OSS

Sun Microsystems at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco this week, announced it would open source its online game server platform, called "Project Darkstar," which is written entirely in Java technology.

The source code for Project Darkstar will become available under a GPL (general public license) in the coming months, the company stated, promising to release further details at its JavaOne Conference in May.

Sun also unveiled Darkstar Playground, a venue in which developers can gain access to server resources to develop their online games. It will be live at JavaOne.

"By open sourcing Darkstar technology, we will help enable the widest possible market for online game developers and remove their burden of having to build enterprise-grade server solutions, leaving them to do what they do best -- build great game experiences," Chris Melissinos, chief gaming officer at the company, stated.
