The legal basis of the lawsuit with Google has nothing to do with "open source projects using java", and there is no reason for concern relative to neo4j.

Hi Neo team,
Friday the 13th was a bad day for Java lovers. All of us heard today that
Oracle is suing Google for using Java in Android. This mobile O/S uses Java
and is open source.
We all know Google could have used its own operating system. Java provides
no feature that a smart team of people can't write. Streams, file handling,
Internet protocols, GUI are not the exclusive domain of Java. All these
things were done in Assembly, C and C++ languages.
Neo team also has made the same mistake as Google. You could have used C or
C** to develop your application.  Are you concerned that Oracle may train
its gun on you? Neo DB could be a threat to Oracle.
What are your road maps to move away from Java? or do you think you are
protected from similar law suits?

Regards
Suryadev
