The situation concerning the open source projects previously maintained by Sun Microsystems has been slowly degenerating since the company’s acquisition by Oracle [ORCL], and it would be nice for a better understanding about what is still “what” after this past year of consolidation… especially when it comes to the vast array of Java-related projects.

If you remember Eduardo Pelegri-Llopart, you may recall his involvement with Sun and its various projects. He has a personal blog (he’s a fellow WordPresser!) and he has assembled a list of the open source projects and their current status that may be of interest to you, gentle readers.

I think it would be interesting to track the goings-on with these various projects… several of them have played important roles in the successes of other companies and other projects worldwide, and even spurred on new lines of development inquiry, leading to further innovation.
