Oracle in Charge

I needed to compile an applet I wrote a year or two ago. However I have this new laptop at home. No problem. I decided to download and install the latest Java Development Kit from Sun. Ooops. They are not Sun Microsystems any more. Oracle bought them out.

It was clearly evident from the new install program. The JDK install prominently displayed Oracle Corporation on the screen. They are the new master now. It remains to be seen whether this is a good thing or not. I do know one fact. Oracle is not going anywhere in the near future. They got profits from their databases and other offerings.

Maybe Oracle can take Java to the next level.
