Sun Microsystems is close (possibly today) to releasing the Java source code
under a Linux-friendly license. The Sun-hosted Java.net Web site will provide
access to Java Platform Micro Edition (Java ME) software for mobile phones and
Java Platform Standard Edition (Java SE) software for desktop applications. Via
News.com, "This is a
milestone for the whole industry," said Rich Green, Sun's executive vice
president of software.. "Not only are we making an influential and widely used
software platform for the Web available under an open-source license, it also
underscores Sun's commitment to changing the whole industry model for how
software is enhanced and developed."
More information is available at Java.net.
