7/30/2002 - Sun Microsystems, Inc. today announced the Java[tm] Verification Program for the enterprise( The program verifies applications to help ensure that they can run on any application server based on Java[tm] 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition(J2EE[tm]) technology. The program also helps customers to differentiate product offerings that can run on different J2EE-compatible application servers. As a result, independent software vendors (ISVs) and customers can receive a better return on their investment because their solutions can run in a heterogeneous J2EE technology-based application server environment.

"Customers in today's market have many options for Java technology-based applications and application servers, and they want an added level of assurance that applications can work in a mixed application server environment," said Tracey Stout, vice president,marketing for Java and XML Software at Sun Microsystems, Inc. "The Java Verification program is unique in that it enables developers to continue to differentiate their offerings, while providing customers with a way to compare applications built on different Java technology-based products."

The Java Verification Program for the enterprise tests the portability of enterprise applications across different implementations of J2EE. It leverages the Java Application Verification Kit for the Enterprise(Java AVK Enterprise), a technology provided by Sun that enables developers to test their applications using specific guidelines and rules. ISVs whose product offerings meet the cross-platform criteria specified in the Java AVK for the Enterprise Handbook can receive the Java Verification certification and display the "Java Verified" brand and logo for their certified product offering after completing a licensing agreement. Companies with verified applications also may participate in periodic, Sun-sponsored co-marketing opportunities.

The Java Application Verification Program for the enterprise is supported by various companies within the Java developer community.
