Open Source News

There has been quite a bit of open-source news the past week or so.

First, OpenSSO Express was announced at OSCON last week. This provides support for milestone builds from the OpenSSO community to licensees of Access Manager giving even greater flexibility to organizations looking to take advantage of open-source development and innovation. We think this model can apply to Java CAPS and Open ESB as well so let us know what you think!

Second, we announced an Enterprise LAMP Stack for Solaris and Linux, including the open-sourcing of the core components of our Web Server and Web Proxy offerings under the BSD license.

Last, Jonathan blogged about open-source and LinkedIn's use of MySQL. I particularly liked this paragraph:
"I'm seeing this with nearly every customer I meet, the invisible hand of open source - communities of individuals equally devoted to their employers, and to personal and peer productivity. These communities, within companies as well as across industries, are solving problems without having to involve procurement (while religiously adhering to policies surrounding privacy, intellectual property protection and software licensing). They're delivering unquestionable value."
as well as:
"Most progressive CIO's are trying to embrace this trend rather than fight it, figuring out how they can mandate as little as possible, not as much as possible - selecting only the most critical policies and standards to drive efficiency or compliance."
We are in a new open-source world and it is time to embrace it. You can do so by joining any number of our communities whether it is GlassFish, Open ESB, Mural, OpenSSO, OpenDS, OpenSolaris, or others.
