LOTD #5: Blogging Gold for Sun - Forrester loves it!

A recent report by Forrester Research published a list of 15 companies that really get corporate blogging and produce blogs that are informative, fascinating, and a joy to read even for people who aren’t die-hard fans of the company. Here is what the report says about Sun Microsystems:

Like Adobe, Sun allows their employees to blog. They’ve been doing it for a long time, and their blog portal has over 4,500 bloggers covering over 110,000 posts. Some of their blogs, such as that of Web 2.0 and Web Services Evangelist Arun Gupta, have become quite popular on their own. That’s 110,000 posts of promotional gold for Sun and they know it.

Here are recent statistics of blogs.sun.com:


That's a comment for each post! I'm happy that this blog contibutes it's share.

Sun's "dramatically improved" app server

Here are some quotes from a recent report by Forrester Wave on the "Application Server Platforms"

Among major vendors, Sun Microsystems Inc., has dramatically improved its standing in this year's evaluation of applications servers for service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM) by Forrester Research Inc.

Sun trailed the field in Forrester's 2004 evaluation of application server platforms but emerged as a "strong performer" in this year's evaluation.

Sun's platform grew substantially with its acquisition of SeeBeyond, and the company has spent about a year integrating those products with its Java Enterprise System (ES) modules. The SeeBeyond products, now called the Sun Java Composite Application Platform Suite (CAPS), provide very strong SOA, integration, and business process management (BPM) features relative to the competition.

The analyst firm rate Sun Web server and directory server on a par with what IBM and BEA offer in those categories.

The full report costs $379 but excerpts are available here.

If you want to download any of the above mentioned platforms, they are available at:

GlassFish V2 will be released final in the next few weeks. And the associated product, Sun Java System Application Server 9.1, will be released along with it as well.
