Sun Details Radical Approach to Next Wave of Software Development

10/29/2003 - Speaking to a capacity crowd of more than 2,500 at Sun Tech Days Brazil, Richard Green, senior vice president of developer platforms at Sun Microsystems, Inc., discussed Sun's groundbreaking Java[tm] Studio Enterprise system -- a unified development environment that integrates development tools, runtimes, support and developer services for building,testing, and deploying world class applications. Unveiled last month at SunNetwork 2003, Java Studio Enterprise helps reduce the cost and complexity of network computing, providing an enhanced developer experience through additional access to Sun support and developer information on, Sun's premiere site for developers. In the keynote, Mr. Green expanded on Sun's software direction, strategy, applied technologies and solutions that facilitate developers' ability to develop and deploy systems of software.

"Java Enterprise System and Java Studio Enterprise demonstrate again Java technology's ability to create new markets and business opportunities for developers, vendors and their customers," said Richard Green. "No other technology approaches the power of Java technology in enabling application interoperability and portability across heterogeneous environments. Java plays a central role in Sun's software strategy, and with the Sun Java Enterprise System and the Sun Java Studio Enterprise offering, Sun is enhancing the accessibility of Java technology to the broadest audience, enterprise developers to individual developers -- strengthening the position of Java as the platform of choice for network computing."

This second Sun Tech Days Brazil will also have Sun evangelists presenting on topics, such as, mobility, wireless, security, web services and new applications being developed on Java. Sun will highlight solutions at the conference, including, Centro de Estudos e Sistemas Avanšados do Recife (C.E.S.A.R.), Instituto de Tecnologia de Software (ITS) and Sun ISV partners such as Navita, Summa, Oracle and Apple. Partners will demo content management tools, solution tests, web-services and multimedia on telemedicine projects.
