Migrating Solaris content off of Java.net

Alan Coopersmith
Senior Principal Software Engineer

Early last year, Oracle announced it would be shutting down the general project hosting on java.net & kenai.com at the end of April 2017.

We'd been hosting various Solaris content on there since opensolaris.org shut down in 2013, and have worked to move most of it off now. We've requested some redirects be put in place where possible, but they only offer one per subproject, so we can't make all pages redirect to the best spot for that particular content.

If you referenced anything under http://solaris.java.net or its sub projects, here's a guide to where to find that content now:

FOSS Source Code:
The java.net mailing lists were not heavily used, so we've not set up new replacement mailing lists, but suggested discussion migrate to the forums at https://community.oracle.com/community/server_&_storage_systems instead.
Information pages:

And of course, much of it was archived in the Internet Archive for historical reference.

    Any chance of giving us better commit messages? "Merge branch 'hg'" is not very helpful…

    While the hg->git bridge we're using generates those unfortunate merge commits, you should also see the actual commits with real messages between those sync points.
