    Strategy Blunder - 1Strategy Blunder - 1

    Focus on hardware, ignore software

    Sun did not make money on Java, others did.

    Owned specs, not product. Sun played big brother

    open sourced, first partially, then completely.

    Strategy Blunder - 2Strategy Blunder - 2

    Craftsmanship ignored initially Examples

    Java UI Performance Templates, method properties,

    lambda expressions Ended up losing developers

    Go after foes and friends too compete and include everything

    Examples CORBA RMI Spring EJB3 Eclipse Netbeans Tomcat/Jboss Glassfish

    Made framework vendors insecure.

    Lost money. Made developers happy?
