Oracle Will Continue With OpenJDK ‘like Sun did’ and Mule 3 is in the Cloud
PLUS, second RC of JPA Diagram Editor 0.5 and first milestone for XQDT 0.8.0.
Oracle Will Continue With OpenJDK “like Sun
Henrik Ståhl of Oracle has blogged about OpenJDK, in an attempt to clear
up some of the questions that have been flying around the Internet
over the past few weeks. He states that Oracle will continue to
work with the OpenJDK codebase and the OpenJDK community “like Sun
did,” and that the JDK will continue to be developed under a GPL
license. He encourages the community to continue getting involved
in the JDK project, and promises that Oracle will shed more light
on this topic at the JavaOne conference, next week.
Mule in the Cloud
Mule 3 is here!
Mule is an open source Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) platform.
This release adds a set of capabilities for enabling developers to
integrate data and applications with SaaS and cloud-based web
applications. This ‘Mule Cloud Connect’ feature includes
out-of-the-box connectors for cloud, SaaS and Web 2.0 providers,
such as Facebook and Amazon Web Services; and native REST support
for publishing JAX-RS and consuming RESTful services. It also
features new capabilities for consuming XML and JSON data
Mule 3 also gets pattern-based configuration for performing
tasks such as publishing Web Services and REST services, and
configuring Web Service proxies.
JPA Diagram Editor 0.5 RC2 Released

this visualisation. The full list of bug fixes, is available online.
