Sun realigns software around GlassFish

Over the past four years, Sun Microsystems has recast itself as a company focused on open source. With open-source Java, Solaris, NetBeans and application server GlassFish, the company has come up with a product lineup to support that claim. Today, Sun expanded its open-source offerings even further by releasing four GlassFish-focused products based on popular open-source software.

The additions that make up GlassFish Portfolio are priced based on levels of service and support. The first product, the GlassFish Web Stack is a snapshot of Apache Web server, MySQL and PHP that Sun will update and support for US$999 per server per year. That stack, which also includes Java EE, is supported on either Linux or Solaris, and according to Karen Tegan Padir, vice president of Sun's MySQL and Software Infrastructure Group, the stack is designed to allow developers to write once for either operating system...

“You can begin working with Java EE. Where it makes sense to use BPEL for orchestration, you can do that in a very incremental way.”

Those prices are also extended to the three other new GlassFish components from Sun. Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
OASIS sites: OASIS | Cover Pages | | AMQP | CGM Open | eGov | Emergency | IDtrust | LegalXML | Open CSA | OSLC | WS-I
