Java SE Roundup: Farewell 1.4, OpenJDK Winners, JOGL and JMX


In a month where some of you will bid a fond farewell to the JDK 1.4 release (or a sad one ?), its time for a roundup of some recent stuff that's been happening around the JDK.

A couple of days ago, we announced the winners ($$$!) of the OpenJDK Innovators Challenge. Its a highlight of one of the goals of open sourcing Java SE: to make a home for innovation around the JDK codebase, as exemplified by the contestants in the challenge. (Apart from, of course, taking Java SE where it had never gone before.)

Innovation like the JOGL project for example, for accessing hardware accelerated 3D graphics (like this) recently the subject of a good JavaWorld article recently.

Or the JMX work that's happening in OpenJDK. Like JMX Namespaces, geared towards managing distributed systems, have already made it into the JDK 7 workspace.
Comments:

For those with a passion (or requirement to continue to use v1.4.2) please see Java SE for Business v1.4.2 (also 5.0, and 6!).

A some what shameless plug for Java SE for Business, but it's of practical free value to those on Solaris and for a fee on Windows/Linux.

By dividing the living rooms into equal squares, it turns out that for most games, many of the squares contain unused toys that can be safely put away.http://www.watchgy.com/
