Oracle re-launches Java community project site

Java.net features new look and tools and has been moved to Oracle's servers

Java.net has been re-launched as the home of Java community projects, featuring a new look and new tools for developers, an Oracle official said on Tuesday.

The site has been moved in-house to Oracle servers while maintaining infrastructure from the Project Kenai projects site, according to Oracle. Projects can be hosted on java.net to take advantage of the community already participating on the site. Java.net will continue to feature blogs, forums, and editorial content along with tools like Mercurial, Git, and Jira.

"The move from CollabNet to the Kenai infrastructure offers more flexibility for developers who want to host or contribute to community projects," said Oracle's Bob Rhubart, manager for the architect community on Oracle Technology Network, in a blog post. "Instead of the large, fixed infrastructure per project (for example, several mailing lists per project), Kenai's a la carte features allow users to take only what they need."

The migration, Rhubart said, was a "huge effort," with more than 1,400 projects migrated and about 30 left to go. "A large part of the migration was a big cleanup of abandoned projects. With the high abandonment rate of open source projects, [there] was a lot to remove. The new java.net site is smaller, faster, and now the percentage of good, current content is much higher."

Oracle last month had cited java.net as the destination for projects being moved off of the Project Kenai hosting site set up by Sun Microsystems. Sun was acquired by Oracle last year. Java.net features projects pertaining to such technologies as the GlassFish application server, the NetBeans IDE, and the Open JDK open source Java implementation.
