I was at a Java developer's conference last weekend and a number of speakers publicly lamented the label given to this product. Since the product has little to nothing to do with Java, they consider the label to be an inappropriate exploitation by Sun of the Java "brand", which they (the developers) had helped to build. I tend to agree. If the product tanks, it could very well negatively affect the perception of the Java brand, at least among those who are uninformed -- which unfortunately is quite a few people.
But then, this is just the kind of thing I've come to expect from Sun over the last couple of years.
