OpenJDK Ports Approved: BSD and Zero-Assembler
The OpenJDK community has announced the approvals (1, 2) of two new projects. The BSD Port project will develop a port of OpenJDK to the BSD family of operating systems, including FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD and MacOS X. And the Zero-Assembler Port, described on yesterday's front page, is a port of OpenJDK that uses no assembler and therefore can trivially be built on any system. Both projects are sponsored by the OpenJDK porters group, and will be moderated by Dalibor Topic.

In a challenging bit of introspection on JDJ, Jay Blanton asks How Can Java Developers Stay Relevant? "With the rapid evolution that Java and open source frameworks have made since the release of J2EE, enterprise Java IT seems to be producing too many Java dinosaurs. Developers, technical managers, or architects who no longer pursue their technical skills don't understand the evolution of JEE in comparison to J2EE, persistence frameworks, IOC frameworks, Web frameworks, or Web 2.0 and its effects on enterprise Java. Yet decisions are made based on out-of-date J2EE experience."
