Crossbow Launch, Talk and BOF at Community One and Java One

Crossbow Launch, Talk and BOF at Community One and Java One

On June 1, 2009, during Community One and Java One in San Francisco, California, Crossbow was formally launched as part of OpenSolaris 2009.06. The morning started with a keynote where John Fowler, EVP of Sun Systems group formally announced OpenSolaris 2009.06 as the beta for next enterprise release of Solaris.Next (Next release after Solaris 10). He and Greg Lavender then went on to show the Crossbow feature and the Virtual Wire demo. Later in the day I did a talk on Crossbow where Nicolas and Kais accompanied me and showed the Crossbow Virtual wire demo in detail. Bill Franklin and some of his cohorts were dressed as Crossbow knights and they charged in the room right after the talk. I think people just got a shock of their life. It was very entertaining.

The launch got lot of visibility and very good press coverage which can be see on the Crossbow News page. The most notable ones were: On June 2, 2009 we held the Crossbow BOF in the evening. Great showing and great support from the Community. So great stuff and a good closure for Phase 1 of the Crossbow project. The team members were pretty happy and relived. Now trying to get the next intermediate phase going so we can complete the story for next enterprise release of Solaris which might or might not be called Solaris11. Key things are more analytics (dlstat/flowstat), some security/anti spoofing features and more usablity etc. More details are being discussed on the Crossbow Discussion page.
