Looks like Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz should have waited for his boys to give Google's Android spec the once over before endorsing the thing last week expecting Java to get a "massive endorsement" out of it.
Oh, Java gets a "massive endorsement" all right; it's just not standard off-the-shelf Java.
Android calls for a special Google Java that now has Sun folk nibbling their fingernails and worrying out loud to the press about "write once, run anywhere" Java ME/MIDP fragmenting.
Sun EVP, software Rich Green at a webcast press conference at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco described Sun as "reaching out" to Google to avoid fracturing Java in the name of the "best interests of the developer."
The sweet irony is that this greatest threat to Java since Microsoft should come from Google CEO Eric Schmidt, the guy who originally led Java development at Sun and signed the contract with Microsoft, leading to the Java wars.
