Why Oracle will win its Java copyright case – and why you'll be glad when it does

Re: Screw this!

Would a victory for Oracle put 3rd party tools like Eclipse that generate Java code and use Java APIs out of business as well? When you create an open ecosystem as Sun did (remember when it was 'free'?) you have to balance adoption rate against monitization and proprietary aspects. Looks like Sun, and thus Oracle tilted too far on the open end to later close it up and cash in.
