Hi all,

Today read in the main page of Sun that it's bought by Oracle. They writing that Sun had financial difficulties. Transaction is valued about $7.4 billion.
More here.

From my experience I know that Oracle doesn't holds any official standards in his products. As example OC4J container. Thus the question is what's going to be with Java (in general)??
