Oracle Web developer, David Bostick, is joining the company as a full-time product developer.
Oracle has been the leader in the Java ecosystem since 2007 and Bostikick joins a talented team.
Oracle Web Developer will also focus on new technology and infrastructure that will enable more powerful applications to run on Oracle-owned hardware.
Bostick will be responsible for building new features and supporting existing Oracle-hosted products including Java EE 7, Java SE, JavaFX, and Java Virtual Machines.
Oracle previously announced that it was acquiring the JBoss Java Platform (JEP) company for $1.9 billion in 2019.
Oracle will continue to invest in JEP to ensure its Java-based products are widely used by enterprises, and will continue its efforts to integrate Java with other platforms.
Oracle will continue with its existing Java SE platform, Java Suite, and existing Java APIs.
Oracle’s new product team, which includes a number of new product teams, including the Oracle Developer Development Team, will be led by Bostack.
The new product development team will be tasked with developing new features, APIs, and tools for Oracle-based software and will also contribute to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure team.
The acquisition of JBoss is a huge step for Oracle.
It is also a huge win for Oracle in terms of bringing Java to other platforms as well as supporting its existing customers.
Oracle’s customers are diverse and diverse in terms on the types of applications they run, so it will be great to work with the new team.
The acquisition will help us ensure that we have the right products for Oracle’s existing customers and enable Oracle to continue building on the success of Java and Java SE in the enterprise.
