Oracle wins already.. Patent is doing no good to the society but the commercial company.

I new this would happen when Oracle purchased the company. Oracle has NEVER been a user friendly company and I refuse to knowingly use any of its products.

@Embd SW netwk: No the *documents* are copyright. Using the documents to produce a compliant implementation is not breach of the document copyright. Purchasing the document alone *is* purchasing a licence to implement a compliant product. Copyright and patent are not the same thing, though they both deal with intellectual property. One is about original content, the other about original invention.

I'd love to hear a bit more about what are the specific technical goodies that make Dalvik superior to the Java VM. ...and analysis from objective s/w engineers about whether you believe it.

Yes, it is so. Java apps used to run on phones before but with little impression. Dalvik VM did improve a lot.

The google android site features a detailed video by it's engineer on what constitues the Dalvik VM and how it is different from JVM. I suppose google to have taken all necessary precautions to this effect.

Stack-based VMs have been around for a long time. For example, the UCSD Pascal suite of the 1970's used a VM called p-code and there were numerous other examples. Having worked on both p-code and JVMs, I struggle to see that the JVM has any huge leaps of invention past p-code beyond the addition of exception handling and garbage collection - features apparent in other VMs such as some LISP systems and postscript.

Ultimately the opinions of an engineer have no bearing on the matter. All that matters is the legal position. As for the Dalvik VM, there is a very valid technical purpose for such a thing. It is not just some attempt to wiggle off a legal hook. Dalvik can be implemented more efficiently than JVM on many architectures.

Gosling should be protecting his own creation, favoring the 'Sun' side.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
