Armageddon on Android: Oracle processes the use of Java

Oracle, the world leader in large-scale database for companies, has filed a lawsuit against Google's Android platform. They claim that the JVM was not developed correctly, as Google hired former Oracle employees claiming that they were induced to develop the JVM for the application, mainly in the second version of Android, where the applications run with better efficiency than than in the first version. Due to these optimizations, Oracle initiated this process by raising that several employees working on Android were former employees of it.

Google, instead of using another source code as C language in the applications, preferred to use Java-based applications, limiting the performance and energy consumption of their smartphones to some extent.
Oracle is asking Google to stop developing for the platform and remove all Android-based devices from the market.
