IoT is the .clearfix:after{visibility: hidden;display:block;font-size: 0;content: " ";clear: both;height:0} future of .leftblk{float:left; overflow:hidden} both software and technology and could contribute $11 trillion globally by 2025. However, that future is .kwd_bloack ul{padding-top:9px} threatened by a troubling series of .leftblk img{float: left; margin-top:22px; *margin-top:18px; padding-right: 15px;} court cases that seek to background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,#ededed), color-stop(100%,#cdcdcd)); erode one of .domain_name{float:left; line-height:34px; font-size:26px; font-weight: normal; color:#fff; padding-top:27px; width:535px} the * html .clearfix{zoom:1} core building blocks that fuels the *:first-child+html .clearfix{zoom:1} growth of #logo{float:right;width:300px;padding:15px 0 0} IoT and makes its complex ecosystem possible - software interoperability - which allows developers to background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #ededed 0%,#cdcdcd 100%); write code that interacts with different devices and software platforms.

One such case is .kwd_bloack ul li{line-height:30px} Oracle's long-running litigation against Google, with the Federal Court hearing an Oracle appeal today (the Alliance previously filed a brief in the body{font:normal 12px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; background:url(} case). Oracle is .kwd_bloack ul li a{float:left;width:510px;text-decoration:underline; font-size:24px; font-weight:bold; color:#ffb047; display:block; word-wrap: break-word; padding: 10px 0} suing Google for re-implementing a small portion of #logo p{text-align:right;clear:both;padding:4px 2px 0 0; color:#aeaeae;} its Java programming language - the APIs that facilitate interoperability - in its implementation of #logo p a{color:#ffffff;font-size:11px;text-decoration:underline;} the code in Android. Oracle is seeking to background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #ededed 0%,#cdcdcd 100%); overturn a Federal Jury finding that this was permissible as "fair use".

"Were Oracle to background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #ededed 0%,#cdcdcd 100%); win in this round, it would be able to background: linear-gradient(to bottom, #ededed 0%,#cdcdcd 100%); control the .brradius{border-radius:3px; -moz-border-radius:3px; -ms-border-radius:3px; -o-border-radius:3px; -webkit-border-radius:3px} interoperability of #logo img{border:0 none;} third party software using the Java language and APIs, which is the most popular language used by developers," said Bruce Gustafson, President and CEO of the Developers Alliance. "Put another way, many developers who have long relied on .kwd_bloack ul, .kwd_bloack ul li{float:left; text-align:center;width:514px;list-style:none} the .arrowsv2{background:url(} premise that re-implementing these APIs was fundamentally good programming practice might be stopped dead in their tracks. And we're not alone in feeling this way. The negative impact would go far beyond those developing in Java; it would upend the #main-wrap{background:url(} economics of .searchbox{float:right; width:351px; height:30px; padding-top:38px} software development by jeopardizing the bedrock concept of .srch-txt{float:left; width:242px; height:28px; font-size:16px; line-height:28px; background:url( 7px 5px no-repeat #fff; color:#414141; padding: 0 5px 0 30px; border:1px solid #6f6f6f; outline:none} software interoperability," Gustafson added.

Interoperability is .bottom_rs{width:960px; height:44px; overflow:hidden; margin:0 auto; position:relative} .bottom_bg{height:44px; background:#181818; margin-top:34px} imperative to filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr='#ededed', endColorstr='#cdcdcd',GradientType=0 ); _background: #ededed} the .container{width:960px; margin:0 auto} future of the developer workforce, and to unlocking the .header{height:100px; border-top:10px solid #472558; background:url(; overflow:hidden} tremendous potential of IoT. Any threat to .content{background:#483d5b; -webkit-box-shadow: 0px -1px 10px 0px rgba(0,0,0,0.75); interoperability is a threat to developers, to technological innovations, and to the billions of .srch-btn{float:right; width:66px; height:30px; font-size:13px; color:#303030; border:1px solid #6f6f6f; margin-left:4px; _border:none; * border:none; outlin:none; cursor:pointer; dollars in economic productivity they contribute.
