You seem to be talking about employing the same strategy that Komatsu 
does against its competitor Caterpillar. That of encircling the 
competitor like a python and doing all the periphery product offerings 
better than the competitor then moving towards their core (the 
enterprise in the case of Java) leaving them no where to go.
