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

Farrell advised users to stay on kenai.com 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 Kenai.com 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.
