Open Sourcing Sun Web Stack, Web Server, Web Proxy Server

Today at OSCON Sun announced many things that I think are cool, but two of them have special value to me.



  1.  We
    are open sourcing the core functionality of our Web Server (known
    variously as Sun Java System Web Server, Sun ONE Web Server, iPlanet
    Web Server, Netscape Enterprise Server) and our Web proxy Server (known
    by the same various brands as our Web Server). The code will be under
    the BSD license providing the maximum possible portability of the
    project, and  will bring Sun more fully into the open source HTTP
    server community. This will happen on the OpenSolaris Web Stack
    community sometime in CYQ3 2008.

  2. Sun will be offering
    production support for the \*AMP stack on Solaris, OpenSolaris, and
    various Linux flavors. The Sun Web Stack will be a product of the
    OpenSolaris Web Stack community and a continuation of the work already
    released as Cool Stack. Support wilol be available in CYQ3 2008.


Exciting times around the ol' Web Tier water dispenser.
