Java CAPS 6 Released - Press Reactions


Java CAPS 6 was Announced Last Week. It includes the ESB Suite and the Master Data Management Suite (MDM). Several Sun folks have already commented about it, including: Prakash, Jorge, Alexis (very nice, but in french), and Kevin (with PR assessment).

The launch of Java CAPS 6 is important on its own and also because the ESB Suite includes the OpenESB engine and several of its components (including BPEL SE, HTTP BC, Java EE SE, IEP) - see New Beginnings and Differences. Although the release is not yet actually available outside of an EA program, you can find the Documentation online.

Reaction from the press has been positive, including:

Information Week
The Register
Redmond Mag
Application Development Trends

Several of the Java CAPS/OpenESB engineers keep regular blogs and we will start covering them here. MDM is based on Mural and deserves a separate entry/entries.


Could not find anywhere a link for the download of the bits...
How can someone do a review? Bogus?
Close source? Humm...

Hi - Closed/Open Source and Download of the bits are two separate (but somewhat related) issues.

A big chunk of Java CAPS is not open source (don't know the %s, but all the Java CAPS 5.x code is not open source); the open source bits are the OpenESB, Mural, OpenMQ and GlassFish Server. Over time Java CAPS will have more open source bits but I don't expect all of it to be Open Source - just too expensive in process, etc. Similar to how HADB is not open source but it is still available, etc.

The other topic is availability of the bits for d/l. You are right, they are not yet available. To get access to them today you need to sign for the EA program. I'll keep you guys posted when that changes.
