With the new CEO CEO Jonathan Schwartz we expected that Sun might let Java go opensource all out, and the announcement will be made during the JavaOne. Sun did confirmed that they will open up java, but with the help of the Community. But then open source is about it, isn't it?
Sun confirmed at the JavaOne conference in San Francisco Tuesday that it would open the source code to Java, but said it needs the community's help in getting it done to prevent fragmentation of the technology.
"The question is not whether we will open-source Java, the question is how," Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz said during his opening keynote.[ source]
