“Sun Microsystems Incorporates Open Java DB Into Java Enterprise System”

Offers Additional Support for the Sun Supported Distribution of the Apache Derby Database with NetBeans IDE 5.0 Plug-In

The latest release of the Sun Java Enterprise System (release 4) now uses the open Java DB as its application-embedded and Java developer database. The open Java DB is incorporated in the Sun Java System Portal Server 7.0 for use in data storage; it is used as well as the development database within all versions of the Sun Java System Application Server, including the open source Project GlassFish.

“The open Java DB is the best database for Java application development, and a great fit for Java developers. And since Sun has made its software portfolio available at no cost, we make it even easier for developers and customers to take advantage of this enhanced environment,” said John Loiacono, executive vice president of Software at Sun.
