Sun Microsystems Unveils Java Technology-Enabled

350 Companies Demonstrate Java Technology-based Products and Devices at JavaOne(SM) 1999 JavaOne Developer Conference Sun Microsystems, Inc. (Nasdaq: SUNW) this week is giving more than 17,000 software developers a detailed look at the next generation of Java(TM) technology, the most popular, network-savvy platform for application development and deployment. Capping a highly significant year for the Java platform, JavaOne, Sun's 1999 Worldwide Java Developer Conference(SM), will feature applications from more than 350 companies, introduce new enterprise technologies and showcase a wide array of consumer electronic devices utilizing the Java technologies. Sun introduced the Java platform in 1995 as a way to create applications that would run on any computer, regardless of the underlying operating system. Today, the Java platform is the foundation for enterprises competing in the new network economy. "The Java platform is about the business of innovation, and this year's JavaOne Conference demonstrates this in spades," said Scott McNealy, Chief Executive Officer of Sun Microsystems, Inc. "Over the past four years, we've worked closely with our partners to build on the principles of Java technology by creating a platform that's functionally complete, stable, secure and fast. It's now the cornerstone for enterprise application development, and companies around the world are using it to get ahead in the net economy." The widespread use of Java technology -- from small consumer devices to enterprise data centers -- has revolutionized the way businesses use the Internet to gain competitive advantage. By introducing a new end-to-end blueprint of the Java 2 platform, Sun is making it simpler for software developers, service providers and device manufacturers to target specific market opportunities. In addition to the architectural news, a number of consumer electronics companies are demonstrating digital devices utilizing the Java 2 platform: * 3Com announced its commitment to tightly integrate Sun's Java technology with the industry-leading Palm Computing platform. * NTT DoCoMo is demonstrating the first prototypes of its i- mode wireless phones and services, powered by the newly announced Java KVM virtual machine. * Motorola is demonstrating a new, Java technology-enabled PageWriter, a two-way pager. JavaOne 1999 keynote speakers include Scott McNealy, Sun's Chief Executive Officer; Dr. Alan Baratz, President of Sun's Software Products and Platforms Division; James Gosling, inventor of the Java platform; Bill Joy, Sun's Chief Scientist; Greg Papadopoulos, Sun's Chief Technology Officer; John Gage, Director of Sun's Science office; Danny Hillis, Vice President of the Walt Disney Company and Larry Ellison, Chief Executive Officer of Oracle Corporation.
