Future of Java in spotlight
This week's Sun JavaOne user conference in San Francisco will focus on security and identity management using Java.
Sun will also attempt to entice Java developers to use Sun's Java Studio Enterprise software by giving away workstations based on AMD's Opteron processor. The promotion will be available to developers who sign up for a three-year subscription to the software, priced at £825 a year.
The conference will host a debate on whether Sun should release the Java technology under an open source licence. Speakers include Java creator James Gosling and Stanford University professor Lawrence Lessig.
