Closing this blog

In a couple of weeks, I will be a Oracle employee.  Integration is planned for July, 1st in Belgium and Luxembourg.

As I have the perception that Oracle executives are not as encouraging as Sun was letting employees blog about their work, I decided to move this blog to a private space instead.

No new entries will be posted here.  I will use my personal blog at www.stormacq.com for new posts about the Java (and IT) world.

I guess these entries will stay here for later references.  But, just in case, I also moved all content to my personal web site. 

I am proud for having (modestly) contributed to Sun and Open Source communities and I will continue to do so on www.stormacq.com

Oracle + Kenai : clarifying the message ...

Last week, when publishing a serie of webcasts explaining the Oracle + Sun product strategy, Oracle clearly announced the end of Sun's sponsored source forge Kenai.com.

Today, Oracle sent a very different message to the community and recognized they poorly communicated about this.  To summarize it : current plans are to reuse Kenai.com infrastructure to power another Sun's sponsored source forge : java.net (hosting projects such as GlassFish, OpenSSO and OpenESB amongst others).

Communities and projects currently hosted on Kenai.com will be migrated to Java.net 

Is it really a poorly executed communication ?  Or does Oracle step back due to community feedback ?

Should the later be correct, this is a good sign that Oracle is (very) quickly learning how to deal with the many communities it inherits when acquiring Sun Microsystems.

Oracle + Sun : Java Developer Tools and Communities FAQ

Earlier today, Oracle posted a FAQ answering the most common questions regarding development tools and developer comunities.  It addresses questions about java.net, Kenai, GlassFish, NetBeans, JavaONE etc ...

This complements the previous Java Development tools FAQ posted last week. 

For more details about Oracle+Sun product strategy, you might have a look at the many webcasts available.
