Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Oracle Java DB.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
It'll be better if Oracle Java supports open source technologies, like Node.js. Many APIs can be developed in applications like Node.js, and it's a lot easier to use a programming language like Node.js because it's totally open-source and available. It also has a lot of APIs that I can download and access from anywhere. You can, of course, use microservices, but I think the marketing around microservices products isn't working, and a lot of folks seem to be using Node.js and Angular as their programming languages for API development. Oracle Java also supports a lot of the microservices concepts, and a lot of the work can be done within that. Java needs to come out with a lot more and let us do more with the UI. This will benefit the future of Java.
There should be a software-defined Oracle DB, as well as a software-defined cloud management platform. The biggest lesson that I have learned from using Oracle products is vendor lock-in.
In terms of improvement, I'd like an automation tool that is lower priced. The core prices are very high. We have to train our employees in Java.
