There is still a lot of tension during the court trial in terms of damages that SAP has to pay to its competitor Oracle for using their proprietary industrial systems without their permission after acquiring TomorrowNow.
SAP has decided at the last moment that it will not contest Oracle's claim about the copyright infringement by TomorrowNow, and the company further admitted that TomorrowNow did commit wrongdoing. The confession will lower the duration of the trial.
Oracle amended their original lawsuit by claiming 'approximately one third of Android's Application Programmer Interface (API) packages' are 'derivative of Oracle's copyrighted Java API packages' and related documents".
Oracle's new president Mark Hurd announced the new product line of the company, Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-8 at the Oracle's user conference last week.
According to a recent press release, Oracle has been witnessing increasing adoption of Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 6 with over 9.1 million downloads of the Java EE SDK and GlassFish Server distributions during the last 12 months.
