Much as I admire James, I have to say that the responses from  
enterprise developers of which he presumably speaks were carefully  
choreographed by the organizers of JavaONE (who are of course Sun  
employees).  Its the old story...you can't ask a question without  
influencing the answer.  When Sun asks they often hear what they want  
to hear.  When Tim O'Reilly asked the same question a month later at  
OSCON he got the opposite answer (of course).  I spent 6 years at Sun  
asking the question every chance I got and probably because of who I  
am I heard clear support for a *compatible* open J2SE...which is what  
Harmony is trying to be (and why I'm a supporter) :-)...

In my experience, James is a fair-minded guy and I believe that a  
strong, ethical and hard-working Harmony community is bound to  
impress him over time.
