Any opinions from java land?

Will Oracle Wake Up & Smell the Java?

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 I have been preaching that Java is a huge, gaping security hole just waiting to be opened for the last 5 years. Just because Oracle now owns it, or the DHS decided to publicly post their agreement with me, hasn't really changed anything. Unfortunately, until the Financial and Medical industries both decide to move off of it, people trying to get their work done still need the plug-in tied into their browsers. I just had a conversation two weeks ago with Charles Schwab on behalf of a client. I've never heard such out and out plain-faced lying BS, I hope they are not indicative of the financial industry as a whole and their particular stage of denial.....

=============================================================== From: Billy ------------------------------------------------------ I'm not happy with the oracle management of java. From pen and paper the java road map is great. They just need to execute it better. From a security perspective, anything that's required to run in a sandbox in order to provide most of it's security is by design a flawed security model. A sandbox should augment the security, not be the security. Sent from my iPhone
