Vol 64 Issue 2 2003-06-09  Article 10132 from section "News"

     An Open Source Site Featuring Code, Tools, Mailing Lists, Forums, Blogs

        Sun has unveiled the new java.net Web site, created to facilitate
        collaboration on applied technology and vertical industry solutions
        involving the use of Java[TM] technology. The Sun-sponsored site will
        also benefit from the editorial resources of CollabNet Inc. and O'Reilly
        & Associates. java.net is designed to expand the existing Java
        technology portfolio of applications, tools and services.

        The java.net site will offer a broad range of advanced collaboration
        tools including project and community source hosting, mailing lists,
        forums, blogs (which will feature regular participation by James
        Gosling) and wikis. It will also feature "Javapedia," a wiki-based
        encyclopedia of Java technology projects currently in development by
        Java technology enthusiasts.

        The site will also offer millions of lines of Java programming language
        code released by Sun specifically for the site. Examples of code,
        toolsets, communities and projects made available by Sun will include
        Java technology Desktop, Java[SM] Web Services and XML, and Java
        technology *. Existing open source communities that will also be a
        part of java.net include Project JXTA, Jini[TM] technology and
        NetBeans[TM] IDE.

        "I'm very e*d about the strength and variety of code coming to
        java.net, and about the opportunity the new community gives developers
        to propel Java technology into new markets and new applications," said
        James Gosling, Sun fellow, senior vice president, Sun Laboratories, and
        creator of Java technology. "There's a tremendous collective force of
        innovation and ideas flowing through java.net, and I can't wait to see
        what it spawns."

1. SN#10126 The java.net Web Site: A Place for Collaboration

SYSTEM NEWS FOR SUN USERS
Vol 64 Issue 2 2003-06-09  Article 10126 from section "Java Technology"

     Origin of the Site, Vision, Goals and Features

        Sun's new site for developers of Java[TM] technology is:

        http://www.java.net

        The Web site has been formed as a central meeting place for developers
        and Java technology enthusiasts to collaborate on projects, share ideas
        and create the next "big thing." There are links for communities such as
        NetBeans[TM] software, Jini[TM] technology, Project JXTA, and games,
        desktop and patterns for Java technology. One of the projects featured
        on the site is the Javapedia Project, which is working on creating a
        complete and accurate online encyclopedia of all things related to Java
        technology.

        Richard P. Gabriel, chief scientist of a small laboratory at Sun,
        compares the creation of the java.net site to the community efforts that
        built the Oxford English Dictionary and cathedrals.

        Jon Byous notes the technical efforts that have gone into making the
        site. CollabNet is providing hosting and advanced collaboration tools,
        and O'Reilly and Associates is contributing with content editing. Byous
        explains some of the features and gives definitions of them.

        John Bobowicz, community manager of java.net said, "We're not looking to
        reinvent the wheel here. In fact, we're linking to established sites to
        make it easier for Java developers to integrate existing resources into
        java.net's collaborative environment and community activities."

        The site is encouraging participation and contributions.
