SAN FRANCISCO, JAVAONE (SM) CONFERENCE, May 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sun Microsystems, Inc. , the creator and leading advocate of Java(TM) technology, today announced it is furthering its commitment to open source by delivering a completely open SOA platform with the release of key Java technologies.

"This announcement represents the next phase of open sourcing Sun's Java software portfolio," said Rich Green, executive vice president, Software at Sun.
