Sun Microsystems has launched version six of its Java Standard Edition platform, which supports the integration of Java technology with other programming languages.

The Java SE 6 software includes a new framework and developer APIs to allow developers to mix Java technology with dynamically typed languages, such as PHP, Python, Ruby and JavaScript.

The package also includes a full web services client stack and supports a range of web services specifications, including JAX-WS 2.0, JAXB 2.0, STAX and JAXP.

Java SE 6 includes expanded tools for diagnosing, managing and monitoring applications and tool interface updates for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and the Java Platform Debugger Architecture (JPDA).

The software also includes a new layout manager component, based on the NetBeans GUI Builder (formerly codenamed Matisse). Java SE 6 has been designed to provide enhanced support for the Windows Vista operating system.

Sun also announced version 5.5 of its NetBeans integrated development environment, which is available for download alongside Java SE 6.
