Ahead of the completion of its MySQL acquisition, the vendor releases a bundle with the database.
As Sun Microsystems prepares to close its acquisition of MySQL, the GlassFish and MySQL communities are announcing the availability of an optimized bundled release.
The bundle, announced March 25, consists of GlassFish version 2.0 with the MySQL Community Server 5.0 (5.0.51a) and MySQL JDBC (Java Database Connectivity) driver 5.1.6. It is designed to provide developers with popular open-source versions of enterprise Java and the database and give them easy access to the platforms to develop and deploy rich Java and Web applications, Sun officials said.
