I have never seen such a compliment technologies ever. Never saw a Sun guy cursing Oracle and either way. They are as open to use other's technologies as if its their own. Yeah they do have appserver conflict or the message service but neither are the market leaders in that segment. Oracle has much better sales force and Sun has a better stack. With StorageTek now part of Sun, wouldn't it make more sense for Oracle to have an end to end solution? Afterall Oracle is a leader in data management and how about its' storage too? Sun can provide Oracle its' hardware, solaris and Java which is so integral part of Oracle's future. They are going to merge one day, or so I wish.
