Opening Slides from Oracle vs Google

The opening slides from Oracle

The opening slides from Google

It will be interesting to see how all this will come out, since it involves whether the API it self is copyrighted, not the implementation but the API signature itself, it the implmentation is the same then all the "worse" in Oracle's eyes.

Dr Dobbs has an interesting article @ http://www.drdobbs.com/jvm/232901227?itc=edit_stub talking about how all this has an impact on all programming languages and even OS's. Like JRuby is an implementation of Ruby and not forgetting the python implementations (CPython, Jython, IronPython).

Let's hope all this comes out in Google's favour though, i think it would be a major step backwards if no one can come up with a better implementation or an alternative implementation of the APIs.
