“We believe that the JCP is and remains a good organization for ushering the Java standards forward,” Oracle say in reply to Doug Lea and Stephen Colbourne.

Oracle have finally broken their silence on the JCP!

Following Doug Lea’s resignation and his damning statement
that “the JCP is no longer a credible specification and standards
body,” and Stephen Colbourne’s string of blog posts – including an
accusation that Oracle had an ulterior motive for nominating Hologic – Oracle
have finally spoken out on the matter of the
JCP:

“We believe that the JCP is and remains a good organization for
ushering the Java standards forward. We agree with the need of
continually improving the JCP, and will work on that together with
the EC. We also note that the EC contains a diverse set of
companies and individuals, many of which are among Oracle’s most
fierce competitors. We believe that an open, vigorous and sometimes
heated debate between conflicting interests and differing opinions
is a necessary part of hammering out standards that serve the best
interests of Java users, and we are confident that a vast majority
of the EC members agree with us on this.”

The statement concludes with the assertion that Oracle will
indeed be submitting JSRs for Java SE 7 and 8 to the JCP vote but,
pending approval of these submissions, they will work with other
JSR Expert Group members on the finer details of these
specifications.
