"Once again, Sun Microsystems is trying to strike the right balance between controlling its Java software and keeping it popular. And, once again, Sun's proposal isn't exactly being greeted with applause."

"Sun and representatives from major computing companies met today to discuss a Sun proposal that gives others more say in controlling the future of Java, a Sun spokeswoman said. Under the new proposed process, called JCP 2.0, Sun will relinquish some control over Java development, including the determination over when developments can be released to the public, the spokeswoman said.

"The debate highlights the tension between some of the most powerful computing companies as they try to steer Java in the direction each company wants. Companies invited to review the new proposal were Apple, BEA Systems, Compaq, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, Novell, Oracle, Symantec and Wind River, the Sun spokeswoman said."
