It's the Big Java Day: Key Java Tech --> Open Source

It's not exactly a surprise, but today's the day: Sun has officially released critical components of the Java platform to open source, including:
  • The Java Software Development Kit (aja the JDK)
  • The Java Platform Micro Edition for embeddable and mobile devices
  • The Java Enterprise Edition reference implementation

It's all under the GPL -- version 2.0, avoiding (for the nonce) the hysteria over GPL 3.0.

How fast do you suppose a Windows Mobile 5.0 edition of J2ME will be hitting the streets?
