Discussing the JRL
Sun has presented the Java Research License as a new and improved license for universities and research. If you've been reading our blogs over the last two weeks you know that the bloggers aren't shy about offering an opinion. I invited a few of them to participate in a discussion of the JRL and collected their thoughts into our lead article in Java Today . I'm hoping that our articles vary both in subject matter and in format. "Exploring the Java Research License" is meant to be the beginning of a conversation. Check out the license by following the link in the article and add your thoughts to the talk back.
In Also Today, Sam Ruby is hosting a discussion on a proposed weblog format called Echo. Read what they've done so far by following the link from "Echo: a new weblog format in progress." We continue to point to Java user groups around the world. This stop is Belium in "BeJUG: a java.net federated site.?
Steve Mallett, the Java Today news editor has gathered the following Java Today News Headlines: "Updated Eclipse toolkit shines", "JFtp 1.32 Release", "Oracle 9i JDeveloper seeks wider following", "RIAA Plans Lawsuits Against File TradersRIAA Plans Lawsuits Against File Traders" and "EJP Tracer 1.0beta3 Release".
Finally, we've had a request from readers who get the RSS feed but don't read it for a day or two. They said that by the time they check out the feed the Java Today page has been changed. We have started to archive the pages after they have been changed. So sometime tomorrow you will be able to find today's page at http://today.java.net/today/archive/index_06262003.html . You can access past issues by changing the address appropriately.
