James Gosling Leads Sun's New java.net Community

James Gosling Leads Sun's New java.net Community

(June 12, 2003) - Sun Microsystems, Inc. took advantage of JavaOne to announce http://www.java.net ">java.net, a new community and Web site created to facilitate Java technology collaboration in applied areas of technology and vertical industry solutions. Sponsored by Sun, with editorial resources and technology infrastructure provided by CollabNet, Inc. and O'Reilly & Associates, java.net aims to expand the Java technology portfolio of applications, tools, and services. Leading technology companies, industry associations, universities and research institutions, Java user groups, and individual Java technology enthusiasts will all come together at java.net with industry veterans such as James Gosling, the creator of Java technology, to enhance the developer community and experience.

java.net, an open source development site, will offer a rich array of advanced collaboration tools including project and community source code hosting, mailing lists, forums, blogs (featuring regular participation by James Gosling) and wikis - collaborative hypertext documents authored with a simple markup scheme. java.net also hosts a "Javapedia" - a wiki-based encyclopedia of Java software, terms, luminaries, service providers and more - currently being developed by Java technology enthusiasts.

"I'm very excited about the strength and variety of code coming to java.net, and about the opportunity the new community gives developers to propel Java technology into new markets and new applications," said James Gosling, Sun fellow, senior vice president, Sun Laboratories, and creator of Java technology. "There's a tremendous collective force of innovation and ideas flowing through java.net, and I can't wait to see what it spawns."

Sun Microsystems also announced today that it will open-source millions of lines of code at java.net. The site will offer features including code, tools, and discussion forums for developers who use the Java desktop platform, Java gaming, and Java Web services and XML. The work of existing open source communities will also be part of java.net, including Project JXTA, Jini, and NetBeans.

Sun's move to establish java.net has met with tremendous enthusiasm from a wide spectrum of third-party organizations. The following companies will participate in or have indicated their support for java.net: Borland Software Corp., Compuware Corp., Cysive, DigiSlice Corp., ObjectVenture, Inc., Oracle Corp., Quest Software, Inc., Software AG, Sun Microsystems, Inc., Systinet Corp., and Zero G Software, Inc. Vertical industry groups also play an active role in the java.net community, including OSS/J and JAIN , as well as SIIA, the Software and Information Industry Association.

In concert with the launch of java.net, the Java Research License has been newly simplified to help spur innovation among universities and researchers in particular. java.net and the CollabNet SourceCast software can support the use of any Open Source Initiative (OSI) approved license for projects developing source code. java.net is pre-configured to support the BSD, Apache, SISSL, GPL, LGPL and MPL licenses, in addition to Java source code SCSL. java.net also supports a variety of document licenses.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
Contextual Analytics of various threat data provides a deeper understanding of a given threat and enables identification of unknown threat vectors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Dufour, Head of Security Architecture, IoT, Webroot, Inc., discussed how through the use of Big Data analytics and deep data correlation across different threat types, it is possible to gain a better understanding of where, how and to what level of danger a malicious actor poses to an organization, and to determin...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
