Riptano Becomes DataStax
Riptano, the company providing support, software and services for users of Cassandra, Apache Cassandra, Cassandra database and Cassandra DB, has changed its name to DataStax. “As we’ve grown – in experience, customers, and employees – we wanted our name to accurately reflect what we are, what we do, and what we stand for. We wanted a name that you could identify with. DataStax is that name,” writes co-founder & CEO Matt Pfeil, on the name-change. DataStax will also announce some new products over the upcoming months, and have already announced a ‘OpsCenter for Cassandra’ management product, which they claim will make Cassandra “easier and more efficient to operate.”

NetBeans Minus JUnit?
NetBeans Platform Architect Jaroslav Tulach has posted on the JUnit message board, seeking a way around a licensing issue with JUnit and NetBeans.
