Sun Makes Java a Free, Open-Source Platform -

Unclear if the open-source move has any licensing impact on other vendors that rely on Java. 

Sun still intends to sell commercial versions of the Java products included in its open-source scheme, which include its Java Platform Standard Edition and a version for cellphones and similar products called the Java Platform Micro Edition.

Christina Martino, vice president of the open-source and Linux organization at rival Hewlett-Packard Co., said Sun appeared to have finally listened to its developers and Linux partners. "I think if Sun is doing this, the H-P message is 'It's about time,'" she said.
