Sun + Oracle - A set of links and a GlassFish perspective

Well, other than the expensive iPad announcement there's lots of comments and reports about the Oracle+Sun event from yesterday (if you haven't been following the deal has now closed). Here's a brief list of such reports (in no particular order) :

The Sun has not set: Oracle makes Sun shine brighter than ever
Oracle/Sun Strategy: We will invest heavily in JavaFX
Sun + Oracle, NetBeans, Glassfish, JavaOne and the Death of Kenai
Oracle’s Sun Java Strategy: Business as Usual
Oracle’s strategy for GlassFish, MySQL, OpenOffice & Solaris
Oracle lays out plans for Sun

As you can read there, GlassFish is in pretty good shape with active development, remaining the RI for Java EE, with support for current version until 2017, and nice words about the OSGi kernel, the Grizzly nio framework, the Metro Web Services stack and the overall lightweight developer experience. Expect more sharing of technologies between WebLogic and GlassFish in the future. This should be reassuring to existing developers and customers and of interest for a whole set of new ones since GlassFish will be sold as part of the WebLogic offering in addition to a standalone offering.

Hudson, NetBeans (a bit of a surprise to some), Java 7 (due in 2010), JavaOne (in September) and many others are covered in the above reports with positive comments for all.

Hi Alexis,

Not sure if you know more, but some people seem to interpret the webcasts differently:

Quote: "The main goal being that they will be collapsing Sun software technology into their current software stack where it makes sense, and to push conflicting Sun Software products such as Glassfish down to a role of being used for non-mission critical department apps."

I've been worried that Glassfish will never see open source clustering again and that Glassfish would basically be thrown back to the days where Sun made a reference implementation that was not meant for production use.

Tell me this isn't true ;-)

I personally think that it's a bit too late and certainly anachronistic to bring back those days.

I don't have more data than you do at this point.
