The ASF Resigns From the JCP Executive Committee

I think this is very bad news for Java supporters and users. Making the JCP process open, and making possible for multiple open-source implementations of the JVM/ JDK was the best guarantee of future for Java users and developers.

I regret this very much and hope that this will not impact hardly the future of excellent stuff provided by the Apache Software foundation - tomcat, Java DB, Velocity, Pivot, Log4J etc etc

For ope-source, community driven development, this type of news give them reason to stay away from the Java world...
