Java App Store is dead (and Oracle killed it)

Java App Store news: I may have missed the announcement somewhere, but as I was researching Java on the Mac App Store, I just found that the Sun/Oracle Java App Store is dead. Here's an image of the Java App Store website:

Java App Store is dead

This URL used to be the place Sun was advertising that Java app developers could put their Java applications, and it was going to rival Apple's original iPhone App Store.

But now the Java App Store is dead. Very, very dead. And Oracle killed it.

Long live Java apps!

(Here's a link to the defunct Java App Store web page.)



Oracle buying SUN was the worst thing that could ever happen . Google should have bought them instead. This appstore could have made serious cash and kept many Java devs busy. What a shame
