Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
Overall I think java.net looks like a great start, lots of potential there. I think the site could benefit from better navigation because it really is difficult to figure out where things are and how it all fits together. Other than that, the site looks great and there is lots of interesting content there. I'm still exploring.
The open source project hosting looks really cool and it seems to include the same set of project hosting and management features as provided by SourceForge, plus project wikis and blogs. I wonder if Roller would benefit from java.net. It would be a royal pain to switch over from SourceForge, I'm sure, so I really wonder if it would be worth it. What SourceForge features are missing from java.net? I guess this is just the SourceCast vs. SourceForge question. Would a new home there be worth the relocation expenses?
