Is Oracle going to continue support of the Java environments, or are there plans to move to .NET/C#? If it is moving away from Java, will there be anything in place to support Java programs already in place? Will present Java programs have to be rewritten?

There is no way Larry Ellison would get that cozy with Bill Gates. While C# support will undoubtedly be provided, at the very least through ODBC and probably ADO (or the .NET successor), Oracle will NOT drop Java support. Face it, they have a Java VM inside the DB server, and JDeveloper is now written in Java.

To add to that, at JavaOne, Larry Ellison, said


<blockquote>
This is an open-standard platform. Why should you care? Because you should be able to easily compare products, and you're not controlled by one vendor. I don't like .NET. I like open systems. But that means everyone should be prepared for competition
