Android Java Google Oracle Wars

Not sure what this means to android development but it does sound bad. More broadly what does it mean to java development if its successful?

As much as I disagree with it, I hope they actually manage to cause allot of damage. It's not that I hate android, but more because I hate java. If people are too scared to use it it will make way for better frameworks/languages that are not in any way dependent on oracle/sun. I'm not worried for google's os as google has the power to find or make alternatives if it gets to that point.
