"Sun Microsystems and Inprise on Thursday will announce plans to jointly develop a version of the Java 2 Platform for Linux, sources close to the companies said. The cooperative effort demonstrates that both companies believe Linux is rapidly becoming a legitimate operating system in the enterprise."

"The proposed version would enable developers to develop and deploy Java applications significantly faster for Linux-based servers. It would also simplify the process of moving existing Java-based applications to Linux, officials from the two companies said."

"Both companies will say the deal represents a natural progression in their relationship, and demonstrates Inprise's continued commitment to developing for Linux, according to sources. Officials are expected to say they believe the deal represents a major effort towards maintaining open and standards-based network architectures where the Linux OS and Java 2 play an integral role."
