Create your own repository for Update Center with build 38

Here we go,

% unzip repo-2.3-b38-sunos-sparc.zip -d /export/charles/repo/

% unzip pkg-toolkit-2.3-b38-sunos-sparc.zip  -d /export/charles/UpdateCenter

% cd /export/charles/UpdateCenter/pkg-toolkit-sunos-sparc

% pkg/bin/pkg.depotd -d /export/charles/repo -p 10022

%  vi .org.opensolaris,pkg/cfg_cache

change to

origin = http://localhost:10022/

% bin/pkg install updatetool
==> This will download updatetool from /export/charles/rep

% bin/updatetool

That's all, then you just need connect to it in Update Center. Thanks Charles for giving us those steps !!

Interested in Java ES Interoperability ?

If you are interested in Java ES Interoperability, check out this wiki: http://wikis.sun.com/display/Interoperability/Java+ES+Interoperability

It's not about G11n, but still very interesting for Java ES. Check out as well some technical tips:

Sun Java Communications Suite 7 released - what's new ?

Sun Java Communications Suite, is a carrier-grade and highly scalable, secure and reliable messaging and collaboration platform.


WHAT'S NEW IN RELEASE 7:

    \* Calendar Server 7 – fully supports the latest CalDAV standard,
      enabling interoperability with other calendaring clients like
      Mac iCal and Mozilla Lightning, and offers native calendar
      synchronization with mobile devices that support CalDAV,
      including the Apple iPhone.
    \* Indexing and Search Service 1 – provides real-time indexing and
      search of messaging content, including attachments in a wide
      variety of data types such as PDF, Microsoft Office, OpenOffice,
      and popular image formats.
    \* Messaging Server 7 Update 3 – delivers a highly scalable, secure
      and high-performance messaging platform that supports leading
      operating environments and now adds Red Hat 5.
    \* Instant Messaging 8 – offers a scalable, standards-compliant
      instant messaging and presence platform that supports IM in
      mobile devices and interoperability with other IM networks,
      including AOL, Yahoo and MSN.
    \* Sun Convergence 1 Update 3 – features a rich Web client for the

      other Web services. This update of Convergence enables fast
      searches of email attachments using the new Indexing and Search
      Service, provides access to external POP email, supports all
      leading browsers and adds Internet Explorer 8.


What was done on the G11n side:

Simple: we tested everything ! Most of the products had a few UI changes like Instant Messaging 8 or Messaging Server 7 Update 3, so we did only the necessary testing there. One thing we really focused one: Sun Convergence 1 Update 3 ! This product was really tested deeply, focusing on the new functionalities, checking if our existing translations did not cause problem with the new UI design, etc... So on top of enjoying this new Sun Java Communications Suite 7 release, enjoy it localized !

Update Center notifier: how to launch it in the desired language.

Some interesting comment from Update Center bug  1802. It indicates how Update Center's notifier works in term of language.


The notifier can be started in several ways:

1) At login (inherits login locale)
2) By updatetool (it is started in the background a few minutes after updatetool
is launched) (inherits updatetool's locale)
3) Manually via updatetool --notifier  (inherits the shell's locale)

You can use updatetool -n --shutdown to stop all running instances of the
notifier.

GlassFish translations: From Ogino-san on GlassFish G11n alias

I found this message clear and explicit, so just in case you missed it and you are interested:


If you are interested in localized version of GF v3, and following is \*not\* the language you speak, please consider reading a bit about CTI below.

German, Spanish, French, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified and Traditional Chinese
# These are Sun supported locales and be handled by Sun this time.
# Note that pt_BR is added this time!

CTI (\*1) is an easy-to-use web ui that can be used to translate software messages. We had community localization program (\*2) last May-Jun and got quite amount of translation contributed through CTI. That was based on Early Access builds and this time, the project is set up based on CF files targeting final release. Quite few messages have been updated/added since EA. So people participated last time, we look forward to work with you again. People interested, but haven't participated before, we look forward to add your languages.

We will basically follow the same EA contribution steps (\*3). If you are interested, or have any questions please let g11n@glassfish.dev.java.net know and also refer to my blog (\*4).

Interested in GlassFish contribution? Come and join FishCAT! - by Helena

You probably guessed it is not a new animal species (although it might look pretty cool ;-)), but what is it then? Well, this CAT thing is simply an abbreviation that stands for GlassFish Community Acceptance Testing, i.e. a community Beta testing program. Its main goal is to provide GlassFish community with an opportunity to significantly influence the quality of GlassFish as well as to get early feedback on its stability and usability. This FishCAT program for GlassFish v3 will start in about one week.  Joining is as easy as filling out an online application form; applications are accepted until Wed 9/23. More information can be found here or here, it is also recommended to subscribe the quality@glassfish.dev.java.net mailing list. G11n team is working to proved as well some multi-language build, so that some i18n (internationalization) and l10n (localization) testing are possible as well. FishCAT is looking forward to hearing from you! :-)

CTI's Survey !



CTI has just launched a survey to gather feedbacks from users: what you like, don't like, what you want to see, etc... It is a 14 questions survey, ~10mins, straightforward, simple. Even if you are not familiar with CTI, you can still fill it, it helps the CTI guys to know which kind of people (beginners, advanced) are having interest in this tool. Moreover, there are 20 Globalization T-shirts to win !

It's available from the main page of the CTI tool or directly at: http://survey.sunvirtuallab.com/limesurvey/index.php?sid=92616〈=en

See as well http://blogs.sun.com/cti/ or http://blogs.sun.com/cti/entry/cti_tool_survey for more details.

The survey will be closed on Sep, 16th, so still 8 days to go !

European Commission needs more time to examinate Oracle acquisition of Sun

Here are some fresh news regarding Sun acquisition by Oracle:

The European Commission has decided to seek more information regarding Oracle's acquisition of Sun Microsystems by conducting a Phase Two inquiry. The U.S. Department of Justice approved Oracle's proposed acquisition of Sun Microsystems without conditions and terminated the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act on August 20, 2009. Sun's stockholders approved the transaction on July 16, 2009. Closing of the transaction is subject to certain conditions, including clearance by the European Commission.

Uninstallting WebStack 1.5

WebStack 1.5 does not have so far any uninstaller.

Testing it regularly, I needed to be able to quickly delete my current version and install the new one, so I kept the command that does that:

rpm -e sun-rrdtool sun-php52-pgsql sun-wsbase sun-php52-suhosin sun-apache22-sed sun-apache22-jk sun-wsadmin-base sun-apache22 sun-mysql51 sun-php52-mysql sun-jcollectd sun-collectd sun-php52-idn sun-php52-xdebug sun-apache22-perl sun-memcached sun-mysql51lib sun-php52 sun-python26 sun-apache22-security2 sun-apache22-fcgid sun-php52-memcache sun-php52-tcpwrap sun-wsadmin sun-php52-apc sun-squid sun-lighttpd14

 Just wanted to share it in case some of you need it as well :)
