Java is not out of the woods yet. Granted, SUN made it open source, but
competitors like C# and Python are eating away its market share. Java
became
enormous, class libraries like SWING are overly complex and hard to
learn, 
which makes Java rather unpopular as a programming language. As an
interpreted
language, Java has never been the first choice among geeks, that place
has
always belonged to Perl. There are many OSS great Java projects, like
Eclipse,
but in the likely event that Vista will pick up, Java might have a
serious 
competitor in C#. I would be surprised if Oracle Corp. was prepared to
tie
the destiny of its flagship database with rather insecure fate of Java.
Are Java & Oracle the pick of destiny and the world's greatest band,
remains
to be seen. PL/SQL still stays as the tenacious-P.
