Java Goes Open Source

As long-time supporters of the Open Source movement, it is no great surprise that Sun Microsystems has announced the Open Sourcing of its Java technology under Project Glassfish. See James Gosling’s (the "father" of Java) comments on his blog.

Use of the Duke logo on this post is used without asking permission – because Duke is now Open Sourced as well!

Kudos to Sun – again. It is so nice to see the “big boys” like them and IBM supporting the Open Source movement. When, oh when will Microsoft get in on the act? Their Shared Source initiative is a joke (and not a very funny one at that).
