Sun's Developer Vision
The vision of Network Computing is predicated on developers building services to the network that can reach everywhere, through every device, on virtually every platform. Membership in the Sun Developer Network provides developers with the advanced support and resources to build these services for both internal and external applications. Sun's developer-driven software strategy translates into sharing with developers -- in both commercial markets and open source markets, including Linux -- a common focus on innovation, open standards and strong communities. A commitment to shared innovation enables Sun to offer developers:

Sun's unique approach is to drive a partnership with the individual developer that allows technology to evolve and create markets and standards rather than locking developers into proprietary platforms. Through shared innovation and community collaboration with Sun, the Sun Developer Network helps developers evolve the world of technology to meet their changing needs. The Sun Developer Network unifies developer program access across all of Sun's key developer technologies and products, and brings together the tools, technology and expertise that individual developers need to make the right choices for their business.
