We are a group of Java JVM developers in Bangalore, engineers (to say the least) we hope to create a thriving Java community in Bangalore. Java being open sourced is easily one of the greatest piece of news in recent memory for us developers. Now, Java will be adopted even more widely than it was. Part of being open source means to build communities. Communities of developers, users, experts and beginners, which are needed for the greater adoption of Java. These communities are the life-line of any open source product, and as users, it is our responsibility to strengthen Java's life-line.
