iPlanet Application Server 6.5 Improves Developer Productivity 10X Across J2EE and Sun ONE Platforms

(Santa Clara, CA) - Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced iPlanet Application Server 6.5, featuring a new application framework offering developers prebuilt Java components based on best design practices that can be easily assembled to form the infrastructure of J2EE applications up to 10 times faster than previously possible. Additional new features in iPlanet Application Server 6.5 enable developers to expose business processes as Web services, enhance services on demand support through tight integration with Sun's Forte(TM) for Java integrated development environment (IDE), and offer a broad range of new tools and resources for services on demand development. With these enhancements, Sun continues to build upon its world-class iPlanet Application Server and now offers developers at all levels of expertise the ability to rapidly create sophisticated enterprise applications that fully leverage the robust capabilities of the J2EE platform.

The new standards-based iPlanet Application Framework, included at no charge with iPlanet Application Server 6.5, provides a prebuilt J2EE foundation that shortens application assembly and deployment time by eliminating the need to recreate the underlying infrastructure for new JSP and servlet-based applications. The iPlanet Application Framework is a proven, multiplatform development environment that has been broadly available through an early access program and has already been successfully implemented in more than 30 mission-critical deployments. Early access customer feedback and internal testing show that development time can be reduced by nearly 100 percent. For example, a sample e-commerce application, which originally required more than 11,000 lines of code, was completed in 750 lines during internal testing using the iPlanet Application Framework.

``Sun is committed to supporting the more than 3 million Java platform developers around the world in their quest to develop the innovative solutions that will drive the next generation of computing,'' said Stuart Wells, vice president of iPlanet products at Sun. ``The introduction of iPlanet Application Server 6.5 and the integrated iPlanet Application Framework provides an optimal combination of products, programs, and support to enable developers at all levels to fully embrace the power of Java technology for the delivery of services on demand.''

iPlanet Application Server 6.5 now includes enhanced Web services capabilities that allow developers to expose business processes as Web services. This new functionality -- combined with the Forte for Java IDE -- provides developers and business analysts an end-to-end development solution that leverages existing applications to enable the construction of composite-based Web services that can be easily adapted to changing business requirements.

iPlanet Application Server 6.5 now includes the iPlanet Message Queue, a robust implementation of the Java Messaging Service (JMS) specification and Message Driven Bean (MDB) development support. The integration of the iPlanet Message Queue, coupled with new developer support for message-driven beans, allows developers to more easily develop and deploy loosely coupled Web services that ensure guaranteed delivery and high performance through the standards-based JMS asynchronous messaging protocol.

New developer resources include sample applications focused on iPlanet Application Server 6.5 interoperability with Web services, CORBA, JMS, and Struts, which contain prebuilt code to enable developers to build new applications more quickly. iPlanet Application Server 6.5 will also be packaged with a complete Web-based training module to speed developer learning and productivity. Additionally, iPlanet is offering new user groups and a Web-based community forum, both designed to help iPlanet Application Server users exchange best practices and enhance individual developer skill sets.
