Yes, Java Will Be GPL'ed!
By Roman Strobl on XI 13, 2006
As you probably know, Sun is opensourcing Java. There have been some speculations about the license, and indeed it is going to be GPLv2. The first drops of open source java will appear soon, Peter Ahe already announced the opensourcing of javac. Some other pieces will be opensourced initially, some will take longer and will happen during next year. This is great news, especially for the Linux community!
