re: Well that's a separate story :D, and a separate lawsuit which is still not settled.

That's why Google is pushing kotlin ,maybe.

Kotlin needs a JVM underneath, though.

On Android it doesn't use JVM, but their own implementation ART (and DVM, formerly). The Java bytecode is transpiled during build to ART bytecode (btw I'm not an Android dev, so this might be a huge simplification).

But I think the whole lawsuit is about Android API being basically Java. It's not that like they said "you can write your Android applications in Java", it's "we have here a very familiar SDK that you can write your Android applications in, as easy as Java" :D
