Oracle is limiting the development of Java by focusing the future 
development of the language on enterprise use, to the detriment of a 
wider, more diverse Java community, charged a pair of analysts at 
Forrester Research.

"Sun had a very broad focus for Java, including enterprise middleware 
but also PCs, mobile devices, and embedded systems. Oracle's focus will 
be on enterprise middleware first and foremost, because that's where the 
money is," concluded the report, authored by Forrester analysts Jeffrey 
Hammond and John Rymer.

Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.
