Welcome to the next generation FOSS Stack

mango\*


What is Mango\*?

The fruit: Mangoes belong to the genus Mangifera, consisting of numerous species of tropical fruiting trees in the flowering plantAnacardiaceae. The mango is indigenous to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia.[1] Cultivated in many tropical regions and distributed widely in the world, mango is one of the most popularly exploited fruits for food, juice, flavor, fragrance and color. Its leaves are ritually used as floral decorations at weddings and religious ceremonies. source:wikipedia.org

Project mango\* is an initiative to promote the use of Sun's (Free Open Source Software) FOSS stack in the enterprise middleware market. MANGO\* is an acronym which stands for

  • My SQL And
  • Netbeans
  • Glassfish
  • Open\*...(OpenESB or OpenSSO or OpenPortal or OpenSolaris...)

Project mango\* will not create a new product or technology. Its purpose is to demonstrate and illustrate how enterprises can leverage on Sun's FOSS technologies to help them achieve their IT and business goals.


Why Mango\*?

Traditionally when we talk about the FOSS stack, the first thing that comes to mind is the LAMP/SAMP stack. While LAMP/SAMP has been very successful in the largest Internet based businesses such as Google and Facebook, it may not be enough for enterprises looking for advanced middleware features found in commercial J2EE, Portal, SOA and SSO solutions.

MANGO\* can be seen as the next generation FOSS stack or FOSS 2.0 which brings reliable, scalable and open software to the enterprise. Enterprises can pick and choose from Sun's rich offerings of open software to suit their needs. In the next section, we will highlight the differences between MANGO\* and LAMP.
