JavaOne 2009 – Larry Ellison Keynote
Larry Ellison reassured attendees that he and Oracle are behind Java 100%, stating that all of Oracleâ€™s product â€” except its SQL database â€” are based on Java. â€œWe are going to continue to invest and accelerate our investmentâ€ in Java, Ellison declared. In particular, Ellison noted that with the introduction of JavaFX, developers no longer had to fight with Ajax technology, and could put their efforts behind a superior Java-based UI set of APIs and tools. He noted that he was encouraging groups within Sun to implement JavaFX user interfaces on their products, such as OpenOffice. He also plans to implement JavaFX in a variety of Oracle applications over the next several years.
