"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."
