In the keynote at last JavaOne, Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz and Senior Vice President Rich Green.Schwartz told us “the question is not whether Sun will open-source Java at this time, but how it will do it”.
I thought at that time it will take years before Java will be Open Source, but it was wrong!
Now I read things like Sun is open-sourcing Java ME, More info available here.
Open Source Java they have spoke about for years now.
But what will be the benefit? I don’t now?
>Sun Microsystems plans to open source its implementation of the Java ME specification
What will the benefit for me as a developer?
Perhaps it means better Java support on more devices like the Palm and PocketPC platform?
What do you think will be the benefit with open-sourcing Java ME?
