Sun

not an equation! Please distinguish rval's from lval's; otherwise, treating it like a math equation and writing stuff like Sun + Oracle = Oracle will result in absurdities like Sun = 0).

Please.

Posted by C hacker on January 27, 2010 at 04:09 PM PST #

Hope, not is Oracle = (Oracle+Sun,Oracle);
