Java is being improved to provide better support for web services and XML and offer a user interface borrowing features from the Longhorn version of Windows.

The upcoming Java Enterprise Edition 5 release will feature simplified web services support and more support of web services standards. A beta of version 5 is due in the autumn, with the final release planned for the first quarter of 2006.

Java Enterprise Edition 5 will enable the development of a web service using only a few lines of code.

The forthcoming Java Standard Edition 6 platform, code-named Mustang, is due in 2006. This will feature XML and web services enhancements, along with desktop improvements.

The development language will feature a web services client stack to enable clients to easily connect to web services, and include a revamped XML stack and a new scripting engine.

Sun said the look and feel of the system would also be developed to match Microsoft's Longhorn, platform, also due next year.
