Oracle to roll out new Java platforms in summer 2013

BS Reporter  |  Chennai/ Hyderabad 

Database software maker Oracle, which had completed the acquisition of Sun Microsystems, including the Java computer programming language and all of its related technology in 2010, is lining up cloud-enabled Java platforms for summer 2013, according to Anil Gaur, vice-president (software development) – and GlassFish Server), Corporation.

“Cloud is making developers restless and all the enterprise developers are expecting cloud solutions from IT. Java’s interest in cloud is pretty high,” he told Business Standard on the sidelines of JavaOne 2012 in Hyderabad on Thursday.

Stating that Jave EE (enterprise edition) 6 is the fastest-adopted platform, both by developers and vendors, and witnesses 10 million downloads of EE6 every year, Gaur said Java EE7, the next generation of Java EE, a platform with the main focus on running applications on private or public clouds, was under way and will be shipped by the middle of next year.

The company, which has nine million Java developers worldwide and counting, has also embarked on Project Avatar, which aims to enable hybrid applications where HTML-based UIs (use interfaces) share content between Java clients and servers both in data centres and in the cloud.

“We are coming up with a thin-server architecture where initially you download a large file (application) and then work offline too. Project Avatar will be rolled out around the same time frame,” Gaur said.

According to Nandini Ramani, vice-president (Java client and mobile platforms), Java is active in the mobile space and is still there with its updated APIs (application programming interfaces). “We have aligned the embedded releases with Java. The embedded market will evolve and our target is to get ahead of the curve,” she said.
