Apache, Sun battle over Sun license

Author: JT Smith

Slashdotters discuss several links, including a vnunet.com article, that discuss the disagreements between Apache developers and Sun over the Sun Java Community License. From vnunet: "The Apache Software Foundation's battle with Sun Microsystems stepped up a gear last week as the open source community struggled to loosen Sun's cast iron grip on the Java platform.

The group, which represents open source developers, issued a statement last week which called on Sun to discontinue licences prohibiting Java compatible open source implementations, and make compatibility testing more accessible.
