Oracle has launched the first developer preview of Java Standard Edition 8 for ARM, which includes tools for building JavaFX apps for ARM-based Linux systems such as the Raspberry Pi.
Linux leader Red Hat last week announced the first beta release of its enterprise virtualization 3.1 platform, which will offer improved scalability, storage live migration and new P2V tools when it ships later this year
Microsoft has outlined the main third-party software through which cross-platform attacks Windows, Mac, and Linux computers: old vulnerabilities in Java, Adobe Flash, Adobe PDF applications, and Microsoft Office.
Red Hat announced an upgrade of its Enterprise Linux that offers increased scalability, performance and management of its KVM virtualization as well as performance kicks for Xen. RHEL 5.8, along with the beta of a new Subscription Asset Manager (SAM) tool, were made available on Feb. 21.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1 is now available on general release bringing with it better system reliability, performance, and scalability, the company said on Friday.
RHEL 6 offers greatly enhanced scalability and is well equipped to handle future technological advances. The switch to KVM virtualisation and server subscription tweaks may not be universally popular, but existing Red Hat customers and new Linux converts should still consider it.
Oracle Chairman Larry Ellison opened this week's Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco with details on the Exalogic Elastic Cloud. The system, built on 360 64-bit x86 processor cores, is interconnected with an InfiniBand-based I/O fabric and solid-state storage with Oracle WebLogic Server, other enterprise Java Oracle middleware products and a choice of Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux operating system software.
The biggest challenges for Linux going forward include addressing next gen scalability and networking requirements.Yet there are other social issues facing the Linux kernel community that outweigh any technological concerns, said several top developers at a LinuxCon panel on Tuesday.
The fourth update to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 operating system (RHEL 5.4) features the usual performance and scalability enhancements.
In many enterprise environments we work with a mix of Windows and Linux servers. If you had to build a large, complex enterprise application that runs on Linux, you would typically use Java.
The June 2009 (2009.06) release of OpenSolaris provides a solid Open Source GNOME desktop experience like that of a modern Linux distribution combined with the scalability and stability of UNIX.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.3 became globally available today, with the new enterprise OS featuring virtualisation improvements, support for Intel's Core i7 architecture, and inclusion of the Open Java Development Kit from Sun Microsystems.
Embedded Linux devices have always fascinated me, because besides on the server, it's where I think the Open Source OS is going to make the most impact. From 2002 to 2004, I worked for SHARP as a developer liaison consultant on the very much before its time ZAURUS Linux/Java PDA, so I'm very much familiar with the ins and outs of developing and supporting embedded Linux products.
I recently had a chance to chat with Oracle’s vice president of Linux engineering, Wim Coekaerts, and senior director of product marketing, Monica Kumar, about Oracles virtualization efforts and a bit about the philosophy behind the company's efforts. In summary, Oracle sees virtualization technology as just another tool organizations can use to increase the performance, reliability, scalability, agility and/or manageability of their IT infrastructure.
Sun is to open source the last closed-source parts of Java, a move that should make it possible to fully integrate the software into Linux distributions.
Once every component of Java is GPL-compliant, the software will be able to be fully integrated into Linux distributions such as Ubuntu and Fedora
Sun says it is working hard to make Java completely open source so Linux shops can use it. But is it already too late?
In an interview at the Linux Foundation, Linus Torvalds warned of commercial control of open source. Using Java and OpenSolaris as an example he pointed out that "Sun ends up having rights that nobody else has – even if they then act perfectly and they really behave well, just the fact that they have special rights makes people legitimately feel like they are second class citizens"
On the heels of today's announcement by Google of the Open Handset Alliance, Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz has published a blog headlined Congratulations Google, Red Hat and the Java Community! The blog entry goes onto categorize the initial OHA platform (called Android) as Google's "new Java/Linux phone platform.
