"Sun Microsystems has added further Linux support to its Java development environment. At the Linuxworld tradeshow in New York this week, the company announced the immediate availability of Java 2 Platform Micro Edition (J2ME), Connected Device Configuration (CDC) and Foundation profile for Linux."
"CDC is used to develop embedded Java applications for devices such as set-top boxes, in-car computers and home servers that link computers and consumer electronic devices to the internet."
"Sun also plans to extend its distributed resource management (DRM) software, Grid Engine 5.2, to the Linux platform. DRM software is designed to tie together idle computer resources, match them to individual job requirements and deliver network-wide computing power to the desktop."
