The Santa Cruz Operation (SCO) has posted evaluation licenses of its Perkup Java technology on its Web site for free download and said the technology will also be distributed by Sun Microsystems on its forthcoming Sun Solution CD.
SCO claims the offering, which was launched at JavaOne earlier this year (see VNU Newswire, 15 June, 1999), reduces the memory usage of Java server side applications by a factor of ten. It currently only runs on SCO’s Unixware 7 operating system, but support for other platforms is planned in future.
As a result, Ray Anderson, SCO’s senior vice president of new ventures, said at the firm’s SCO Forum user group meeting in Santa Cruz this week, that he was currently investigating how best to sell the cross platform offerings.
He said he was considering open source licensing “for the glory”, licensing it to OEMs or setting up a separate unit to deal with it. A decision will be made by the middle of October.
