"The Sun-Netscape Alliance... today announced the iPlanet... Application Server 6.0 software, providing a rich application development platform based on the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) standard and fulfilling the Alliance's promise to deliver a single next-generation application server for companies deploying large, transactional Web sites to compete in today's exploding Net Economy."

"Anticipating J2EE certification later this month, the iPlanet Application Server 6.0 software offers all the benefits of the open Java technology standard combined with a heritage of market-leading deployment capabilities and backwards compatibility for Sun NetDynamics(TM) and Netscape Application Server applications. The product is designed to provide seamless migration for applications that support core technologies of J2EE and also integrates key features of Sun and Netscape applications and tools already in use by customers such as AXA Sun Life, Cable and Wireless HKT, E*TRADE, First Union, France Telecom, National Discount Brokers, Oakley, PayMyBills.com, and Visteon Automotive Systems."

"We've envisioned success designing with the J2EE specification and look forward to deploying the iPlanet Application Server," said Bob Whyte, chief technology officer of PayMyBills.com. "The Alliance's value-added approach to the specification promises to provide exactly what we've been looking for -- a solution that meets our e-commerce requirements for reliability and performance that is optimized for the emerging Java standards."
