Since I joined Sun Web Server engineering team, this product has gone through couple of name changes - mostly to be in sync with company's business directions. Here is a quick snapshot of the different forms that it took over the years..
Netscape Enterprise Server (3.6, 4.0, 4.1)
-> iPlanet Enterprise Web Server (6.0) ->
-> Sun ONE Web Server 6.1
-> Sun Java System Web Server 6.1, 7.0
-> Sun GlassFish Enterprise Web Server 7
Now, Oracle after its acquisition of Sun, has decided to complete the product naming circle one more time and call us now as "Oracle iPlanet Web Server". So, let us hope this name will stick a little longer than all its predecessors.
