BobbyeM71hxwOracle revises plan to shut down Project Kenai

Now, Oracle will enable projects hosted on the soon-to-be-shut Projects Kenai site to be moved to the site, the company said in a revised of what it had said previously.

Last week in a blog posted, Oracle’s Ted Farrell, chief architect and senior vice president for tools and middleware, cited as the destination for projects being moved off of the Project Kenai hosting site that had been set up by newly acquired Sun Microsystems.

According to Farrell, their plan is to shut down and focusing efforts is on as the hosted development community. Farrell also said, we are in the process of migrating to the kenai technology. This means that any project currently hosted on will be able to continue as you are on We are still working out the technical details, but the goal is to make this migration as seamless as possible for the current projects.

Farrell advised users to stay on for now, let Oracle work through details, and wait for the company to report back later this month.

According to the company, Kenai would be shut down by April 2 and projects should be moved by then.

“I think we did a poor job at communicating our plans for to you. I would like to remedy that now. Our strategy is simple. We don’t believe it makes sense to continue investing in multiple hosted development sites that are basically doing the same thing,” Farrell said.
