It’s time for me to move to new challenges.
I joined Sun over 20 years ago; since then I’ve worked on many projects, enjoyed Sun’s culture and had a blast during the GlassFish years. The interregnum between the IBM rumor, the Oracle announcement and the Change in Control was way too long, but by February we started integrating the team and the products into Oracle.
In the last 9 months we have announced the GlassFish roadmap, released GlassFish 3.0.1, multiple GlassFish Commercial Patches and multiple 3.1 milestones, moved the GlassFish wiki to a new home and GlassFish.org to a new infrastructure, presented at JavaOne and Oracle OpenWorld and many other conferences, and started talking about GlassFish 3.2 and JavaEE 7.
I am very happy that we have maintained our core principles during the transition: transparency, communication, open source, great community support and production-ready deliverables. Extra thanks to AdamL, SteveH, MikeL, JustinK and many other “Oracle Classic” folks in helping the “Sun Legacy” GlassFish folks settle down.
