An interesting Blog on this topic by Eric Roch. As a BEA and Oracle Alumni - it would really be a shame if Oracle does this. If this true, guess the age old saying goes, to the victor (acquirer) goes the spoils. IMO - AquaLogic is better than the current Oracle's SOA Platform - with one exception. Oracle's SCA modeling tool in JDeveloper is much better than BEA's so called SCA Modeling tool.
Lets see what Oracles Executives have to say about this on the July 1st Web cast.
