The prototype for the BRIGHT Products sun-powered BELL lamp can last up to 50 hours on a single charge. It has applications in both emerging and established economies.
Java Standard Edition 7 is the first full release since Oracle completed its purchase of Sun in 2010, but developers have reported bugs that can crash virtual machines, corrupt data and cause errors in applications
Oracle pulled off a Sun miracle: An operating profit. Meanwhile, Exadata, database and applications finished the fourth quarter strong.
Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has remade the company via acquisitions. Oracle has acquired a bevy of companies such as Siebel Systems, PeopleSoft, BEA Systems and others to become a significant applications player. Meanwhile, Oracle remains the database leader and displays strength in middleware. Oracle's next frontier: Hardware. The acquisition of Sun Microsystems could position Oracle as "T.J. Watson's IBM" or be a big headache.
Oracle's fiscal third quarter results Thursday will be a tale of moving parts. The company is integrating Sun Microsystems as it aims to keep its applications, database and middleware businesses humming.

Updated: Oracle delivered better-than-expected fiscal second quarter results, touted its applications business vs. SAP and said it expects the European Union to "unconditionally clear the acquisition of Sun in January.
Lew Tucker, vice president and chief technology officer of cloud computing at Sun Microsystems, foresees applications that are entirely self-sufficient. Humans will be able to set boundaries, of course, but will no longer be needed to turn servers, or anything else for that matter, physically on or off.
Lew Tucker, vice president and chief technology officer of cloud computing at Sun Microsystems, foresees applications that are entirely self-sufficient. Humans will be able to set boundaries, of course, but will no longer be needed to turn servers, or anything else for that matter, physically on or off. It is important, he says, that these applications be unified and driven by a compatible set of protocols in order to create a global cloud of clouds.
This is a well-built workstation with quad-core power to spare, although it could do with more storage options.
Sun Microsystems released VirtualBox 3.0 today. One goal of this release is supporting workloads, such as database management systems, some collaborative applications and many web-based applications that rely on multiple processes running simultaneously.
I just heard a speculation that I hope is untrue: that Oracle is looking at using a Windows Java client in lieu of the ill fated 1990s java station to run its applications in mixed Sun/Windows environments. Somebody please tell me it isn't so!
Sun pushes out new versions of Java SE and of JavaFX, its platform for developing rich internet applications, which could underpin a push into new devices
Sun Microsystems on Tuesday demonstrated its Java Store, an outlet to distribute Java and JavaFX applications. With the move, Sun enters the increasingly crowded app storefront market that Apple kicked off.
Since the Oracle acquisition of Sun, there’s been no official word yet on the road map for Star Office. Oracle says it’s vision is to deliver an integrated system from applications to disk, ostensibly a commitment to an OpenOffice.
With Oracle acquiring Sun Microsystems, it also acquires MySQL, the poster child for open-source applications. (Not to mention Solaris, which Sun says is a larger Linux distribution than Red Hat.
If Oracle's acquisition of Sun actually becomes a market reality, it will most certainly change the dynamics of the market for servers, operating systems, development tools, database management systems, applications and, of course, virtualization technology. Let's take a dark view of the possibilities in each area.
OK, OK, we've all heard a gazillion and one things this week about why Nehalem, er the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series, is like, a total breakthrough in terms of energy efficiency. Intel calls the chip its most revolutionary product in the past 15 years (shades of Pentium) and all manner of software companies, including Sun Microsystems, are falling all over themselves to optimize their operating systems or applications for the platform.
There aren't many public benchmarks that allow you to compare an IBM p570 to Sun's T2 series gear - but one that does, a business applications benchmark officiated by SPEC.ORG, shows Sun to have about a 1.67 x speed advantage - while other data suggest a six times price advantage.
The manner in which open source tools are developed lends a level of security assurance to the applications that are built on this model, said Sun Microsystems executives.
If Sun had taken my advice to buy Unify Corporation as a going concern in 2003 they'd have spent less than a hundred million so far, own a big new Sun Ray applications development market, and have been able to hand $900 million of the cash they spent on MySQL directly to shareholders instead.
