Weekly Builds for OpenDS Now Available

OpenDS Logo

The OpenDS team is quietly delivering. Their Initial Launch was met mostly with positive responses ([1], [2]) with some exceptions ([3], [4]). This week's addition are Weekly Builds, which is exactly in the right direction to encourage participation.

The team's main blog is here; recent entries include the Introduction to OpenDS, an Overview of LDAP, Java and Performance, New Features in OpenDS.

Which GlassFish Build to Use...

GlassFish Mashup

Life does not end after FCS (first customer ship), so we are already creating builds for the next release. We handle this the usual way: create a branch for the release that is being stabilized, and let normal development happen in the next release. Unfortunately the naming for the builds is confusing some developers.

Carla explains the situation briefly, while Sahoo goes into more detail. The bottom line is that our build naming convention needs to be fixed and that should happen very soon. Life before JavaOne is a bit hectic, so thanks for your patience...
