Sun plugs in open-source Java database

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 5:00 am

Sun Microsystems said on Tuesday it is now distributing an open-source Java database within its Java server software products. In addition, Sun said it has created a plug-in which will allow the database to work closely with Sun’s NetBeans open-source development tool.

Earlier this year, Sun began committing engineers to the Apache Derby project, which IBM started with the donation of an embedded Java database. The Sun-supported version of that database is called open Java DB. Sun uses it in the latest version of its Java Enterprise System suite. With NetBeans version 5.0, Sun will include a plug-in that makes it easier to build and deploy Java applications with the open Java DB, Sun said.
