Just Another Java Open Source Story (JAJOSS)

This entry is a compilation of resources that you should read before you take a stand on whether Java should be open source or not. Do share your comments and suggestions on the matter.

Should Java be made open sourced has been a talking point for
quite some time now. There are strong arguments presented by both sides
to the discussion but we surely aren’t any closer to an actual
decision. Companies other than Sun can keep talking about making Java
open source but end of it the decision lies with Sun.

The point has been debated for many years and a million blogs and stories have covered the topic. This is just another one 🙂

    Entreprenuership should be taught and developed, Mr.Kalam argued. ? Each year 10 million educated people are pumped into society. They come out of colleges and schools with ?I can do that? confidence. We have to help them to become entrepreneurs. Then they generate employment. Small entrepreneurs are important. And it is easy to produce them, he said. (http://www.greatandhra.com/harivillu/kalam_andhra.html)

    So what’s your position?

    You should also have linked to the recent settlement between Kodak and Sun. Where would Java be in that case if it had been open source?
