JavaOne 2006 day 1: Sun expected to announce open sourcing many of it’s Java based tools and apps

Stopping short of open sourcing the language itself, which I think is a good thing, Sun are today expected to announce that they will be open sourcing many of it’s development tools and applications.

Announcements are expected for:

  • a Java EE 5 Application Server (based on GlassFish? – this would seem logical since GlassFish is already open source)
  • Sun Java System Portal 7 – an integration server
  • Java Studio Enterprise (their enterprise flavor of their IDE, based on NetBeans)
  • message queing software
  • Web Services Interoperability Technology
