Sun goes after Adobe Apollo, Ajax, Silverlight

The dust has hardly settled after Microsoft's unveiling of its Silverlight beta, or Sun Microsystems is making a plunge into the rich internet application market.

Dsc00067 The server vendor on Tuesday will unveil its Java FX technology, providing a fourth way to develop online applications. Sun has a small edge over its competitors, because Java FX tied directly into Java and therefore comes with a army of about 6m developers worldwide.

Dsc00068 Few people expect Microsoft, Adobe or Ajax to disappear just because of this announcement, but the market place certainly just got a bit more competitive.

Below you watch a video with a demonstration of the new technology with Java inventor James Gosling and Sun's software chief Rich Green.

How do we know what they showed is not just a mockup? Do they have any plan to release source codes of the demo very soon?

Posted-by: Fred | 8 May 2007 17:34:16

RE: Fred. Yes, there is code - Sun showed it at the demo where I shot this video and today at JavaOne. Added the picture above for your reference.

The developer tools btw will be coming in the future, and will be open source. No projected launch date yet.

Adobe has a big uphill battle - proprietary code, with proprietary tools, with little/no presence on mobile handsets. I don't see it happening. Good on Sun for totally getting their act in gear. Their new scripting stuff looks great, total gap filler.

Posted-by: Anton Elahui | 9 May 2007 02:59:07

Regarding the comment about Adobe has little/no presense on mobile handsets:

Most device manufacturers in Korea (e.g. Samsung, LG and other smaller companies) are moving to Flash Lite for device UI instead of Java. They're also using Flash UI for other electronics, such as HDTV, navigation systems, home automation systems...etc.

Most new Nokia phones can either run Flash Lite content as standalone applications, or as screensavers and dynamic wallpapers.

Regarding proprietary code and tools: Have you looked at their open source initiatives including Flex framework, ActionScript for Mozilla (Tamarin), AJAX framework, or tools such as Flex Builder?

But the little cheapest wow goldkids knew that it was the wolf, by the rough voice. We will fastgg not open the door, cried they, you are not our mother. She has a soft, pleasant voice, but your voice is rough, you are the wolf.

Then the wolf went World Of Warcraft Goldaway to a shopkeeper and bought himself a great lump of chalk, ate this and made mmogap his voice soft with it.

With its low [URL=]Laptop accessories[/URL] height of maximum 29 millimeters [URL=]Laptop Asus AC Adapter[/URL] and its chic [URL=]Toshiba laptop AC Adapter[/URL] design, the Acer Aspire[URL=]Acer laptop AC Adapter[/URL] 3810T knows how to please [URL=]Compaq laptop keyboard[/URL] at first sight. The inside [URL=]HP laptop AC Adapter[/URL] of the display lid shows[URL=]Liteon laptop AC Adapter[/URL] itself, in opposition, in [URL=]Toshiba laptop keyboard[/URL] a dark and somewhat cheap looking gray. The outer [URL=]Dell laptop keyboard[/URL] sides of the display [URL=]Gateway laptop keyboard[/URL] lid, as well as the surface [URL=]HP laptop keyboard[/URL] around the keyboard present[URL=]Compaq laptop AC Adapter[/URL] themselves in a [URL=]Dell laptop AC Adapter[/URL] chic, matt silver, which[URL=]Delta laptop AC Adapter[/URL] also barely soils. Loyalty [URL=]Dell PA-12 AC Adapter[/URL] to the principal of connection [URL=]Original Gateway PA-1700-02 AC Adapter[/URL] arrangement on the notebook's side edges has also been generally kept upright in the Studio 15. The battery finds its place on the back side, and the display hinge also obstructs a placement of additional ports in this area. The workmanship is very good, as there are barely any[URL=]Dell laptop battery[/URL] sharp edges or uncleanly [URL=]Dell Inspiron 1501 AC Adapter[/URL] worked areas. Everything, including[URL=]HP laptop battery[/URL] the applied [URL=]Dell PA-9 AC Adapter[/URL] materials, looks [URL=]Dell 1503FP LCD AC Adapter[/URL] qualitative and stylish. When the notebook [URL=]Original Toshiba PA3467U-1ACA AC Adapter[/URL] is opened, you [URL=]Dell Inspiron E1505 AC Adapter[/URL] don't see much [URL=]Original Gateway API3AD03 AC Adapter[/URL] of this though. Merely the[URL=]Toshiba laptop battery[/URL] notebook's back side [URL=]Original Gateway 0225C1965 AC Adapter[/URL] turns out a bit [URL=]Original Gateway SADP-65KB AC Adapter[/URL] chunky because [URL=]Apple laptop battery[/URL] of the fairly large battery, in contrast.
