    Hey hey guys!

    Well, in the last couple of days there is been discussed about the rumors about the possibility of Google cast out Java programming from their plans and adopt Swift as their new open-source programming language to develop apps. I am a little bit concern about it, are you?

    Have a good day.

    I've not heard anything. AFAIK Swift is Apple, uses Xcode on a Mac, probably to make iOS apps and things. Can't imagine Google doing that somehow. Anymore than them using Microsoft C#, .NET or whatever.

    I saw some of them too...There are rumors, but I think it's not a coincidence just because of the Google vs Oracle case

    Apple has made SWIFT programming language "Open Source", and not all that long ago IIRC.

    in any event, Google is now experimenting with SWIFT to see about changing up their stuff to get away from the Lawsuit with Oracle over the JAVA code...

    In essense, they are going to tell Oracle to stuff it, and move on... JAVA is not the only language that can get the job done, it just happens to be very popular "right now"...

    but, with SWIFT already in use on iOS, and if Google takes it on, JAVA is going to loose out.

    When this started popping up a while back I thought it was just another satirical piece that got picked up from The Onion.
