I don't think you understand. Let me give you an example. With Spring, I can browse their SVN trunk and see what they're up to. I can use unreleased software, submit bugs, and possible even submit patches.
With BDB, I only see Zips of releases, making it relatively inconvenient to contribute. I love the BDB guys, but getting involved is really encumbered by Oracle. SpringSource and JBoss, on the other hand, do a great job of encouraging involvement.
Open Source In Name Only not only hinders an application's progress and development, but it's not really sustainable. Why give out something for free, call it Open Source, but not seek help from the community? It makes me think the commercial companies are just going to dump it when they figure out they're not making any money off of it.
Also, Oracle Forums SUCK. They're slow and buggy. Honestly, with the one exception of BDB, I have never seen software improve after Oracle got their hands on it (& I credit the motivated Sleepycat team, especially Mark Hayes...not Oracle). I'm not a fan of Oracle's main DB and everything else they've put out, with the exception BDB, has been awful, amateurish garbage. I used to hate Microsoft and they I started working with Oracle products and really started appreciating MS.
Glassfish v3 is on of the best web containers I've seen yet. It's as fast as Jetty and Tomcat and just as easy to use. I'd hate to see it die in favor of WebLogic or plummet to mediocrity, like the rest of the Oracle Family.
Obviously, I'm a bit worried about MySQL as well. Sun was just starting to put out compelling products and figuring out what to do with Java, I hope Oracle doesn't make anything worse.
