By jacki decoster on Sep 07, 2006
During his keynote at Sun Tech Days in Seattle, Rich Green, EVP of Software at Sun announced that Charles Nutter and Thomas Enebo, the chief maintainers of JRuby (Ruby on the JVM) will become Sun employees this month. They'll be working full-time on JRuby and in particular paying attention to developer tools.
Sun believes the Java platform is bigger than just the Java language and we support giving developers a choice. Sun is planning to support multiple languages on the Java platform; plus, we'll be working toward interoperability between the Java platform and other languages.
Charles and Thomas will be helping in these efforts.
