Java Goes Open Source

Some moments are really special; and some dates, requires special mentioning. A few years from now, 13th November 2006, would be looked upon as a day, which marked the beginning of a new era in the evolution of a programming language, whose inception dates back to the early '90s by a few engineers @ Sun. What could that programming language do to the world of Internet is a fact well-known to the public. And I would only be boring my dearest audience if I repeat the success stories of the wonderful programming language called Java. I would also be failing in my duty if I don't tell you now what I am expected to say.

Today, on 13th November 2006, Sun Opens its very own Java Programming Language. Well, what more can I say other than to request you, very humbly, to watch the live event coverage of the same on Sun Website at 9:30 PST. I realize that I am not the person to authoritatively talk about this decision, but this gentleman certainly is. I can also guarantee that there would be a lot many people in here, who would express themselves on this decision of making Java open.

And if Java is made open, where does Joe Parlang's creation stand? Well, even that goes open source!!

And finally before we part, let us also hear one more time to what the creator of Java has to say to the Java Community. Let's read his open letter to the Java Community and then wait in anticipation to see what effect this decision would have in the years to follow.
