Found this after Oracle's announcement to end dev. for SunRay and of course, googles announcement killing google code...

Is anyone taking care of this stuff / moving it over to github etc?

I am one of few that are still here, I would be interested to see if there is still anyone who wants to keep this project alive as well.

Hi,

The real issue is not about google closing google code.
SunRay hardware is not on sale anymore, so there is no future for jOpenRay...
except if you find one.

I have two very old Ray 1, which never worked with jOpenRay.  Meanwhile a Raspberry Pi can do much the same, in a more open way.
I keep the Rays as a souvenir from a time where everything seemed possible.

If I remember cirrectly, there is a Java "SunRay" client you could use with jOpenRay on rPi, 
but it seems, that today, the most used protocol is RDP from MS.

Alternatives I tried :

- I mainly use xpra, which is fast and featureful, but unfortunately not
very stable.
- xrdp : the "full" xrdp+custom xserver is fast and supports resize on
reconnect, but has keyboard and other problems. xrdp+vnc (=default
setup on eg Debian) is stable but not so fast and starts a new session
if the client reconnects with a different resolution.
- nx is very good but has become closed source

I had high hopes for Spice as a sunray replacement, but it seems
targetted at outputting full VM's, and also seems not quite as fast as
the initial demos promised.

Regards,
Christophe

Take a look at X2go, it has similar performance of NX.

Does it still work after the security changes to Java? Has anyone considered moving the code to GitHub so that it doesn't get lost?

Hi,

Sure.
"lost"? Who cares really? The hardware is retired from market for years.. the software (I wrote) has no future...

I just got 3 sunray2 and 3 sunray3+ systems and was hoping to use jopenray.....
Of course, I understand that there will not be sound or USB support as there is no interest to develop
new things and absence of the documentation is a huge problem.

I have never used sunray and have never seen it in action, so for me the configuration seems a bit of a mystery
but I thought with the help of this list it can be done....

So, there exist people who care...
