Developer Tools Strategy by Oracle+Sun: NetBeans & Hudson to stay!

Hear Ted Farrell, Chief Architect and Senior Vice President talk about Oracle and Sun Java Developer Tools Strategy.

Here is a summary for those who want a quick juice:

  • Productivity With Choice
    • Choose the right tool set for your needs
    • Shared infrastructure across tools with Hudson, Oracle TPC, Subversion. Bugzilla, Maven, etc.
    • NetBeans continues with strong Java focus
    • Combine and integrate the best features across tools
  • More resources for Developers
    • Netbeans.org, java.net, otn.oracle.com
    • More courses/training on Java technologies
    • More conferences around the world
    • Better products from expanded R&D and partner ecosystem
    • Larger combined developer community

Here is a lovely snapshot from the webcast ...

Some more detailed points captured from the webcast ...

  • If you are a NetBeans user today, you'll continue to be a NetBeans user after acquisition.
  • Increase the investment in Hudson, lots of synergy with Team Productivity Center.
  • Discontinue the public interface for kenai.com for now, fits very well with some internal projects. Read more about the future of kenai.com.
  • Want to make the best Java IDE for the Java platform. NetBeans platform is very important to lot of customers.
  • For NetBeans, turn to community for external non-Java like Dynamic Languages. Invest more in the infrastructure and community.
  • netbeans.org unchanged
  • Community participation is key for:
    • NetBeans plug-ins
    • Building apps on NetBeans Platform
    • Emerging, Dynamic Languages
    • Dialog, interaction, lists, docs, events, JUGS, etc
  • No licensing changes
    • Versions of NetBeans <= 6.7 follow Sun policy
    • Versions of NetBeans >= 6.8 follow the Oracle policy (complete details)

The webcast also talks about JavaOne being co-located with Oracle Open World (Se 19-23, 2010) and also expanding to Brazil, Russia, India, and China.

Kenai - High Throughput and Scalable Rails on GlassFish



Kenai (pronounced 'keen-eye') is a fictional character from Disney's Brother Bear series. It's also a river, mountain range, national park, peninsula and a city in the southern coast of Alaska in the United States. But that's got nothing to do (as much as I know) with either Rails or GlassFish.




But Project Kenai was announced last week. It's a developer hub with SCM, issue tracking, forums and similar stuff you need for hosting your open source projects. And it is a Rails application deployed on GlassFish v2. 

Read all about it in an interview with the lead developer Nick Sieger. Fernando gave a great overview (slides here), with excellent tuning tips for Rails on GlassFish, in Rails Conf Europe last week.

Other Rails on GlassFish success stories are described here.

And if you want, enjoy this beautiful video of Kenai National Wildlife Refuge.
