F3, Phobos and Shoal

Of course the “Java
Libre
” news from Sun is this week’s big news..
I would also like to point to three new code drops:
Shoal :
JXTA for GlassFish
Clustering. Overview here.
F3
: quite elegant Swing scripting (call it a DSL if you want), an
animation library and much more all about to be open sourced.
Phobos :
server-side scripting with development
and debug
tools
and REST
& Atom support.

Phobos is being noticed in
several
places.
I’m very curious to see how it plays out.
Actually, all of the abovecould be combined. Kinda fun having Swing on
the client and JavaScript on the server….
