Sun Releases First GPLed Java Source
December 26, 2006 Leave a comment
A quick (belated) follow up to a story I previously covered. Sun has now officially released part of Java under the GPL. phoneME, which has previously been called J2ME, is now available for download with a GPLv2 license. The supported platforms are Linux/ARM, Linux/x86 and Windows/i386. Many seemed to guess that J2SE would be released first, but I'm sure that's coming soon. Once again kudos to Sun for making the decision they did.
Java, Sun, Open Source, GPL, Linux
