In a blog entry posted recently, Rickard Oberg, founder of Senselogic Sweden AB, a software maker based in Orebro, Sweden, and former member of the JBoss team, accused JBoss of bad business practices, dirty tricks and even having an illegitimate license for the JBoss application server software.
In his post titled "The JBoss Issue," Oberg said: "It is with great sadness that it has come to my attention that JBoss Inc. has gone quite insane in how they conduct business. They have canceled the partnerships with a majority of the German service provider companies, sued at least one of them for using the JBoss name, and tried to acquire and use the customer list of said companies."
