Java Sun and General Motors have announced that GM will be building its entire SOA system on JES, which will be the largest single Java deployment ever. This marks both a victory for Sun's new licensing policies, as well as makes Sun's recent acquisition of SeeBeyond pay off. The new agreement will deploy Java's full line of identity management services and development tools, running on Solaris 10.

SOA is a "hot" TLA and means "Service Oriented Architecture". Essentially the goal is to make services within the company more loosely coupled and gain flexibility in the process.

What this means is that GM will be taking current systems as well as any new systems and integrate them using the JES as a foundation.
