Quote of the Week
“This is about showing that Java is still going to be invested in and that the two biggest players out there are in agreement that it must be evolved rapidly. More than that, that they are on the same page as far as the current roadmap, namely to have what was proposed initially as a single release has now become two quick releases, Java SE 7 and Java SE 8. I think it means that Oracle is very passionate about evolving Java and that they are willing to work with archrivals in good spirit to keep Java relevant and important.”
- Ali Hilwa, IDC analyst on Oracle and IBM’s cooperation on Java
