I really don't buy the conspiracy theory and I'm puzzled to see the article up-voted so high without comment.
I'm much more interested in the question of what will actually arrive in Java/JDK7 and whether they'll ever move to a faster release cycle than the current geological process.
The "argument" between Apache and Sun is hardly well documented. He cites a two year old open letter from Apache to Sun, and then in a follow-up article indulges in a great deal of armchair lawyering.
The cited links to Sun developer blogs don't seem to support the argument being made one jot.
Okay, so perhaps that's not "well documented" but it's also open and available for public review.
