Java

+ - Monetizing Java

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The monetization of Java has begun. Sun released the Java 1.6.0_14 JDK and JRE today which include a cool new garbage collector called G1. There is just one catch. Even though it is included in the distribution, the release notes state "Although G1 is available for use in this release, note that production use of G1 is only permitted where a Java support contract has been purchased".

So the Oracle touch is already taking effect. Will OpenJDK be doomed to a feature-castrated backwater while all the good stuff goes into the new Java SE for Business commercial version?"
