Java Thriving in Oracle's hands

IDC has published a Technology Assessment of Oracle's stewardship of Java titled "The State of Java: Two and a Half Years After the Acquisition." The overall IDC opinion is that Java under Oracle's stewardship is thriving.

Report highlights include:

  • The successful delivery of Java SE 7, which had been stalled at Sun Microsystems
  • Articulation of realistic road maps for Java EE 7 and Java SE 8
  • The healthy growth of the Java ecosystem
  • The decisiveness with which Oracle handled the Apache Harmony dispute
  • Key vendors joining the OpenJDK including IBM, Apple, and SAP
  • More and more programming languages being hosted on the Java Virtual Machine(JVM)
  • Java's role in major computing trends including Mobile, Cloud, Big Data and Social

Comments:

Has it ever crossed your mind, whether an Oracle open source mobile OS would make you a big competitor from rivals? An open-source OS would pull a huge community contribution since I believe java programming is the most widely adopted worldwide both commercially and inhouse but least advertised in terms of apps (some people never know there using a java up until the see the logo on the app's window) :D
