Happy Anniversary - Open Source Java!


Today, November 13, 2007 marks the 1 year anniversary of open source Java technology & the formation of the OpenJDK community (for the Java SE implementation) and the Mobile & Embedded community (for the Java ME implementation).

A lot has happen since Sun set Java "free" (under GPL v2 license!) and released the initial source code last year.

Rich Sands  looks back at the past year within the Open JDK community.

Terrance Barr & Roger Brinkley comment on the Mobile & Embedded community.

I was also lucky enough to get some video footage of Mark Reinhold, Ray Gans & John Mulner giving their thoughts on the 1 year anniversary.
