Sun CEO: Java open source in 30-60 days



Sun Microsystem will announce the open-sourcing of the core Java platform in 30 to 60 days, said Sun President/CEO Jonathan Schwartz at the Oracle OpenWorld conference on Wednesday morning.

Java will be offered via an open source format under an OSI-approved (Open Source Initiative) license similar to the one used for open-sourcing of the Solaris OS, he said during a keynote presentation.

Sun officials have talked about Java being offered via open source in stages later this year and into 2007.

hi, came across your site when i done a google of “sun + engineer + kerala”.. but nothing in your blog to suggest u work in sun microsystems…

I am looking for a Keralite couple working in Sun Microsystems, USA.

Only info I know is that: the guy is from Alleppey District in Kerala. He was working in Sun, USA during 2002, 2003 etc… His wife also joined for work in Sun Microsystems after their marriage. Guy should have been in a little senior position there.
May be they are still working in Sun.

Can anything be possibly done to trace them? Any informal association of indians / keralites?

i wrote to my friend in mathrubhumi, kochi, but he said after enquiring with the advt section that they cant put such advts!! If required it can be put as a news, but i am not interested in that.

thanks and regards,
