Sun Microsystems has moved the online headquarters of its cooperative Jini project from an in-house system to a system built atop CollabNet's SourceCast software, the companies said Monday. Jini is software that allows software and hardware components to discover each other over networks and use each others' services. Sun uses CollabNet to host many collaborative or open-source programming projects at SunSource.net.
The new site houses numerous Jini projects being worked on by Sun and outside members of the Jini community. CollabNet's SourceCast program, which governs access to such projects and to cooperative programming resources such as mailing lists and bug-tracking, competes with VA Software's SourceForge Enterprise Edition.
