Not sure how this will end but the lawyers are bound to do well out of it...

Patent's on abstract things like software are retarded, thankfully Europe and NZ hasn't followed the US down that stupid path.

Not sure what Oracle are trying to prove here - I thought Java was free to use for everyone.  They certainly have been using it for years in their products prior to purchasing Sun.

Oracle bought Sun....and Oracle do nothing for free. People have been predicting a rocky road ahead for Java once oracle came into the picture.

Sun should have Open Sourced it.

Java is free to use, but the virtual machine and compiler have always been closed source, as far as I know.

There is plenty of prior art for JIT compilers the whole thing is lawyers abusing a broken patent system to make money and help large owners of patent portfolio's stifle and extract money from competitors.
