Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This week carries a new episode in the Sun/Oracle/EU saga: The EU Comission has issued a statement of objections on the acquisition of Sun by Oracle.

Since I am a Sun employee, I will just provide the basic links, no matter how tempting it might be to go beyond that...

• (Nov 9th) EU issues SoO - I've only found indirect references to the SoO, like Sun's K-8 Filing.
• (later that same day...) Oracle reacted with a PR Statement.
• (a bit later...) The DOJ issued their own

WebStack 1.5 - Your (L)AMP Stack
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Sun's LAMP support is assembled from two pieces: the L is from our Linux/GNU Support (see SunSolve entry), while the AMP comes from the GlassFish WebStack, which, in its latest incarnation includes Apache HTTP Server, lighttpd, memcached, MySQL, PHP, Python, Ruby, Squid, Tomcat, GlassFish (v2.1) and Hudson (features).

The inclusion of Hudson is a bit of an opportunistic move (more on that in a bit), the rest comprises a well tested, integrated, optimized, and extended component

MySQL Server binaries: one source to rule them all
Employee_Team +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If you missed Kaj's announcement in the splashing news commotion at the latest MySQL Conference, then you may be interested to get this information again.

There was a piece of news that should be extremely important for all the users. MySQL server binaries used to be split between Enterprise and Community, and they were released with separate schedules. Not anymore. Starting from April 2009, the MySQL Community and Enterprise editions are built from the same code, and they are released with the same frequency.

There were rumors about the

GlassFish and More at MySQL Users Conference

Mon-Thu I'll be attending the MySQL User's Conference here in Santa Clara. The tone of the conference is noticeably different to that of its (even larger) sibling JavaOne in San Francisco, and the topics are very grounded in the practical needs of the Users of the technology. There are many very interesting talks, below is a small selection extracted from my Personal Schedule.

Starting with those related to topics we normally cover here: Several BOFs:

Stésud, GlassFish and MySQL - A Multi-Million Sun Deal
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This morning Sun issued a Press Release (Sun, Reuters) on a multi-million dollar deal with Belgium-based ERP vendor Stésud s.a.. Quoting from there:

Java-based GlassFish was the first piece of the puzzle we identified to meet our stringent new infrastructure requirements. As soon as Sun acquired MySQL, we decided to employ it as our new database rather than Oracle. With Sun behind both GlassFish and MySQL, it was the best open source infrastructure combination for our needs and for our customers' operations.

Welcome Aboard, MySQL!
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Breaking News! MySQL will be part of the Sun family!

MySQL (the M in LAMP) is extremely popular in new "Web 2.0" applications. For example MySQL is #4 at Ohloh.net behind Firefox, Subversion and Apache, and ahead of PHP. Adoption is strong even in the enterprise: 6 out of our 13 Adoption Stories use MySQL.

We are all extremely excited about the possibilities; both for developers and for deployers. We will keep you posted of developments as they happen. Fun times ahead!
