The http://www.sun.com site will be decommissioned on June 1 of this year.
…according to OTN Garage, an official blog of the System Admin and Developer Community of the Oracle Technology Network. They promise that the content in blogs.sun.com will remain available. I’m not sure they will put redirects in place so that all the thousands of links across the web to blogs.sun.com remain functional.

- The network is reliable
- Latency is zero
- Bandwidth is infinite
- The network is secure
- Topology doesn’t change
- There is one administrator
- Transport cost is zero
- The network is homogeneous
