The Java Store Appears To Be Dead

Nov-01-2010 For all the promise that the Java Store once had, Oracle seems to have completely abandoned the project. There has not been a formal announcement that the Java Store is going to close. In fact, there hasn't been any word at all on the Java Store for many months. New app submissions stopped being reviewed some time in the middle of July. While you can still download and install the Java Store client, it is no longer possible to preview or purchase apps. My contact at Oracle is no longer responding to email inquiries. At this point in time I am declaring the Java Store to be dead.
