Then neither of you have an idea and are guessing ;)

They built their own VM because its optimised for mobile devices. The
Davlik VM executes dex files, not java files. These dex files are
optimised to the hilt for devices with low power and memory
capabilities. In addition the Davlik VM can add further optimisations
"on device" depending on the HW in use.

The whole law suit is nonsense. If Oracle were to win this there are
HUGE repercussions not least about things like profit acrued by phone
networks who directly profit from apps and usage based on the claimed
theft of their (Oracles) IP ...

At the end of the day its all about the sheckles. And the OSS beards in
Sun and from the mysql team knew exactly what they were doing. They sold
their principles to the devil.

You know who you are Harry Angel.
