Some Ultimate java.net Projects

java.net seems to be a little bit underestimated. It is actually great platform for opensource projects - and very easy to set-up. You get a SVN or CVS access with mailing lists, project homepage etc. the full infrastructure. However there are already some really interesting java.net projects out there:

I surely forgot to mention some projects - but what's your favourite?

I especially like Glassfish, Hudson and VisualVM. My addition:

- https://truezip.dev.java.net/ (nio.2 can fix this)
- https://com4j.dev.java.net/

Compared to Google Code, or even Sourceforge, java.net is horrible.

I do wish that at least Glassfish could be moved out of there, so that the first impression of new users wouldn't have to be so negative, for no good reason.

The page loads are slow, partly because of the https requirement. Projects have to provide their own solutions for many many things because the default java.net way of doing things like downloads is unacceptable.

Mikael,

so what's your favorite project? I assume glassfish :-).

Google Code is probably faster (I do not understand the https strategy either) - however I'm not sure about sourceforge.net. I maintain several java.net projects (as owner) and it works fine for me - almost no overhead...

thanks,

adam

Hi Adam
Thanks for including Shoal as a cool project. Its very satisfying to know that you like it and it is easy to use and solves an important area of distributed systems.
