Java Sun Microsystems on Wednesday released the second beta of Java 6, the company's next-generation development language targeted at so-called Web 2.0 programmers. Perhaps most enticing for those new to Java, the update adds a framework for supporting popular scripting languages such as PHP.

Does anybody know if Java v6 will be released under CDDL, GPL or other OpenSource license? I know that Sun promissed opening Java, and I think that Java version 6 could be good time to do it. I'm hopig v6 will be free software.

As far as i know this will not happen for Mustang (JSE 6) release. i guess open sourcing such a huge project takes time and makes a lot of desicions to take. This is IMHO more difficult than open sourcing Solaris for Sun.
But of course, one may ask the old question, what difference does it make while you can see the code and contribute to it today...
