Java co-creator James Gosling leaves Oracle

Java logoJava co-creator James Gosling is saying good-bye to Oracle just a few months after the company acquired his longtime employer, Sun Microsystems.

Gosling made the announcement on his blog, saying he resigned from the company on April 2.

Gosling didn't give any reason for his departure. Instead, he wrote, "Just about anything I could say that would be accurate and honest would do more harm than good." As for what he'll do next, Gosling said he doesn't know--just that he'll take some time off before starting his job search.

Gosling helped create the Java programming language while at Sun in the early 1990s. Oracle announced it intended to buy Sun for $7.4 billion in April 2009. However, the deal was held up as the company awaited regulatory approval. Oracle said the acquisition was finally completed at the end of January of this year.

Other prominent figures from Sun's history have also announced their departures in recent months. Sun co-founder and longtime CEO Scott McNealy issued a long, bittersweet memo to employees in January in which he reflected on his 28 years with the company. Jonathan Schwartz, who took over the reins as CEO in 2006, announced his resignation via Twitter in February.
