Submission + - Java 7 and 8 Approved - Apache Set to Fork? (devx.com)

darthcamaro writes: The Executive committed of the Java Community Process has approved the technical specifications for Java 7 and Java 8. Not all members voted for the specs, among the most vocal opponents was the Apache Software Foundation that may now soon be leaving the JCP.

"The way we look at it now, Oracle is preventing us from demonstrating the compatibility of Apache Harmony," Geirr Magnusson said. "Oracle is now ensuring that we can’t prove compatibility, although it our sincere intention and desire to do so."
