"The future of Java under Oracle's leadership is one that
includes continued innovation across multiple deployment areas
including servers, desktops and mobile devices. That's the message
delivered by Thomas Kurian, executive vice president, Oracle
Product Development during a JavaOne keynote address detailing the
road ahead for Java.
"New graphics, performance and enhanced programming capabilities
are all on Oracle's roadmap for Java development. Oracle took over
the stewardship of Java as part of its acquisition of Sun which
closed earlier this year.
""We're focused on two very fundamental things with servers and
desktops," Kurian said. "To optimize Java for new application
models that are emerging classes and for new classes of hardware
that we see emerging.""
