Site down for maintenance April 27-29

Posted by sonyabarry on April 23, 2012 at 9:42 AM PDT

This is just a quick reminder that we will be offline starting around noon pacific time (7pm UTC) on Friday, April 27, through noon pacific time (7pm UTC) on Monday, May 30. Some pages and site features may still be available intermittently toward the beginning and end of the maintenance window, but should not be relied upon during that time.

This outage will include Java.net, Kenai.com, NetBeans.org, and a few other pages as well.

Hello Sonya,

I was just curious if emails sent to user@java.net during maintenance are affected due to the downtime?

Thanks for your answer.

Hi Nitin,

The systems were completely powered off during the downtime, so any emails sent should have received a bounce notification. Everything should be working correctly now.

Hello Sonya.

Is it possible to include the outage dates on the java.net site "down for maintenance"
page in future? The reason I ask is that I was not aware of the outage before the
weekend, and what I got was "down for maintenance". When I searched (google) for more
information, the links I found pointed to java.net which of course was offline. So I
was (unfortunately) busy working through the weekend and hoping the site would come
online so I could meet my deadline.

I see now (possibly because java.net is up again) lots more information in google
about the outage on sites (other than java.net), but I didn't find this during the
outage.

Regards,
Paul.

Hi Paul,

I apologize for the confusion - it came as a surprise to me too. Unfortunately I have no way to update the splash pages once they go live. I had requested they replace the usual Oracle logo with our Java.net logo, under the assumption that they would include the timing for the outage. I will make this request next time as well.

Thanks Sonya, much appreciated. New site looks good by the way.
