According to ZDNet: "While Sun is on a path to open up Java on its own terms, IBM doesn't like where things are heading. In Sun's world, Java needs a guardian angel to protect the sanctity of the many things that Java already offers and, in Sun's eyes, that guardian angel should be Sun. But IBM thinks Java should be an open standard governed by an independent and objective organization. So says IBM director of e-business standards strategy Bob Sutor."
