"Every once in a while, I will come across a student in
a class who, no matter how much I try to stress the importance of
participating in the class, will fail to respond and end up doing
poorly in the class. This is especially frustrating when you know
the student has the capability to perform well, and won't do it
"It's this level of frustration I feel lately about Oracle, as I
read R. Tyler Croy's blog yesterday detailing Oracle making stupid
choices about open source again, this time about the Hudson
software project and its relationship with the Java.net
infrastructure and the Java community as a whole. Coming away from
Croy's fairly dispassionate relating of the whole saga, my primary
question for Oracle is, are you guys really this dense?
"In a nutshell, Hudson--a continuous integration platform that
assists building and testing software builds--has long been hosted
on the Java.net site. According to Croy, and quite a few other
developers with projects on Java.net I have spoken to in the past,
the hosting platform basically sucks."
