"Sun has announced that they are going to give $3 million to fund open source initiatives for implementing standards that come out of the JCP. Under the new scholarship program, non-profit groups, universities and qualified individuals can apply for scholarships to help defray the costs of Sun's technical support services while undergoing the Java compatibility tests. This seems to be an interesting reversal, since last week McNealy was saying how he felt open source was hurting J2EE. Maybe this is a chance for JBoss to get certified?"
