Open Skies, Open Source and Open Portals..
By atul on Aug 04, 2006
Back at the JavaOne 2006 Conference, Sun announced
that it was furthering it's commitment to Open Source by stating that
the Sun Java System Portal Server will be among the next set of
products that will transition from Closed Source to Open Source. This
is part of the overall plan to do so for all of Sun's Software products
portfolio, including middleware.
So today is a big step that shows commitment to delivering on that promise; the first core infrastructure component of the Sun Portal is now out there on java.net --
The Enterprise-class Portlet Container Open Source Project
Check out Deepak's blog articulating exactly what is available today, what are the future plans for the project, and how folks can join and participate in the community.
This is an incremental first step in opening up the entire Sun Portal Platform and moving it to a truly "open development" model. Please stay tuned as the team diligently works on getting the other components out there. We look forward to your participation. And to the sharing and learning..
