When will Sun start Open Sourcing Java?...
By pelegri on Oct 29, 2006
The internet is abuzz with speculation on when Sun will start Open Sourcing Java. Jonathan has indicated that it will be Very Soon, but, exactly when? You should know the answer... a year ago, at JavaOne '05!
16 months ago we announced the plan to Open Source the Java EE RI in the GlassFish Community, under an OSI-approved license, the MPL-based CDDL license. Then, this May, we Released Java EE 5 with ever increasing Contributions from the Community.
But what people want to know is when Sun will open source Java SE and Java ME. There, I can't help you; you will have to stay tuned. I'm sure you won't be able to miss the event :-) TheAquarium will certainly report it and we will provide context for our audience.
