Sun Microsystems' Javasoft unit is piling up the announcements for its Java One Developers? Conference in San Francisco next week.
The subsidiary will use the occasion to point to the growing maturity of the Java language by demonstrating server-side applications built by itself and third party suppliers such as Corel, Bulletproof and Novera Software.
It will also detail plans of how it intends to merge its Neo object request broker (Orb) with its Java-to-Neo bridge. The product will support both the Object Management?s Internet Interorb Protocol (IIOP) and Javasoft?s own Remote Method Invocation (RMI) protocol, the means by which Java applets communicate with each other.
Javasoft also intends to unveil its Java Messaging Standard for undertaking asynchronous messaging and publish-and-subscribe communications, and its Java Studio development tool.
Java Studio enables users to assemble Java applications out of pre-built Java Beans components, but not to create Beans themselves. The tool is written in Java and automatically publishes a Web page to host the completed applications.
* Javasoft plans to release a conversion kit later this year to translate Microsoft Visual Basic code into Java.
