"Talking exclusively to eWEEK, Java creator James Gosling opens
up on a series of issues he declined to make public before he quit
"When James Gosling led the team that developed the Java
language and platform, Sun Microsystems was riding high and Java
stood as a landscape-changing, revolutionary technology. Financial
realities eventually brought Sun to its knees and Oracle entered as
a potential saviour, saying all the right things, but behind the
scenes, as far as Gosling was concerned, doing all the wrong
"Gosling created Java, a feat that many would assume would
demand some modicum of respect but, instead, he says all he got
from Oracle was the opposite. In an exclusive interview with eWEEK,
Gosling came clean about why he left Oracle and what he thinks of
the company's stewardship of his creation going forward."
