Sun Microsystems today introduced Java 2 Platform Standard Edition (J2SE) 5.0, the most significant upgrade to the Java platform and programming language since its initial release nearly one decade ago.Known as Project Tiger, this updated Java platform offers dramatic ease of development, new application monitoring and management features, a dedicated focus on rich client support for the PC desktop and record-breaking performance.
Sun will launch Netbeans 4.0 Beta version in end of July 2004. According to Sun, some interesting features will be included: Profiler-functions (to check performance and memory problems), some goodies that should help developers develop J2EE and Webservices apps easier. More here and here. There is also an interesting project of Gosling called Jackpot.
Sun’s alliance with Microsoft, which was announced in April, also got a mention. McNealy outlined how the two companies plan to make their products interoperable over the coming years. “All kidding aside, I know we shocked some of you back in April with that announcement, but we are serious about working with Microsoft. The better our products work together, the better it is for all of you.”
