"The Register is reporting today that the Apache
Software Foundation seems to have lost its bid to have the Java
Community Process (JCP) vote down the roadmaps for Java 7 and 8,
thus creating a situation where, based on earlier statements from
the ASF, may see the open source organization walking out from the
Java governing board.
"According to the UK-based tech site, only Apache and Google
voted "no" on the roadmaps among the 16 representative members of
the JCP that typically put their stamp of approval on all of the
new updates of Java since Sun Microsystems open sourced Java."
