yes, i want to join this "N1 SPS user group petition 2010" to Sun / Oracle.
i've done as many others as well a great deal in automating installation and deployment and this DEFINETLY is a great tool made by people who what they are doing. and besides many good features it is a reliable tool.
for my customers want to have a roadmap for these topics: installation, configuration + deployment.
So I'm expecting to hear from Sun/Oracle much more that just EOL.
I'm still standing to what i said in a success story with my custmer - http://www.sun.com/customers/software/pixelpark.xml

What's needed is at least 5 years of ongoing active Support (including emerging new Platform Versions).
If Sun/Oracle expects their clients to migrate to a new product, they should provide detailed migration information and usable migration tools (covering existing Components and Plans, inheritance, Dependencies and installation history data) to protect the substantial investments existing clients have made in the N1SPS framework.
Of particular interest for my client are the virtual host concept and modeling of dependencies over multiple hosts for application server (Oracle WebLogic) clusters.
I'm not sure if Sun/Oracle did fully understand the potential of N1SPS - especially for managing (their own) Middleware products - when they decided to EOL N1SPS.
