Sun Does GPL For Java

Sun Microsystems is expected to start releasing some of Java's code under the GPL (GNU Public License v2). This move should allow a greater number of Linux distributions to ship with Java after it has become an open-source project. This is certainly some great news especially for Java programmers. All of the Java source-code should be available by March of 2007. Some information can be read at ZDNet and Lycos. Share your thoughts on this at the Phoronix Forums.

Java Going Open-Source

As was anticipated, today at the start of JavaOne, Jonathan Schwartz has stated that the source-code to Java will be RELEASED. This source-code will hopefully create Java as an independent entity of Sun Microsystems, in the event the company goes under or other circumstances arise. No word yet on when or how the code will be released. More information on Sun's promise is here.

Open-Source Java?

Many speculations have been flying around the Internet in regards to Sun Microsystems potentially open-sourcing Java. While we likely won't hear a yea or nay until JavaOne, there has been an open-letter from a former Sun CEO to the new Sun CEO -- Johnathan Schwartz. In this letter, the push is made to open-source Java, including the Java Virtual Machine. If Java were open-source, the point was made that it could be more competitive with Microsoft's .NET. The open-source Java situation will certainly be an interesting subject matter at JavaOne Conference 2006, which runs from May 16 to 19 in San Francisco CA. The letter can be found at ZDNet.
