  1. “Java's future uncertain under Oracle gripâ€
    <http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9147460/Java_s_future_uncertain_under_Oracle_grip>.

    Unlike MySQL, Java is not quite fully open source. Sun retained veto power
    over the operations of the Java Community Process, and the validation suite
    that an implementation needs to pass to use the “Java†name is NOT open-
    source.

    The harm that Oracle could do to MySQL is limited. But the damage it can do
    to Java if it wants, is huge. As with most proprietary companies, this can
    arise not out of deliberate malevolence, but out of simple neglect. It gets
    too expensive to continue pouring resources into a proprietary product, so
    the company loses interest, and the users get left in the lurch.
