Java "Charging that Oracle has willfully disregarded the licensing terms for its own Java technology, the Apache Software Foundation has called upon other members of the Java Community Process (JCP) to vote against the next proposed version of the language, should Oracle continue to impose restrictions on open-source Java use. The nonprofit organization has also indicated that it could end its involvement in the JCP if the licensing restrictions stay in place."

is that it makes me wanna puke.

What does "Should Java 7 get voted down [...]" mean anyway?

EDIT: forgot to say that given the amount of JEE software under the Apache umbrella, I think it would not be a good thing for Oracle to lose the ASF participation... or would it?
