Web Stack 1.5 is available

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
lighttpd 1.4.21
memcached 1.2.5
MySQL 5.0.67 and 5.1
PHP 5.2.9
Python 2.6
Ruby 1.8.7
Squid 2.7.STABLE5
Tomcat 6.0.18
GlassFish v2.1
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.

NetBeans and Drupal Enhanced Support

To start the New Year some of my colleagues have just completed additional work enhancing the Netbeans support for Drupal. For more information on the enhancements take a look at Sujit Nair's blog. This is a great example of some of the work that a range of people in Sun's ISV-E engineering organisation are doing with Drupal and the Drupal Community. Another good source of information is the work done by Eric Reid. So, if you are interested in learning  more about  how you can exploit the work that we have been doing with Drupal these are two good places to start.

Drupal is only one of an extensive range of open source technologies and communities that Sun is working with to help deliver value. These are clearly in addition to the huge range of open source activities that Sun is undertaking directly. To get a sense of some of the other areas that we are focusing on in the Web infrastructure and solutions area, take a look at our new ISV Community site which contains resources that are directly relevant to ISVs.

If you have questions which you want to direct to our ISV focused commercial and technical resources why not raise those using the Web Community forum which we have started as part of the community activity?
