Java.Sun.com: Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition Is Linux-Ready

May 24, 2000, 07:42 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Phillip Birmingham for this link. ]

"The J2EETM platform, version 1.2.1 with the Linux port, is ready for developers and available for download."

"J2EE technology was developed with simplicity in mind. At the core of it is reusable component model that enables simpler, faster, more efficient development. Enterprise JavaBeans technology hides much of the complexity of enterprise "plumbing," or middleware services necessary to run a modern enterprise. JavaServer Pages technology allows rapid development of dynamic Web pages. J2EE Blueprints provide developers with guidelines on how to develop applications based on J2EE technology...."

"Linux wasn't the only enhancement to J2EE technology that came with a strong demand from Sun customers. Developers' interest for J2EE technology is strong and growing fast. The number of downloads of J2EE software now exceeds 140,000, dating from the first release in December 1999 (five months ago as of this writing). In the less than two weeks that J2EE v. 1.2.1 software has been available for Solaris and Microsoft Windows, Sun has logged about 20,000 downloads. By adding support for Linux, Sun expects the number of downloads to increase even more. Many of those evaluating J2EE technology are new to it, so the priority for this release has been to simplify development with J2EE technology by adding the frequently requested support for iterative and incremental development."
