In a recent article, both Marc Fleury of JBoss and Bill Roth of BEA are said to be telling the press that CDDL isn't Open Source.
In addition to working on Project GlassFish, as a manager at Sun I get assigned all kinds of fun projects. For the first time ever this year, I was involved in planning the Web and XML track at JavaOne.
Wow, that was fun - we had so many good submissions this year, it was hard to choose, but fun too.
One part wasn't fun - scheduling.
I'm in the Grizzly Tech session, and at the end, they're showing some performance numbers.
For a dynamic content, servlet oriented, non-trivial task, the numbers that they've found show that an all Java NIO implementation will beat out a mixed Java-C implementation.
Despite a last minute change of time, and a change of room, we packed the room to discuss Project GlassFish last night...
I presented a brief overview of our project, along with Carla Mott and Amy Roh. We intend to make our slides available from the GlassFish site after the conference.
The CDDL License has been talked about quite a bit since Sun submitted it to the OSI (the independant body that validates Open Source licenses).
One of the hardest parts of my job at Sun is keeping secrets. Especially when folks start critiquing you.
