JUnit removed from NetBeans?

Looks like Oracles lawyers check the license of NetBeans code. It may be possible that JUnit is removed from the standard Netbeans installation if it doesnt change its license.

Another crazy story of lawyers and software.

Kent Beck already responded and a former Sun employee suggested to keep the current license model to "keep Oracle's aggressiveness in check". Interesting times ...
