Oracle and IBM have unveiled a new collaboration that will allow developers and customers to build and innovate based on existing Java investments and the OpenJDK (Java Development Kit) reference implementation.
According to a joint statement issued by Oracle, the two partners will make the OpenJDK community the primary location to facilitate open-source Java SE (Standard Edition) development. The new collaboration will also center on the Java language, JDK, and Java Runtime Environment.
Both vendors plan to enhance the JCP (Java Community Process) which will continue to be the primary standards body for Java specification work.
