The IT community has been waiting for this for quite a while now. Oracle has finally published the code for its open source JavaScript Extension Toolkit (JET) version 2.0.0.

And some say it couldn't come any sooner. If you're interested in looking over the code at GitHub, here's what Oracle says is in the box-- a full JS development toolkit, SPA template-based lifecycle management, two-way binding with a common model layer, single-page app navigation and mobile support.

Open source libraries used with JET include jQuery, the jQuery user interface, Knockout, RequireJS and Hammer.

Overall mobile functions include a library of supported features, native iOS and Android headers, and native themes for iOS, Android and Windows.

Of course, as with any new project, there are bound to be a few slips here and there. Messages posted to the JET forums are currently complaining that its demonstrator template, called yeoman, isn't working.

JET has been published under the Universal Permissive License. It will be interesting to read the various comments from the open source community as to whether or not they like Oracle's new code and how it works for them.
