I’m generally impressed with the quality of our competitors FUD and anti-JBoss marketing. Our competitors may not be super-smart but they generally make up for it in raw man-power (or girl power) and can usually produce reasonably well researched; well articulated arguments. But this latest piece from Oracle is way, way below their usual standards. [...]
