The number of licencees shipping Java2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) v1.3-compatible products has grown by nearly 50 per cent since January 2002, Sun Microsystems has claimed.
The company listed 19 vendors offering J2EE v1.3 technology-compatible implementations, including big names such as BEA Systems, Borland, Fujitsu, Hitachi, IBM, Macromedia, NEC, Novell, Oracle, and Sybase.
"We are pleased with the uptake of Java-compatible and Java-verified products as customers ensure they buy 'real' Java," said Mark Bauhaus, vice president of Java Web Services at Sun Microsystems, in a statement.
"We will continue to support Java compatibility as the only way of delivering the true promise of 'Write Once, Run Anywhere'.
"This key feature of Java-compatible/verified products eliminates the risk of vendor lock by offering a standards-based foundation to accomplish platform independence with minimum development costs and maximum return on investment."
The Unix giant added that downloads of the J2EE Reference Implementation have passed 3.5 million.
The J2EE v1.3 Reference Implementation and the beta implementation of the J2EE v1.4 specification can be found here.
