The saga of Sun Microsystems versus Microsoft on Java compliance rumbles on apace. Sun complained yesterday that while Microsoft fixed some earlier incompatibilities in Windows Java, it has now found another two.
The first flaw is a series of new directives in Microsoft's Java compiler that makes it Windows-dependent and the second concerns new programming keywords.
A Sun spokeswoman said Sun was revealing the problems because it has obligations to the developer community. So there's no question whatsoever of manoeuvring for legal advantage as the two companies prepare to fight in court.
Sun claims that Microsoft is making Windows incompatible in an attempt to sabotage Java, spiking its potential to write once, run anywhere. It has requested an injunction that will force Microsoft to make Windows Java-compatible according to Sun's tests, or to include Sun's Java with Windows.
A hearing is scheduled for early September.
