Sun Microsystems is aiming to boost Java developments with a Jumpstart CD-Rom that includes the latest Java Development Kit (JDK), Java Plug-in software sample code and documentation.
According to Jonathan Schwartz, product marketing director at Sun's Java Software division: "Java Jumpstart software is the essential technology resource for application developers [using] the Java programming language. It enables them to streamline their efforts to create applets and applications that meet the 100% Pure Java specification and run on Java compatible runtime environments. Jumpstart is a comprehensive and convenient collection of core Java technologies and information."
The plug-in deploys applets that run in Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers. Along with core Java technologies like the JDK, the package includes online books from Addison-Wesley; the Macintosh Runtime for Java documentation; archive versions of JDK; and Jumpstart will download all updates to the JDK 1.1 platform.
The $70 software can be licensed from Sun's ecommerce site at http://java.sun.com/javastore/index.html, or from the Java Software salesforce and channel partners.
