Where _exactly_ were the java.net forums moved to?

Please note these java.net forums are being decommissioned and use the new and improved forums at https://community.oracle.com/community/java.

Haven't been around here for a while, so got surprised by the "decommissioned" forums ;-) Can't find the old java.net forums over at OTN, where exactly should I look?

F.i. the java.net forum was

https://www.java.net/forums/javadesktop/java-desktop-technologies/swinglabs

what's its new location?

Thanks
Jeanette

Hi Jeanette - traffic here died so we marked them read-only. The Desktop space on OTN is here: https://community.oracle.com/community/java/java_desktop

Hi Sonya,

thanks for your quick reply :-)

Though looks like I misunderstood something about the change: the header notice above the old swinglabs forum states that the forums were _moved_ to OTN java space - but couldn't find it anywhere there.

Maybe the project specific forums here were just closed without any move/countinued support over at OTN? And we are supposed to communicate on the more general forums (like swing)?

Would be a pity (low traffic or not, here we had a home ;-) if so ...

What about the project mailing lists, are they still available

Thanks, Jeanette

Sorry for the confusion on that - the forums haven't actually been moved yet. We will be taking them to the new site sometime in early 2015. I've deleted a bunch of junk from the forums that were here - nobody from O was paying attention and nobody from the community was answering questions either. We had months of posts with over 95% of questions unanswered and massive amounts of spam.

Project mailing lists here are still working as usual.
