9255154 story Sun's Project Darkstar Game Server Platform No More 82 Posted by timothy on Wednesday February 03, 2010 @01:00PM from the dropped-off-the-moving-truck dept. sproketboy writes "Project Darkstar, an open source software platform from Sun labs that simplifies the development of horizontally scalable servers for online games, is being discontinued as of the Oracle acquisition. This project, mentioned a couple of years back on Slashdot, was a unique concept for building an application server specific to on-line gaming. Sadly they were so close at version 0.9.11 (which is still very stable). Hopefully the open source community can get involved and help continue work on this project."
