    Phoronix: Java EE Is Now Available Via GitHub

    Following word last month Oracle was looking to move Java EE off to a new (more open) steward, today developers have noticed Java EE in its entirety is available via GitHub...

      That would be Oracle Database.

      Nonetheless it seems unwise for them to take their hands off, especially after spending so much money forcing people to use OpenJDK.

        In one breath cursing Google and another opening up Java EE?

        fun main() {

        if (extortion == possible) {
        Java = closed }
        else if (Google brings the smackdown) {
        Java = open}

        // what am I missing

          pretty clever to use kotlin for your pseudo-code in such a context, hats off

          a curly bracket, closing the main function

            I've not seen much people paying Oracle to use Java or Java programs.

              Oracle is like the kid who bullied someone else (Sun) into giving him this new sports ball, but doesn't like to let anyone play with it unless they pay him to do so. That, or he keeps making up rules as he goes along and ruins the game. Then, he realizes he's killing everyone's interest in playing with the ball, and begrudgingly backs off as he just lets go of it.

                Oracle Recipe for Open Sourcing:

                1. Buy technology, never invent.
                2. Buy it for a LOT of money, even if it comes with expensive baggage.
                3. Make your partners as miserable as possible by changing the technology.
                4. Make your customers as miserable as possible.
                5. Wait for the technology to be obsolete.
                6. Open Source the technology.
                7. Repeat, start at #1

                  Fwiw, JavaEE is the least closed part of the Java ecosystem. Because it's a specification. What we have here is Oracle's implementation that's being hosted on GitHub.

                    http://java.net redirects to http://www.oracle.com/splash/java.ne...nce/index.html that invites people to visit https://javaee.github.io/ instead.

                    So they expect GitHub surviving themselves paying java.net domain.
