Got Webstack?

Did anyone else notice that the Sun Webstack appears to have quietly disappeared from download-ability? 1.5 was released in the summer of 2009, and now it appears to be quite the maze of links leading nowhere.

I can find wikis and articles, but the links all lead to a general page and searches on oracle.com lead nowhere. Sure would be nice if they'd at least posted a "so long and thanks for all the fish" notice.

Webstack, webstack, where art thou, webstack?

I'm also looking for the Glassfish webstack. It looks like Oracle dropped it, and encourage people use Oracle Web Tier instead.

I'm also miss webstack.

Unfortunately Webstack was basically cancelled by Oracle for Solaris 10/Linux:

Webstack 1.6 is available on edelivery. AFAIK, there won't be additional versions- definitely a loss IMO.
