Java.net Editorial Home Page URL Changes

Posted by editor on November 8, 2010 at 7:25 PM PST

If you entered http://java.net into your browser today, you may have been surprised to find yourself viewing a page that looks a lot like the Project Kenai home page. And, you might be wondering what's happened to the traditional java.net home page that includes the latest Editor's blog, Java Today, featured java.net Weblogs and Forum entries, Spotlights, and our latest poll.

Now you must go to http://www.java.net or http://home.java.net to get to the traditional java.net home page (where you'll find my latest blog and all the other content listed above).

And this is just a couple of weeks before Devoxx, another major Java conference literally miles away...

1997 lawsuit filed by Sun Microsystems against Microsoft. This
