Sun to Add Scripting on Java; McNealy: Java’s Got a Hold on Microsoft

Sun Microsystems is working with numerous industry partners to support the use of scripting languages in its Java platform. Sun and Zend are leading the effort, which will create a way for developers to write Java applications using popular scripting languages like PHP, ECMAscript, and ASP. According to O’Reilly, Sun could boost its number of Java developers by another 3 million in this way. Elsewhere, Sun’s CEO Scott McNealy defended the business merits of his company’s Java effort, saying that, despite disappointing sales of Sun’s own Java software, the effort has helped keep Microsoft at bay.
