Oracle will get its day in court against Google as it looks to defend its intellectual property, which it claimed the search engine giant has breached.

Taking a fellow tech company to court over unauthorised use of code is something that Oracle is well versed in having plenty of recent practice with SAP's TomorrowNow operation which illegally downloaded its rival's code.

The argument against Google is on fairly similar lines dating back to 2010 with Oracle claiming that its Java patent's were infringed in the Android mobile operating system.

Google is contesting the claim and the two will get the chance to fight it out in a San Francisco federal court next month.
