When the community speaks we listen. As a result of your requests, NetBeans is considering adopting a dual license model--CDDL and
GPL v2 with Classpath exception--for the early access release of NetBeans 6.0. What are some of the benefits of a move like this? Aligning NetBeans with major open source projects. Creating a stronger open source Java ecosystem. Please note that GPL v2 with Classpath exception is not intended to replace the current CDDL license. For more information, read Community Manager Bruno Souza's Letter about Dual Licensing NetBeans.

Rails and Java, yes, JRuby is one possible solution. But if you have some large Java system that you want to integrate with, it's unlikely that you're just going to get the jar files to access that system's APIs. More likely is that the system will expose itself as a service, and the service type du jour is REST.
