Sun released the Java HotSpot virtual machine and compiler as free software under the GNU General Public License on November 13, 2006, with a promise that the rest of the JDK (which includes the Java Runtime Environment) would be placed under the GPL by March 2007, qexcept for a few components that Sun does not have the right to publish in source form under the GPL.q According to free-software advocate Richard Stallman, this would end the qJava trap, q the vendor lock-in that he argues applied to Java and programs written in Java. Software entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth called the initial press announcement qA real milestone for the free software community.q Following their promise to release a Java Development Kit (JDK) based almost completely on free and open source code in the first half of 2007, Sun released the complete source...Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
