Lots of news-worthy stuff happening this week. A quick round-up:

  • Interview with Thomas Kurian, EVP of Product Development at Oracle (including the Java platform): “For Oracle, Every Revolution is an Evolution”.
  • The JRockit JVM license has been updated – JRockit is now free (gratis) for development and internal production use on general purpose computers. See the full text for all details.
  • Oracle introduces new Java Specification Requests to evolve Java Community Process (JCP.next JSR 1) towards more transparency and open participation.
  • Nokia’s updates to the Qt strategy are causing a lot of confusion among developers.
  • An interesting piece on Google’s latest cloud strategy push – just as on of its key cloud services goes down for 48 hours.
  • Facebook is committing one PR blunder after another. First, multiple issues with obscure privacy settings, opaque  terms-of-use, and questionable services – and now this.
  • Finally, if you’re interested in the SmartCard/Java Card space, check out the SIMAGINE awards – a total of of €55000 is up for grabs for the coolest SmardCard applications.
