NetBeans v6.0 Beta 2 is now dual-licensed: GPL and CDDL



Talk about making things happen in internet time -- the NetBeans Community on Monday released its latest build of the NetBeans 6.0 Beta 2 and announced the widely popular Java-based IDE is now dual-licensed under GPL v2 with ClassPath exception, in addition to the CDDL license.

The community believes that releasing NetBeans under the GPL license will help align NetBeans with the Linux community and major open source projects. By making it easier to share NetBeans code and innovations with other projects, it will promote a stronger open source Java ecosystem, as discussed by Bruno Souza, the NetBeans Community Manager and one of our favorite Brazilian Java Evangelist.

And if that isn't enough excitement for the day, we've got more. The NetBeans plug-in module for DTrace is also available. The NetBeans DTrace plug-in module is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for running DTrace scripts. The DTrace plug-in module works with Sun Studio 12 IDE, NetBeans IDE 5.5.1 and NetBeans 6.0 Beta 2.

Sun releases Content Delivery Server source code under CDDL

Sun, which has already contributed more code to open source projects than any other company, is releasing its Sun Java System Content Delivery Server to the open source community. Content Delivery Server is a mobile content delivery and management platform that helps mobile operators launch and sustain content services more cost-effectively. The source code is available today under the Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL) at http://opencds.dev.java.net.

Sharing the Content Delivery Server with the open source community helps expand the product's footprint to a wider market. Increased access to the Content Delivery Server means more systems integrators, OEMs and independent software vendors will engage on the Content Delivery Server platform, increasing the available options. Sun will continue to be a key driver of Content Delivery Server development, product roadmap, marketing and community-building. Access to the source code enables customers and systems integrators to enhance and customize OpenCDS to meet their needs.

Recently, Sun announced upgrades for CDS that enable leading operators worldwide to grow their service portfolios and increase revenue by making it easier to add, manage and bill for virtually all types of wireless content through a new and unique distributed download architecture. (See http://www.sun.com/smi/Press/sunflash/2006-12/sunflash.20061204.3.xml) Sun also recently announced new CDS customers Telecom New Zealand and Telefonica Moviles de Argentina, who have chosen the Sun CDS solutions running on the Sun Solaris operating system to quickly bring new services and content to market.
