Oracle and Sun - The Official FAQ
The official FAQ. Is it a good thing? We will see in 5 years :-) Oracle, however, was one of the first vendors putting Java into the DB. I remember the Aurora VM around 2000. The "Raw Iron" idea was cool as well.
So the big question is... What will happen to Glassfish?
Oracle will now have WebLogic, OC4J, and Glassfish.

@Michael "It is not expected that this transaction will impact any existing project, deployment or services engagement."
Then we should start as many projects as possible now :-)
