Oracle has fired a shot back at Google in the current debate over Google's Dalvik virtual machine. Oracle has been so quite on many fronts over the last few weeks as key things in the Java world have happened, that in some ways it is nice to see them break the silence.

There is also commentary on various open source licenses and what should or should not be expected of Google's implementation. Enjoy the read.
