Project Kenai was a collaborative hosting site for free and open source projects, launched by Sun Microsystems and later owned by Oracle. As of May  2017, the Kenai site is closed.[1]

Services[edit]'s services included version controlled source code repositories (Mercurial, Subversion, Git), team wikis, a download area to host documents, an integrated team member IM chat, issue tracking (JIRA, Bugzilla), forums, mailing lists, and webhooks for selected events.

The Kenai portal supported tagging, an advanced site search that enables finding people and project types via a tag cloud and other properties, and a project search that enables developers to find projects. There was also context-sensitive help available on every page.

Similar to a social network, Kenai encouraged members to create a profile page that shows personal tags and listed all projects they followed and participated in. This made it easy to get in contact and work with other developers who had similar interests. Members used their profiles to browse their forum and mailing histories.

IDE integration[edit]

With the release of NetBeans IDE 6.7, it was possible to maintain Kenai projects directly from inside an IDE.

Developers could use the NetBeans IDE to check out source code and commit changes, to navigate between Kenai projects and local sources, and to submit bug reports and patches directly to the integrated issue tracker. The IDE also displayed which project members were currently online.


Project Kenai was built using JRuby, GlassFish V2, and MySQL databases.[2]
