Java EE renamed 'Jakarta EE' after Big Red brand spat


Re: Unsurprising outcome

I refer you to the following quote from "Yes, Prime Minister", on presenting options :-

Bernard Woolley: "What if he [the Prime Minister] demands options?"

Sir Humphrey Appleby: "Well, it’s obvious, Bernard. The Foreign Office will happily present him with three options, two of which are, on close inspection, exactly the same."

Sir Richard Wharton: "Plus a third which is totally unacceptable."

Sir Humphrey Appleby: "Like bombing Warsaw or invading France."
