LinuxWorld: Sun ports JDK 1.2 to Linux

The move makes Linux a viable option for makers of EJB-compliant
application servers.

“Sun is missing the boat. They don’t have the scripting, the
server-side support,” said J.P. Morgenthal, president of NC.Focus.
“I think they will have a competitive story to Visual Basic and
Active Server Pages using Java scripting, JavaBeans, and Java
Server Pages. But they don’t have it right now.”

Consequently, at the Java Business Expo in December, Sun will
announce plans to fill in its tools strategy.
