LXer: Oracle says open source has no place in military apps


Published at LXer:

Oracle has popped out a white paper that may well turn some heads, because it contains robust criticism of open source software. Titled “The Department of Defense (DoD) and Open Source Software” and available here as a PDF to those with Oracle accounts or here in Dropbox, the document's premise is that folks in the USA's Department of Defense (DoD) could think it is possible to save money if they “... avoid buying commercial software products simply by starting with open source software and developing their own applications.”

The URL of the whitepaper is very significant:

Code:
http://www.oracle.com/us/products/middleware/cloud-app-foundation/weblogic/dod-and-open-source-software-2012277.pdf
It's in the Weblogic directory. The whitepaper specifically mentions JBoss as an example of open source software. WebLogic and JBoss are competitors. I'd say that's all the context you need to understand this disguised hard-sell for Weblogic.
