Red Hat and Hyperic Launch an New Open Source Project

By John | February 14, 2008

A few weeks back, I did my first ever press briefing with Hyperic. Blogging is a strange gig, and it brings you to unexpected places. Anyway, I had fun, but  I really don’t like the “embargo” thing. I guess that I am too binary. Just tell me what I can say and what I can’t say, and please don’t add a third dimension of “when” to the equation. I have a hard enough time remembering when to pick up my kids from school, let alone worrying when I can talk about a press release. The pesky PR person pinged me to let you all know that today Hyperic and Red Hat announced a new open source project called RHQ. Matt Asay , as always, does a really good job explaining the back story here if you are interested.

I took a look at some of the code in the project, and there are some good examples. It looks like most of the plug-ins are in Java, but there is some good example code for working with JMX that could be useful (if you go for that sort of thing). As JBOSS increases its market presentation, this joint project can only mean good things for Hyperic and gang.

Here is the press release.
