[Sun provides access worldwide to central resource for building wireless Java applications faster with its wireless web portal, wireless.java.sun.com.]
JavaOne, San Francisco, CA -- Committed to supporting Java(tm) technology developers in the burgeoning wireless application market, Sun Microsystems, Inc. (Nasdaq: SUNW) today highlights its new Wireless Developer Portal, WIRELESS.JAVA.SUN.COM. Exemplary of the Sun Developer Connection(SM) program's commitment to the developer community, the new site is the authoritative, central resource dedicated to helping Java technology developers successfully develop, deploy and make money from wireless Java applications.
As businesses increasingly turn to Java technology as their platform of choice for delivering Web services, WIRELESS.JAVA.SUN.COM will help developers meet this demand with the tools, resources and community support needed to develop compelling, innovative applications for mobile computing. Created by the leaders in authoritative Java developer support, the Java Developer Connection(SM), this new resource supports the individual developer's efforts by providing them with a means to learn, solve problems, grow technically and connect with opportunities in the wireless market.
"WIRELESS.JAVA.SUN.COM will quickly become the home of the wireless developer because it goes beyond technical content to provide strategies and resources developers need to navigate the wireless ecosystem -- from development to provisioning to billing," said Paul Pangaro, senior director of Developer Web Services of Sun Microsystems. "This site will be a boon to millions of Java developers because they will now be able to get great wireless Java technology support from their most trusted source, the Java Developer Connection."
As the first standards-based wireless resource with end-to-end Java solutions, WIRELESS.JAVA.SUN.COM offers an easy way for developers to get started on Java 2 Platform Micro Edition (J2ME) standards and tools. Some of the site's resources include:
-- "Tutorials, case studies and reports to learn from scratch or build on existing knowledge base" -- "Forums to get quick answers to practically any type of programming problem" -- "Code Drop for sharing code among peers" -- "Bug Database to learn the status of bugs and workarounds" -- "RSS compatibility providing access to the News and Highlights page from any wireless device."
