Peace breaks out?!?

Wow. The press release from Oracle and IBM is pretty vague, but it certainly gives the impression that peace has broken out between the two. The JCP logjam has been a huge problem for the last few years, despite many attempts on Sun's part to make progress. When Sun was trying to do this, the Oracle/IBM version of a solution effectively amounted to Sun taking a vow of poverty. Does this break the logjam? Only time will tell, but I'd sure be happy if it does. I'm sure that there's a great backstory that will never come out.
