Developing Kenai - Agility on an OpenSource Enterprise Foundation
By pelegri on Sep 16, 2008
Last week Kenai went beta, with the usual services in a development hub site plus an additional "connected" angle. Our GF CORBA project is already using its Hg repository but another very interesting angle is the technology mix.
Kenai acheived development agility with reliability by using a combination of our scripting (JRuby/Rails) and enterprise (GlassFish v2, MySQL, OpenSolaris) technologies. These combinations are beginning to pop all over and are one of the key targets of GlassFish, using JRuby (see Nick's Blog site), Groovy (see Glenn's GroovyBlogs), or others.
Back to Kenai, check out Tim's Interview with Nick, and some Technical Details on Caching and in Testing/Performance Methodology. Also see Pictures from Austvik, Spotlight from Arun and Lenz's Technology Overview.
