Oracle Plans

Oracle Corporation has a number of plans for the future of Java. They plan to merge the HotSpot and JRockit JVMs into one product next year. They also will be supporting languages other than Java in the JVM. These will include Ruby and Python.

There is also talk that the Java SE and Java ME platforms will merge into one. Perhaps that means that mobile apps are becoming common. It is either that or mobile apps are not as important any more.

The JavaOne conference is going to be held in tandem with the OpenWorld conference. You can register and attend events at both conferences. JavaOne will now be held in the September time frame. I guess Oracle has decided what has the precedence. At least they are not ending JavaOne.
