WSJ.com - Sun Expected To Put Application Server Into Open Source

WSJ.com - Sun Expected To Put Application Server Into Open Source: "Sun Microsystems Inc. (SUNW) is expected on Monday to place the software code for its application server into the open-source environment, where outside developers will be able to examine and adapt it.
Already for 18 months, the application server has been free to license. Sun said the source code for the application server - the foundation of the product - will be available Monday, the first day of its JavaOne conference in San Francisco."

I think this has gotten to the point at which it's about as meaningful as CA open-sourcing Ingres, in terms of likely market impact.
