Sun Microsystems made two moves in developing an open source environment.

First, Sun is making the Java Enterprise System, Sun N1 Management software, and Sun developer tools available at no cost for both development and deployment. Second, Sun is announcing that it is integrating all of this software along with the Solaris OS into the Solaris Enterprise System.

With this announcement, Sun is creating the no-cost and open alternative to the Windows environment.

“With more than 3.4M Solaris licenses and nearly one million Java Enterprise System subscribers, customers and developers around the world have asked us to take the next logical step – combining the world’s fastest growing open source operating system with the world’s most complete and ready to deploy infrastructure software platform,” said Jonathan Schwartz, President and COO of Sun. “100% of our customers are deploying web infrastructures and asking for relief from onerous licenses and system integration activity. With our announced intent to open source the entirety of our software offerings, every single developer across the world now has access to the most sophisticated platform available for web 1.0, 2.0 and beyond.”
