SYSTEM NEWS FOR SUN USERS
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
"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."
