So, What Do You Think of java.net Now? Poll Ends Monday

Posted by editor on June 2, 2011 at 9:16 PM PDT

A few months ago, java.net underwent some pretty major changes: we migrated to a new project infrastructure (Kenai), and we switched to a modernized Web look and feel. The Kenai infrastructure brought many benefits to java.net projects, including the Subversion and Git version control systems, and JIRA issue and project tracking. And, as I wrote about in my last blog post, Sonatype's Nexus Maven service is also now available for java.net projects.

Given a fairly small team, I think we've come a long way in a relatively short time. But, that's just my opinion. What do you think? Our current poll asks that specific question:

Now that you're accustomed to it, what do you think of the new java.net?

We're in the final days of the poll (it will close on Monday), so get your vote in now. Also, feel free to post a comment expressing your view in greater detail.
