"Inprise/Borland (Nasdaq: INPR) today announced three key developments in the company's mission to offer the best enterprise software solutions to help companies bring their businesses to the Internet. They include an agreement to license Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) from Sun Microsystems; joining the Executive Committee (EC) of the Java Community Process (JCP); and winning the Java Pro's Reader's Choice Award Best Java IDE, for Inprise/Borland's popular JBuilder product."

"As a member of the Executive Committee and a J2EE licensee, we are excited to strengthen our relationship with Sun," said Dale Fuller, interim president and chief executive officer of Inprise/Borland.
