I am the founder and CEO of Data Geekery GmbH, located in Zurich, Switzerland. With our company, we have been selling database products and services around Java and SQL since 2013. Ever since my Master's studies at EPFL in 2006, I have been fascinated by the interaction of Java and SQL. Most of this experience I have obtained in the Swiss E-Banking field through various variants (JDBC, Hibernate, mostly with Oracle). I am happy to share this knowledge at various conferences, JUGs, in-house presentations and on our blog. Lukas is a DZone MVB and is not an employee of DZone and has posted 255 posts at DZone.

Now THIS is an interesting Quora question. Citing:

What will be the next big acquisition by Oracle?

What will be the next acquisition made by Oracle that could be compared (as a strategic decision, not necessarily  by value) to Oracle’s Sun Microsystems acquisition?

From my perspective, clearly, Oracle will buy jOOQ from Data Geekery GmbH, in order to finally closely integrate their two most valuable assets:

  • The Oracle Database
  • The JVM and Java

But maybe, they’ll just buy another airline ;-)

What is your bet? Comment below, or answer the question here:
