Oracle signs up for 10 more years of Java

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif.--Oracle will extend its license to Sun Microsystems' Java software technology for another 10 years, Sun CEO Scott McNealy and Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said Tuesday.

"You guys are signing up for another 10 years of collaboration and cooperation," McNealy said at an employee meeting at Oracle's headquarters here, praising Oracle for its years of work

The move comes a few months after another long-term Java licensee, IBM, also extended its Java license 10 years.
