Java's new G1 collector not paid-for after all

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 5 years ago

Java 2

An anonymous reader writes "As a follow up to the previous /. story, Sun appears to have quietly edited the Java 6u14 release notes language to now say: "G1 is available as early access in this release, please try it and give us feedback. Usage in production settings without a Java SE for Business support contract is not recommended". So does this mean it was all one huge typo ? Or was Oracle/Sun tentatively testing the waters to see the community's reaction ? In either case it's nice to see Java's back on the right path."

Lawyers again, IMO (1)

I suspect it was more that no one paid attention to (or didn't feel enough will to fight against) how the lawyers phrased things until the community cried foul. The message from Sun folks was pretty consistent: the intent was to stress that it isn't ready for production.
