I just got word the new Sun Support Center launched. This was one of the first information architecture projects I worked on after returning from leave earlier this year. A couple of things I like about how it turned out:
- It brings /support inline with the templates used for /products, /services, and /solutions.
- There’s a clear indicator differentiating free and for-fee areas of the site.
- Community-support; forums, open-source, etc is prominent – though it didn’t make the crop 😉
Thanks and congrats to everyone on the team. It’s always great to see a project launch.
The redesigned Developers.Sun.com, another of the Sun projects I’ve been involved on, launched today.
Two things I’m real happy with; links to blogs, video, and other community spaces are at the core of the page, and a directory of development resources at the bottom of the page.

I just got word that another of the Sun Developer projects I’ve been working on lauched today:
Now in addition to masthead-level access to Java APIs (you’re welcome), there’s a prominent menu item for all the community venues within the Sun.com domain (blogs, wikis, forums, SDN Share, etc). This change lets the ‘Communities’ menu (at the top of the screen) focus on affinities/projects, rather than needing to accommodate all the communities and all the ways they might publish.
Sun’s new download service launched yesterday – a project I’ve been working on for 18 months or so. Big congrats to Gary Zellerbach and the rest of the project team on this milestone.
If you’d like to compare and contrast, the initial four products (of the 1000s being migrated) are:
