Six vendors are behind a new proposal, launched this week, which will link telephones, computers and other devices to the Internet via software from Sun. IBM, Intel, Lucent Technologies, Nortel and Novell, have all added their names in support of the technology which will broaden the appeal of the Internet to consumer markets.
The JavaTelephony Toolkit, or JavaTel, is based on the Java language, and will link any telephone, networked computer or other peripheral to a Java-based application. It is hoped the alliance will give vendors a standard to conform to, thus speeding up the development of Internet-capable products.
