"Just-in-Time Upgrades Possible With Dynamically Downloaded, Intelligent Plug-in Modules."

"Sun Microsystems, Inc. today announced Forte for Java, release 2.0, the latest version of the company's leading cross-platform development environment for building Internet services-based applications. Forte for Java, release 2.0 includes several new plug-in modules that make it easy for Java developers to build data-centric Internet applications."

"The Forte for Java development environment features a modular architecture based on an open source framework (http://www.netbeans.org), supporting entry-level to enterprise-class developers. Users can step up to progressively more powerful features of the product as their needs evolve. The additional features can be dynamically downloaded via the Internet into the development environment. This enables developers to tackle more sophisticated projects using the same environment, leveraging their existing investment. Because the product is built on a common, publicly available code base, users benefit from the continuing enhancements and reliability inherent in an open source model."
