Mango* - King of FOSS Offerings

Posted by arungupta on September 2, 2008 at 5:55 AM PDT

If there is one thing that I terribly miss after moving to this
country, that would be the variety of href="">Mangoes
in India. I've been asked at the United States Customs if I'm importing
any mangoes. The fruit's flavor, fragrance and color is just great so I
don't blame them at all. There is even href=",_Delhi">International
Mango Festival conducted every year since 1987 in Delhi. The
festival features more than 550 varieties for visitors to view and

I can talk at lengths about the fruit Mango but this entry is about
Mango*. So what is it ?

is an initiative to promote the use of Sun's (Free Open Source
Software) FOSS stack in the enterprise middleware market. Mango* is an
acronym which stands for

    or OpenSSO or OpenPortal or OpenSolaris...)

It's not a new prodcut or technology but a packaging of Sun's FOSS
offerings that brings reliable, scalable and open software to the
enterprise. The main purpose is  to demonstrate and illustrate
how enterprises achieve their IT and business goals using Sun's FOSS

This is a nice write about someone from India who misses his favorite fruit the mango. He recalls the different varieties of the mango fruit when he was at Delhi before going in to the US. This sure does whet the appetite to bite into a juicy mango fruit and savor the irresistible taste of the Indian Alphonso, the king of mangoes. Those who have relished this will naturally get hooked on! - Mango Pulp Manufacturers

I have posted my mango* install & config guide on the Sun Appliances wiki:

Well I live in mango heaven (Quito) and I love to eat mangos with lemon & hot sauce * My SQL And * Netbeans * Glassfish * OpenSolaris This should be the phrase that catches on like LAMP!

Oh Im leaving in heaven then, When I was little, i used climb mango tree. Well may be I should post some mango here too. But first let me test Sun mango.. ;)

Haven't tried out Sun's Mango, but I agree with you on the edible mano part. The ones we get in the states are kind of bad. Almost like calling Taco Bell authentic mexican food.

lol. I mean sister.

What a disappointment ;). After reading the summary I thought you did somehow manage to import ripe mango. I ate real mango only once, my sistem bring a few with her when she travelled to Asia. I bought mango here in Europe, but they are under-ripe, not fit for human consumption.

Glassfish pre-configured JavaDB is perfect for testing and development... is it possible to have a pre-configured DataSource for MySql as well ?

For small applications, may I use JavaDB in production, or I should install a MySql Data Source for production?
