Oracle hands out love and handcuffs to Sunware

Hello, Java. So long, Kenai

Write once, run anywhere - again

On Java ME, Kurian promised to tackle the ever-thorny subject of portability of Java applications in the highly fragmented market for handsets and phones. The objectives are for continued improvements in performance at start-up and runtime, power consumption, and multi-touch.

Kurian said during a day of strategy rollout at Oracle's Redwood Shores, California campus that Oracle would bring back the premise of write-once-run-anywhere to Java ME.

Also getting added support is JavaFX - Sun's belated attempt to rival Adobe Systems' Flash and Microsoft's Silverlight. Kurian said Oracle is pushing on five initiatives for the next version of JavaFX, due as a beta before June.

Those initiatives include drag-and-drop assembly, to allow different types of expression, and eliminate the differences between Java, JavaScript, and JavaFX, so Oracle developers can combine JavaFX with JDeveloper's Application Development Framework (ADF).

Asked by The Reg whether Oracle would release JavaFX to the Java Community Process (JCP), the body officially responsible for maintaining Java, Kurian did not answer.

Separately, Oracle has promised to continue hosting Sun's JavaOne and to even expend the conference. JavaOne will be hosted in San Francisco, California, between September 19 and 23, with plans for additional JavaOne shows in Brazil, Russia, India, and China. ®
