Sun Microsystems' Solaris 9 Operating Environment: First to Offer Built-in J2EE Application Server and Identity Management Found

Sun Microsystems, Inc. is now shipping the Solaris 9 Operating Environment (Solaris OE). Solaris 9 OE delivers several significant firsts for the industry. The most important of these is the integration of the new Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) 1.3 compliant Sun ONE Application Server 7, Platform Edition with a single server development and deployment license for use on Sun systems. Solaris 9 OE also integrates the Sun ONE Directory Server, the industry-leading foundation for open, scalable identity management. The integration of these Sun ONE middleware elements into Solaris 9 OE makes it easier to build and deploy application and Web services based on Java, XML, and SOAP technologies, while helping customers to save on acquisition, integration, testing, support, and management costs.

"Solaris 9 OE is out in front and pulling away," said Scott McNealy, chairman and CEO of Sun Microsystems. "Solaris 9 OE provides users with the most reliable, scalable, secure, and manageable operating environment today, and now we're converging it with critical areas of Java? technology and XML middleware to extend the platform for even faster deployment. All still done in an open, standards-based world. As the UNIX market evolves and continues to expand through Solaris, Linux, and the Mac OS X, we see a massive uptake in demand for the kind of operating environment partners can build on with confidence. Solaris 9 OE just helped extend that confidence even further."

"By integrating the Sun ONE Application Server and other important middleware into Solaris 9 OE, Sun provides customers with a more complete platform for developing and running applications in a J2EE environment," said Shawn Willett, principal analyst at Current Analysis. "The inclusion of application server middleware into Solaris 9 OE can help lower the cost of operations as companies develop Web services. However, Sun customers will still be able to work with third party applications and middleware with Solaris 9 OE, as the company is avoiding proprietary lock-ins."

Solaris 9 OE includes more than 300 improvements that enrich the meaning of the modern services platform. These improvements help save time and money and improve security, performance, and compatibility.

Sun is also providing a comprehensive suite of services to help customers upgrade or migrate to the new Solaris 9 Operating Environment including technical consulting to assess opportunities for mainframe migration and server consolidation. Solaris 9 OE is available immediately across the Sun server line and is planned to be available across Sun workstation product lines in calendar year 2003.
