Salesforce tries to block Microsoft's LinkedIn acquisition

InfoWorld - Fri, 09/30/2016 - 06:55

Microsoft made a splash earlier this year when it announced the largest acquisition in its history, signing an agreement to buy LinkedIn for $26.2 billion. But now, Salesforce is trying to convince the European Union to block the deal. 

Salesforce Chief Legal Officer Burke Norton will argue to the EU's competition authority that Microsoft's control of LinkedIn's dataset following an acquisition would be anticompetitive. EU competition chief Margarethe Vestager said in January that her agency would be looking directly at whether a company's use of data is bad for competition, and these complaints seem aimed squarely at those comments.

Java 9 proposal could speed some apps, but slow others

InfoWorld - Fri, 09/30/2016 - 06:00

Java applications will get faster startup times thanks to a formal proposal to include ahead-of-time compilation in the platform.

The draft Java Development Kit proposal, authored by Vladimir Kozlov, principal technical staff member at Oracle, is targeted for inclusion in Java 9, which is expected to be available next summer.

[ The big 4 Java IDEs reviewed: See how Eclipse, NetBeans, JDeveloper, and IntelliJ IDEA stack up. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorld's Application Development newsletter. ]

"We would love to see this make it into JDK 9, but that will of course depend on the outcome of the OpenJDK process for this JEP (JDK Enhancement Proposal)," said Georges Saab, vice president of software development in the Java platform group at Oracle, on Thursday. Ahead-of-time compilation has been a stated goal for Java 9 to address the issue of slow startup.
