An Anonymous Reader writes "Seven core developers of the JBoss applicaton server cut their strings with Marc Fleury's company The JBoss Group today and launched their own venture, Core Developers Network. Their open letter to the community can be found at www.coredevelopers.net along with their bios and their "service offerings".
There was a very measured and rational debate about it at www.theserverside.com, and a story written about it at www.theinquirer.net. The JBoss-user and JBoss-dev boards have been extremely quiet about it, but nothing is being censored as far as we can tell.
This just might be the best thing to happen to JBoss in a long time."
