Sun Gives Java Developers a "JumpStart"

Sun Microsystems, Inc. this week announced the release of Java JumpStart, a package designed to increase productivity by giving developers easy access to the latest Java development and deployment technology from Sun.

Java JumpStart is a CD-ROM package of tools that enables developers, vendors and system integrators to design and create 100% Pure Java applets and applications.

The package includes:

  • the latest Java Development Kit (JDK) software
  • the Java Plug-in software
  • online books
  • sample code
  • extensive documentation

Java Plug-in allows developers to deploy applets that utilize the latest capabilities and features of the Java platform, while maintaining the consistency needed to run reliably and consistently in the latest browsers from Netscape and Microsoft.

The Java JumpStart CD provides developers with fast access to over 600 megabytes of Java software and resources. Additionally, the collection features online books from Addison-Wesley, documentation for the Macintosh Runtime for Java, and all of the older versions of the JDK.
