Richard Monson-Haefel, known to many for being involved in many Java JSR projects (including EJB3.0) has taken a new analyst job which means he has to have a neutral view on technology, and as a result has cut his involvement with the Java world.
JBoss have finally managed to work with Sun and gain certification on the latest release of their app server, JBoss Application Server 4.0.
Sun have started a ‘Java-powered’ logo advertising promotion that was launched this month at JavaOne.
The promotion aims to include a Java logo on devices that include a Java JVM inside, which already includes millions of cell phones shipped world-wide. Sun has the opportunity to cash in on the success of J2ME shipped with mobile phones if they can pitch this right – Java is already out there in the consumer market, the tough part now is increasing consumer awareness to cash in on the popularity.
