Java to ship on Dell and HP PCs

Sun Microsystems has signed agreements with Hewlett-Packard and Dell Computer to distribute Sun’s Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on desktop personal computers sold by the two companies.

HP will ship the JRE on Windows PCs by the third quarter of 2003. Dell has agreed to ship the JRE with Linux and Windows PCs, although no shipping date was given.

"We're doing our best to make sure that Java is absolutely everywhere," said Sun vice president and general manager of Java software Rich Green, in a keynote speech at the JavaOne conference in San Francisco.

Sun has yet to sign a similar deal with IBM.
