Last week I posted about some thinking we're doing about exposing Java SE team processes to the public and wondering what, if any, tools exist to help do this. Essentially the Java SE team has 12+ years experience with the processes we've developed to manage JDK development as a commercial project. We have several committees and levels of decision making including both technical and business...
While getting ready to release the full OpenJDK project (due "in the Spring 2007" as we said at FOSDEM) it's giving us an opportunity to go through the processes and workflows the Java SE team has developed in the 12 or so years this project has existed. Twelve years is a lot of time for an organization to develop processes, gain a lot of experience with those processes, and it is these...
A dozen tips for testing free software is an interesting article about OSS quality. I want to compare this with some ideas we in the OpenJDK Quality Team have for quality of the OpenJDK and commercial JDK releases. I talked a little about these ideas at FOSDEM last month. One of the best ways you can participate in the free and open source software (FOSS) revolution is by helping to test...
In 100% Java Quercus PHP engine running in GlassFish Java EE 5 Application Server... is a big of excellent news. Caucho, the maker of the Resin app server, has developed a pure-Java PHP execution engine. The engine is under the GPL and last fall I'd tested it using the Drupal content management system. Near as I could tell it worked fine, and it seemed that since it's under the GPL one could...
I mentioned in my previous blog entry that I attended the FOSDEM conference last weekend. That meant traveling from Silicon Valley to Brussels. I took the opportunity for travel to make an almost around-the-world trip. The first stop after Brussels is the Sun office in St. Petersburg Russia. Sun, being an international company, has offices all around the world. The Java SE Quality Team has...
Last weekend was FOSDEM 2007 .. it's a rather large meeting, in Europe, of open source developers and others interested in open source. I honestly did not know about this meeting until recently, but I did attend (with other OpenJDK team members) and wow it was a wonderful event. FOSDEM had participation from pretty much every branch of open source software including FreeBSD, OpenBSD, OpenSuse,...
