Apache called the Java 7 and 8 vote the EC's last chance to demonstrate it had any intent to defend the JCP as "an open specification process, and demonstrate that the letter and spirit of the law matter." The law in question is the Java Specification Participation Agreement (JSPA) that sets out the rules for the running of the JCP. By failing to protect the JSPA, the ASF said it's concluded the JCP is no longer an open specification process and that the commercial concerns of one company, Oracle, "will continue to seriously interfere with and bias the transparent governance of the ecosystem."
Funny, I mentioned Oracle in class today and my professor told me to stop using that curse word..."
