Last week, Sun and Oracle made a big partnership announcement. Part of the announcement contained a reference to Oracle and NetBeans; but no specifics. Oracle is a great supporter of Eclipse, leading 3 projects, so this announcement got my attention. 🙂
“…But as of right now, Oracle is focused on JDeveloper and Eclipse and we have no plans to adopt either NetBeans or any of its technology. Any statements to the contrary by anyone else in the industry are not true.”
It is great to see this clarification.
