http://www.howtoforge.com

TYPO3's default search extension called "Indexed Search" is fine for small web sites, but if your web site is bigger (> 500 pages), it is getting very slow.

The TCK Trap

http://skife.org

You want to fork the OpenJDK. If you don’t care about calling it Java, you can, under copyright law and the GPLv2, just cut the release, publish it, and go about your business. The catch is that there are tons of patents all over the JVM, and the GPLv2 does not include any patent protections.

The ASF Resigns From the JCP Executive Committee

https://blogs.apache.org

The Apache Software Foundation concludes that that JCP is not an open specification process - that Java specifications are proprietary technology that must be licensed directly from the spec lead under whatever terms the spec lead chooses; that the commercial concerns of a single entity, Oracle, will continue to seriously interfere with and bias the transparent governance of the ecosystem; that i

Apache Foundation to vote down Java 7, protesting Oracle abuses

http://arstechnica.com

Oracle's decision to block Apache's Harmony project from being recognized as standards-compliant falls afoul of the rules that govern Java standardization and has raised serious questions about the openness of the programming language.

The Java Trap - The empire strikes back or the return of the Jedi?

http://www.szabster.net

After my controversial Droid post, it's time for me to strike back with another hot topic, namely the Java or C# trap for that matter.

The JVM and the .NET CLR are birds of the same feather and they kind of flock together; like it or not.

IBM+Oracle kills Apache Java project Harmony

http://www.jroller.com

Today, IBM took the pragmatic decision to end hostilities over Apache Harmony and move on. This is clearly a good choice for IBM, and probably the best we could hope for Java. It does mean that Apache Harmony is effectively dead.
