What To Do With Projects on Kenai.com
One of the few negatives in the Oracle announcement last week was the fate of Project Kenai. Today, Ted Farrell wrote an entry in the Kenai blog to give an update on the fate of the project hosting system.
In an effort to get information out to the Kenai community quickly, while trying to manage the integration of our two companies, I think we did a poor job at communicating our plans for Kenai.com to you. I would like to remedy that now. Our strategy is simple. We don't believe it makes sense to continue investing in multiple hosted development sites that are basically doing the same thing. Our plan is to shut down kenai.com and focus our efforts on java.net as the hosted development community. We are in the process of migrating java.net to the kenai technology. This means that any project currently hosted on kenai.com will be able to continue as you are on java.net. We are still working out the technical details, but the goal is to make this migration as seamless as possible for the current kenai.com projects. So in the meantime I suggest that you stay put on kenai.com and let us work through the details and get back to you later this month.
The key thing here is that there's no need to rush your project out to another hosting system - Oracle will make sure that to provide some way to make the migration from Kenai to java.net as painless as possible.
