BlueJ and Greenfoot Go Open Source
By: Admin, 03 Mar 2009
Following many requests from users, the BlueJ Team has announced the opening of the source code of both the BlueJ and Greenfoot systems. Both have been released under the GNU General Public License version 2 with the Classpath Exception, the same license used by the NetBeans IDE.BlueJ is a great way for University students to learn programming and Java. After you have "graduated" from BlueJ, you can use the NetBeans BlueJ plugin to migrate to the NetBeans IDE. Greenfoot is also a tool used to teach java and programming, for high school(and younger!) students. Explore this only if you are not afraid of Greeps!
