Probably the biggest thing to happen in Sun's history since the opensourcing of the most innovative operating system on the planet, OpenSolaris, Java is being opensourced. Check out Mark Reinhold's (J2SE Chief Engineer) post, James Goslings post about GPLv2, and tune in at 9:30 PST to the webcast. Think about it, you can now use an open source Framework (J2EE), on an open source Operating System (OpenSolaris), with an opensource application server (Glassfish) using an open source database (PostgreSQL) running on an open source processor (Ultrasparc T1). You can of course write your documentation up in an open source WordProcessor (OpenOffice) and write your application in an open source IDE (Netbeans). Now whats that about Sun not "getting" opensource?
