They have already decided not to invest into a project that was neither famous nor making any money so they will knife Java because they don't like Jboss. All their investing into Glassfish is just a ruse. Fishes are deadly creatures Oracle is planting mindseed oh no they found mfyslkfjlsn...
I'm not telling you to delete any line of code that came from Oracle, but to have special attention on it.

That is only an warning about Oracle.
They are not good intentioned.
Larry Ellison seeks money and power, in a way that it should kill anything that is blocking his path.
This position as one of best open source contributor is what fears me.
We can't be Oracle dependent. All our projects need to get its own shape and walk with it's owns lags.
