Yes, there is no reason to keep block the Harmony become JavaSE.. to keep the community under Java umbrella, we need to make it.. but i can see Java will move from product become standard.. the RI is ok.... but i love the new body.. :) will JSR 358 make this happen.

I blog this, because shocked with Oracle's Corporate Fair new "program" in our area, Asia Pasific, and feel that our 12 years work is like never seen. Strange what Oracle doing in headquarter, and why all the Sun report from pre-acquzition never come to his office.. I am glad somone can send this blog to him.
