First Public Access Release of Sun Java Studio Creator Tool

More than 10,000 developers already pre-registered

Sun Microsystems, Inc., has announced the Early Access release of its groundbreaking visual development environment, the Sun Java Studio Creator application development tool. More than 10,000 developers have already signed up for the Early Access release, which will be available on April 8 at www.sun.com/jscreator .

Java Studio Creator is a comprehensive develop/debug/deploy solution out of the box, incorporating the first release of production JavaServer Faces (JSF) technology, providing greater performance and coding efficiency. The product also includes:

  • the Java Enterprise System runtime to allow developers to quickly evaluate applications in pre-production, including the Sun Java System Application Server, Platform Edition;
  • PointBase, an SQL database server (included with the Java System Application Server);
  • the J2SE Platform SDK; and
  • developer aids such as examples, tutorials, JSF visual components, and more.

    The Java Studio Creator tool is entirely based on Java platform and technology standards developed through the Java Community Process (JCP), helping to ensure application portability between deployment environments and development tools. Further, developers can use Java Studio Creator to leverage the advanced services created with Java Studio Enterprise and other enterprise-class tools. And, like all of the Sun Java Studio tools, Java Studio Creator is based on the NetBeans open source platform. With this Early Access release, the Java Studio Creator tool has been moved to NetBeans version 3.6, which adds stronger JavaServer Pages syntax support in the code editor, improved code completion, and an enhanced debugger. With Java and NetBeans as the foundation technologies, the product line enables developers to prototype quickly and easily using the Java Studio Creator tool, then move up to Java Studio Enterprise to extend application functionality.

    Java Studio Creator takes full advantage of new ease-of-use innovations and provides a standards-based environment, freeing developers from the limitations of proprietary languages, technologies and runtimes.

    The Java Studio Creator tool incorporates JavaServer Faces technology, the recently released framework standard also known as Java Specification Request (JSR) 127 in the JCP services. JavaServer Faces technology simplifies development of visual, multi-tier applications which helps to speed coding behind the user interface. Using JavaServer Faces technology, the Java Studio Creator tool supports two-tier Web applications that conform to the Java BluePrints design patterns, accessing databases and Web services behind dynamic HTML interfaces.

    In addition, Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBC) RowSet (JSR 114) technology simplifies and streamlines access to databases. The Java Studio Creator tool's use of this technology boosts productivity by minimizing coding complexity for connecting to databases and performing queries against them.

    Other standards supported in the Java Studio Creator tool include JavaServer Pages, Java XML Pack software and J2EE 1.3 and 1.4 Web container support.

    Sun's tools are designed to help developers be more productive by allowing them to defer specific deployment platform choices. Java Studio Creator is slated to support the Solaris Operating System, Linux and Windows when the tool becomes generally available in Summer 2004. Pricing has not been determined.
