Sun and Google to Work in Development Together
Posted on 5-Oct-2005 06:41 | Tags Filed under: News



Sun and Google have signed and agreement that will see the establishment of a relationship to promote and distribute their technologies together. As part of the agreement, Sun will include the Google Toolbar as an option in downloads of the Java Runtime Environment from Java.com, Sun's showcase and portal for Java technology enthusiasts and developers. The new functionality will be available soon.

Users around the Internet were however expecting something new, possibly the firm announcement of a web-based version of OpenOffice, open source productivity suite of office software competing with Microsoft Office. However the announcement only hints on future collaboration between the companies on projects like OpenOffice.org.

"As a leader in free and open source software, Sun has long recognized that network innovation is vital to the evolution of the global economy," said Scott McNealy, chief executive officer, Sun Microsystems. "Working with Google will make our technologies available more broadly, increase options for users, lower barriers, and expand participation worldwide."
