The Java EE (Enterprise Edition) 5 specification has received unanimous approval from the Java Community Process. Sun will conduct a technical preview of Java EE 5 today in Menlo Park, CA - with the participation of BEA, IBM, JBoss, Oracle, and SAP, all Java licensees.
Incoming SVP, Software - Rich Green - couldn't have asked for a better start to the resumption of his high-flying career at the company that he quit just 2 years ago to join an open-source start-up, Cassatt Corporation. And as for Sun's new CEO, Jonathan Schwartz (pictured), Enterprise Java is always a more "investor-friendly" topic than, say, open-sourcing Java, which tends to beg questions of what the financial model behind such a move would be. So Schwartz must be delighted to have so timely a tidbit to throw to Wall Street.
