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. It contains a multitude of blatantly incorrect statements – most seemingly not through malice but more likely through pure ignorance and laziness.
The only conclusion I was able to draw from the blog post (and it’s not easy to draw any conculsion) is that Oracle answer to pretty much anything is “we can make anything better with Engineered Systems”. If that’s Oracle strategy then they probably need to salvage the hardware business they’ve managed to run into the ground.
By and large, the blog post is of such poor quality that it barely deserves a response but Shane produced one anyway – I guess it presents such an easy opportunity to make Oracle look clueless.
Come on Oracle – get your act together !
