IBM joins the OpenJDK community, will help unify open source Java efforts

With that preamble, IBM and Oracle have announced that they will work together on the newly reinvigorated OpenJDK project.

It became clear to us that first Sun and then Oracle were never planning to make the important test and certification tests for Java, the Java SE TCK, available to Apache.

We also expect to see some long needed reforms in the JCP, the Java Community Process, to make it more democratic, transparent, and open.

These are great news for that community.
