Java and open source

by kai on 27/10/2006

Finally the Java open source movement got another push. Jonathan Schwartz, Sun’s CEO, announced that the Java Platform (the standard edition to be more precise) would be open-sourced within the next 30 to 60 days. That’s very good, although it would probably not make a huge difference in regards to how people use Java right now. But an open-sourcing would allow people to enhance their contribution to a platform and as history shows, a lot of platforms gained strength from converting them into an open-source movement.
