Java man Gosling leaves Oracle in a flap

Following is borging by Oracle, Java creator James Gosling has left what's left of Sun.

In his blog yesterday, Gosling said he resigned from Oracle on April 2.

As a Sun Microsystems employee Gosling came up Java in the early '90s. Sun introduced the code in 1995. Strangely, Java was shown to be holey on the day Gosling went off in a flap.

Gosling remained tight-lipped as to why hw was doing the off. He said telling it like it is would "do more harm than good."

"I resigned from Oracle a week ago (April 2nd). I apologize to everyone in St Petersburg who came to TechDays on Thursday expecting to hear from me. I really hated not being there.

"As to why I left, it's difficult to answer: just about anything I could say that would be accurate and honest would do more harm than good. The hardest part is no longer being with all the great people I've had the privilege to work with over the years. I don't know what I'm going to do next, other than take some time off before I start job hunting."
