Tips for migration from blogs.sun.com to wordpress.com

See Category Migrating From Weblogger on new bloghttp://virtguru.wordpress.com/

Here is my Step-by-Step process:

1 Migrating from blogs.sun.com – Understanding Movable Format Pitfalls
2 Migrating from blogs.sun.com - Imported Movable Type Format Test Entry
3 Migrating from blogs.sun.com – Exporting to Movable Type Import + Atom
4 Migrating from blogs.sun.com – Importing Resources (Files,Images,…..)
5 Migrating from Blogs.sun.com – Fixing Resources Links (Images and so on)
6 Migrating from blogs.sun.com – Add old Autor as your Nickname
7 Migrating from blogs.sun.com – Saving old urls and tags
8 Migrating from blogs.sun.com – merging and fixing exported blogs
9 Migrating from blogs.sun.com – importing by chunks and final checks
10 Migrating from blogs.sun.com – Replacing text on Web with FoxReplace

Downloads: Glassfish V3 Pet Catalog sample DEMO in VM Template

My colleagues will handle publishing downloads on public place for you, for now you can get images internaly at:
http://jsc-nfs.czech.sun.com/room/virtual/JeOS/OSOL0906/vmtemplate-sample/GFv3sample/VMTemplates

For information about "What Virtualizations platforms are supported be images?" or
"How to start image in Virtualization platform ?" look into JeOS prototype download page

Part 12: Glassfish V3 Pet Catalog sample DEMO in VM Template - Clean and Convert

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype was designed as PURE CLI enviroment providing main building stone for creation of Virtual Appliances or VM Templates

In this example I will DEMOnstrate creation of Evaluation type Virtual Appliance / VM Template which will leveradge OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS prototype and just in Dec/09 released Glassfish v3, Java EE 6 and Netbeans 6.8 with simple Java EE 6 demo. This entry is part of Virtual Appliances & OVF workshop.

New Glassfish V3 introduce an unique network repository based modular structure, so we can more easily create really simple initial DEMO setup which user can extend by installation more samples right from Glassfish V3 repository or from Netbeans GUI.


Step 6: Clean and Convert VM
   Step 6c: Generate VirtualBOX 3.x VDI IDE format
      Convert VMDK SCSI to VDI IDE format with VirtualBox
      Configure VirtualBox for VDI IDE
      Reconfigure HW with VA Live-CD in VirtualBox?for VDI IDE
   Step 6d: Generate Parallels format       Open in Parallels JeOS image and recreate OS disk
      Restore from ZFS stream from VA Live-CD
      Add Freeware NI network driver
   Step 6e: Generate xVM/XEN compatible PARA and HVM RAW disk formats

LAST RESORT: Lets keep in touch ! Let's 'LinkedIn' together !

As a Last resort solution , many of us on SUN's Prague site created or updated a LinkedIn Profile, to still keep linked, whatever will happen after Oracle acquisition, I just start my LinkedIn Profile.

KISS of DEAD: My last day in SUN will be 15 Jan 2010

My job position was affected by work force reduction

As part of reducing actual SUN costs (as was publicly announced in October 2009) some jobs in SUNs Prague (Europe) site was canceled (you probably already see some FAREWELLs from some of my Prague site colleagues), unfortunate my job position was affected too. My last day SUN in will be 15 Jan 2010. Sad, It was really great near 5 years with all of you in SUN :-(

Wrapping actual JeOS and VM Templates stuff

I will try to wrap my experience for some most important topics of OpenSolaris JeOS prototypes and VM Templates (Virtual Appliances)creation next week, I will still be publishing them in this SUN blog, so you have them all on one place, if you will have any question about current of upcoming posts please send them directly to jeos-discuss@opensolaris.org.
I am not sure then blogs.sun.com will survive Oracle acquisition, I will backup VirtualGuru blog myself, but I will don't have time to recreate blog on other place, so please, copy stuff you are interesting in yourself.

Don't worry, we are community already !

Building a real JeOS OpenSolaris project and leading related community OpenSolaris Project: JeOS - Just enough Operating System was a new and exciting experience for me.
I will like to continue to contribute regularly to OpenSolaris JeOS community in my free time, of course my conditions will change:
If time permits me (I have second child, son, 3 months old) and if my technical possibilities will allow me (As fun of Virtualization I have at home powerful x86 box, but I will don't have access to SPARC SUNV4 systems any more, also my home Internet connection have just couple GB download size limit)

After my SUN leave I will switch to external blog http://virtguru.wordpress.com (I align new blog name with my OpenSolaris nick name) and you can access me by OpenSolaris account using virtguru@opensolaris.org

Moving forward

It's simple:
Grow your community :-)

PS: and for living ?
I am looking for new jog opportunity Senior engineering IT job in Prague (Preferable QA and/or Virtualization related), drop me E-mail or LinkedIn, if you will know about some actual opportunity (even back in Oracle).
