Sun Microsystems has closed the Sunscript business unit that was only opened in April, following the departure of Eric Schmidt, former chief technology officer. Schmidt, who left Sun in April to head up Novell, was Sunscript's main advocate, but the language, which is more widely known as Tcl/Tk, had no real support among the rest of high level Sun management. The unit, which had its own profit and loss account, has now moved back into Sun Labs as a project team and Sunscript products will be given away free, not sold as was previously the intention. The team is now integrating Sunscript with Java for use as a glue between Java and objects written in other languages.
