Since Scala runs on the JVM, is it also an Oracle product?

Is this a serious question? Anyway, the answer is no.

Scala/Jython/Clojure/JRuby etc are not Oracle products, and neither are any programs that you might write that run on the JVM.

Oracle has many of its own products that run on the JVM as well, but that's because Oracle wrote (or bought) them. Scala is nothing to do with Oracle.

Most of the time it is the HotSpot JVM that is used as the Java run time and the HotSpot JVM is owned by Oracle. Scala is designed to run (compile to a byte code) on a JVM, be it HotSpot or J9.

... and there's still time to sign and learn about Functional Programming Principles In Scala from the language's creator Martin Odersky of EPFL at Coursera - course starts on 25 March and I can highly recommend it.

Thanks for the hint. I did already a few courses at coursera and can really recommend them!
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
