"Sun Microsystems plans to release the source code for its
Java software development tool in a bid to make the Java
programming language more popular."
"Sun executives said today the company will soon release the
code for its 'Forte for Java, Community Edition,' a free,
easy-to-use tool that offers software developers a graphical user
interface for designing Java applications."
"Sun has recently embraced the open-source movement, which
allows anyone to see and modify the original programming
blueprints, or "source code," of a program. With varying degrees of
openness, the company has made several of its products open source,
including its Solaris operating system; the Java programming
language and its widely used Network File System, networking
software for sharing files."
