Sun Advances Open Source Strategy at JavaOne

Open Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Becomes a Reality Through Open Source Availability of Java Development Tools, Java Midd

SAN FRANCISCO, JAVAONE (SM) CONFERENCE, May 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sun Microsystems, Inc. , the creator and leading advocate of Java(TM) technology, today announced it is furthering its commitment to open source by delivering a completely open SOA platform with the release of key Java technologies. Sun planned open source contributions include the award-winning Sun Java Studio Creator, market-leading Sun Java System Portal Server, the Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) Engine from the Sun Java Composite Application Platform Suite (Java CAPS) and the NetBeans Enterprise Pack, as well as Sun's Java Message System (JMS)-based message queue and Web Services Interoperability Technology (WSIT).

"This announcement represents the next phase of open sourcing Sun's Java software portfolio," said Rich Green, executive vice president, Software at Sun. "What was started last year with the enterprise Java platform, has now become a complete solution for SOA development through this release of technologies like portal server, the BPEL engine and our development tools."

Sun is releasing the next set of components from the Java Enterprise System as part of its ongoing strategy to open source its entire middleware software stack.

-- Over time Sun will release all components and technologies in Sun Java System Portal Server 7 through the OpenJava Portal project at http://portal.dev.java.net/. Sun will initially create an open source portlet repository followed by the release of its standardized Portlet Container and Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) implementations. -- The first open source release from the SeeBeyond(TM) acquisition, the Java CAPS BPEL Engine, is available as part of the OpenJava ESB Community at: http://java.sun.com/integration/community.jsp. Sun's BPEL Engine automates the orchestration of complex business processes and workflows, spanning web services, systems, people and companies.

Sun is also announcing plans to release its award-winning Sun Java Studio Development Tools as part of the NetBeans.org community.

-- The innovative and highly regarded Java Studio Creator toolset for rapid visual development of standards-based web applications will be made open source later this year. For information on availability, please watch: http://www.netbeans.org/products/creator. -- The NetBeans Enterprise Pack, with code taken from the Java Studio Enterprise product, is available today with full sources on http://www.netbeans.org/products/enterprise. The Enterprise Pack includes a complete package of UML, BPEL-based web services orchestration and advanced XML editing tools.

Building on the momentum from the release of Java Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE) and the Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition, Sun is expanding Project Glassfish(SM) into the OpenJava(TM) EE Community to support the development and evolution of Java technology by including additional Java platform components.

-- Through the OpenJava MQ project, hosted on http://mq.dev.java.net/, developers and end users gain access to an enterprise-class Java Message System (JMS)-based message queue. -- Web Services Interoperability Technology (WSIT), a collection of WS-* implementations, focused on the areas of security, messaging, quality of service and metadata support, to help drive interoperability between Java technology and the .NET framework -- available at: http://wsit.dev.java.net/.

Bill Schmarzo, Tech Chair of "Big Data | Analytics" of upcoming CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York (November 12-13, 2018, New York City) today announced the outline and schedule of the track. "The track has been designed in experience/degree order," said Schmarzo. "So, that folks who attend the entire track can leave the conference with some of the skills necessary to get their work done when they get back to their offices. It actually ties back to some work that I'm doing at the University of San...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages.
