"Oracle loves open-source projects and technologies – it's
just not crazy about other people running them.
"Now, Oracle has a growing reason to dislike the projects
themselves and it's got everything to do with the two things Oracle
values most: money and control.
"Oracle has said that customers are picking the former Sun
Microsystems' open-source GlassFish Java application server as an
alternative to IBM's WebSphere and Red Hat's JBoss app servers.
This means that those moving to GlassFish are not taking out an
Oracle license for WebLogic, Oracle's flagship application server
that they bought with BEA Systems in 2008 for $8.5bn. Oracle picked
up GlassFish with a grab bag of other software – including
Java – from Sun for $5.6bn."
