Source Initiative OSI - Jobs
In the last section of "The Cathedral and the Bazaar", Eric S. Raymond argued that the bazaar development mode may be so much more effective than the cathedral mode that open-source software may eventually drive closed, proprietary software almost completely out of the market.
The OSI doesn't have a position either for or against intellectual property rights in software. ESR, one of our co-founders, supports them; others have different positions. We believe that the contention over this issue that has polarized the open-source community in the past is largely pointless, because the best arguments for open-source are grounded in economics and engineering.
Open source creates U.S. manufacturing jobs CEO Eren Niazi said the fully-automated facility can turn out 1,000 systems a day. They can do reference designs, and turn around a customer in days instead of weeks. Open source software is used for the systems' internals, and most wind up being loaded with LAMP stacks, used as enterprise Web servers.
The speedy delivery, which enterprise customers need, is why this plant is in Sunnyvale. "We?re doing rapid deployment," he said. "Our customers can?t wait for this stuff to come from overseas."
While former VA Linux head Larry Augustin blamed the dot-bomb for VA Linux' failed move to open source hardware Niazi, who has hired some of Augustin's old team, said outsourcing may have also had a role to play. "They lost some control when they outsourced. We don?t outsource our
Job Satisfaction and Open Source
This seems to be a basic human thing: watch babies for a while and you'll notice that they smile when solving what must be, for them, very difficult problems - like how to roll over or get mommy's attention.
On the hardware side of computing the biggest technical challenges facing current designers come down to balancing processing power against input power and heat generation. Thus both of the solutions we're now seeing enter the market, Sun's CMT/SPARC and IBM's cell, represent attempts to address these issues in more or less elegant
ways. Both solutions ultimately rely on a simple proposition: to reduce input power while maintaining processing power, "just" reduce the total distance you need to push data internally. Thus IBM's cell hardware combines a grid on a chip, reducing the distance between machines in a traditional grid to the distances between components in a microprocessor -i.e. from feet to nanometers, with a control protocol intended, like Sun's similar openGRID framework, to reduce internal data transfers.
Open Source Job Schedulers in Java
On some projects, you find you need to execute certain jobs and tasks at an exactly specified time or at regular time intervals. In this article we will see how Java developers can implement such a requirement using the standard Java Timer API, and then we will focus on Quartz, an open source library for those who need some extra features in their scheduling
system. Let's, for a start, go through few common use cases that will help you recognize situations when you could need this kind of behavior. Then we will see how to find the best solution according to your functional request.
Almost every business application has some reports and statistics that are needed by its users. You can hardly imagine such a system without these reports, because the common purpose for someone to invest in such a system is the ability to collect a large amount of data and see it in a manner that can help with further business planning. A problem that can exist in creating these reports is the large amount of data that needs to be processed, which would generally put a heavy load on the database system.
What Business Can Learn from Open Source
Lately companies have been paying more attention to open source. Ten years ago there seemed a real danger Microsoft would extend its monopoly to servers. It seems safe to say now that open source has prevented
that. A recent survey found 52% of companies are replacing Windows servers with Linux
servers. But the biggest thing business has to learn from open source is not about Linux or Firefox, but about the forces that produced them. Ultimately these will affect a lot more than what software you use.

Welcome to the OpenCms Project OpenCms is a professional level Open Source Website Content Management System. OpenCms helps to create and manage complex websites easily without knowledge of html. An integrated WYSIWYG editor with a user interface similar to well known office applications helps the user creating the contents, while a sophisticated template engine enforces a site-wide corporate layout. As true Open Source software, OpenCms is completely free of licensing costs.
OpenCms is based on Java and XML technology. Therefore it fits perfectly into almost any existing modern IT infrastructure. OpenCms runs in a "full open source" environment (e.g. Linux, Apache, Tomcat, MySQL) as well as on commercial components (e.g. Windows NT, IIS, BEA Weblogic, Oracle DB).
Quartz Job Scheduling Framework
If your Java applications depend on tasks that must be performed at specific times or if your systems have recurring maintenance jobs that could be automated, then you need Quartz: the first full-featured, open source job scheduling framework.
Quartz Job Scheduling Framework reveals how to make the most of Quartz with virtually any Java EE or Java SE application, from the smallest standalone program to the largest e-commerce application. Best-selling author Chuck Cavaness shows developers and architects how to integrate Quartz with leading open source Java frameworks, including Hibernate and
Struts. Using practical examples, Cavaness illuminates everything from basic job scheduling to the use of Quartz in clustered environments and enterprise workflow applications. To jumpstart your own Quartz projects, he also presents a full chapter of ?cookbook? sample code.
Open Source Opens Doors You want to demonstrate your drive? Your dedication? Then think about contributing to an open source software project as a way to stand out from the pack of run-of-the-mill
techies. Open source projects ranging from the Apache Web server to the Mozilla browser depend on techies to contribute code, write documentation and perform other tasks. With more companies choosing to use open source products, participation in an open source project is likely to garner attention from hiring managers savvy about the open source
movement. You don't contribute to an open source project if you're a casual user," says JT Smith, director of technology at WDI, the development division of Brunswick New Technologies. "It shows that you have dedication and experience. It means you're pretty hardcore."
Which could translate into the sort of attention from an employer a technical job seeker craves.

Open source promises more business functions
A new generation of high-value open-source business applications is coming, according to a leading analyst.
Speaking ahead of next week?s Gartner Open Source Summit in Barcelona, the research firm?s Nikos Drakos predicted a new wave of programs beyond the relatively mature open-source operating system, development tool and database sectors.
These will include collaboration, portal, content management and business intelligence tools, said Drakos. ?Open source is moving beyond infrastructure,? he added. ?There?s already a lot of fairly mature and popular products in middleware, operating system and programming tools and on top of that there?s various bits and pieces in process repositories, search engines, database drivers and templating tools. It takes a lot less effort to think about portals and content management systems and there is now a basis on which high-value tools can be
All About Open Source
Open source usually refers to a program in which the source code is available to the general public for use and/or modification from its original design free of charge. Open source code is typically created as a collaborative effort in which programmers improve upon the code and share the changes within the community.
The rationale for this movement is that a larger group of programmers not concerned with proprietary ownership or financial gain will produce a more
useful and bug-free product for everyone to use. The concept relies on peer review to find and eliminate bugs in the program code, a process that commercially developed and packaged programs do not employ.
Free and Non-Free Software
Free software is software that comes with permission for anyone to use, copy, and distribute, either verbatim or with modifications, either gratis or for a fee. In particular, this means that source code must be available. ``If it's not source, it's not software.'' This is a simplified definition; see also the full definition.
If a program is free, then it can potentially be included in a free operating system such as GNU, or free versions of the GNU/Linux system.
There are many different ways to make a program free-many questions of detail, which could be decided in more than one way and still make the program free. Some of the possible variations are described below. For information on specific free software

Open source geeks Apple pushed back, saying that as eclectic as my readership is, the subset I described is only a ?fraction of a fraction? of the geeks (Apple?s word) who are my regular readers. Issues that matter to so few, and to me, shouldn?t be projected to a larger audience in 48-point type. I go on the defensive whenever a vendor suggests that any portion of my readership is an underclass because of its
numbers. Before consummate wealth and success, Steve Jobs was the poster boy for that misunderstood fraction-of-a-fraction to which my erstwhile handlers referred. Jobs was odd man out for being inventive, curious, tenacious, fearless, opinionated, and insatiable. These ingredients make an innovator. Jobs built a company, then a culture, and then a product line that reflected the future he was certain would unfold, and he was determined to get there first.

Application Server Using a DataSource In the J2EE realm, data sources are Java objects that represent physical data storage systems such as relational databases. It is via javax.sql.DataSource objects that a J2EE application can retrieve underlying connections to the databases being represented by the DataSource object. The layer of abstraction represented by a DataSource object allows for a J2EE container to pool connections to the database on behalf of J2EE applications running in the J2EE container. Furthermore, DataSource objects allow a J2EE application to abstract itself from the database it is interacting with. Accordingly, one can more easily migrate from one database flavor to another.
