As you might already know, a bundle of Web development oriented tools is available (part of the GlassFish portfolio), called the Web Stack. I have already talked about it here and also here. I will therefore not go much into the details and benefits of using this bundle.
This is thus a quick note to say that the new release (Web Stack1.5) is now available. You can get it here: http://www.sun.com/software/webstack/get.jsp
Web Stack 1.5 ships with the most recent evolutions of the open source releases including latest releases of Apache web server, MySQL 5.1 and more:
Fully relocatable Update Center ips(5) image distribution
Apache HTTP Server 2.2.11
MySQL 5.0.67 and 5.1
Sun Continuous Integration Server 1.312
But it also comes with some brand new pieces such ads the "Web Stack Enterprise Manager" and the " Sun Continuous Integration Server " based on the Hudson open source project. I'm quite eager to test those, so as soon as I've played around with it I will come with a more technical oriented post.
Meanwhile, for more information you can go to the following web site: http://sun.com/webstack
