Ubuntu Users Gets Java DB Surprise and A Lot More Than That...


It has been announced today, Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (7.04) has been released and it includes Sun's complete Java stack.

This is the first time that an entire, production quality Java stack with tooling is being included in an open source GNU/Linux distribution - greatly simplifying the process for Linux developers and users to access Java technology.

The complete and fully supported components of Sun's Java stack which are packaged for Ubuntu are Java SE 6 JDK, GlassFish v1, NetBeans IDE 5.5 and Java DB 10.2 (based on Apache Derby). (FAQ)

You can also check Tom Marble's blog entry for additional information. This is very exciting indeed.

You can 'apt-get' install Java DB as an optional Ubuntu package such as:
# apt-get install sun-java6-javadb
and it should get installed under '/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/db/'

Jonathan Schwartz: "We almost died"

Robert Scoble posted some video interview of Sun Microsystems' CEO, Jonathan Schwartz, and Tim Marsland, Sun's CTO in charge of Solaris. The discussion ranged from Jonathan's pitch to Steve Jobs as to why Apple should include the Java runtime on the new iPhone to Schwartz' surviving a train wreck back in the 1980s and how that had a profound effect on his leadership skills.
