We are all waiting too see Java logo on our IPhones. I do too. But... there are obstacles and restrictions. The main point is that Sun really wants see Java on the IPhone. Community wants to see it. Large companies want to be able to create Java based applications. This is a huge market. However there will be probably no Java if Apple doesn't want it to be. That's what I've heard from a vice president of Sun Microsystems. The good news is that Sun wants to be ready with Java for the IPhone in case of everything will go well. So I assume there are investigations and probably some development going on already. And of ofcourse lawers are working hard too .
So what about Apple? Apple will be able to make money with Java. There is a huge market and big money. Enterprise solutions, regular applications and etc. Everybody will benefit from it. We'll see quite soon, what will happen.
Eric Klein, vice president of Sun Microsystems, Java Marketing anounced that Sun will be developing a Java VM for the Apple's IPhone. This JVM will be based on Java Micro Edition and will allow IPhone to launch thousands of existing and new Java applications. "Once our JVM is on the phone, we anticipate that a large number of Java applications would run on the phone," Klein said. It took 24 hours for Sun to analyze the licence and information Apple had provided with IPhone's SDK. Release date is planned some time after June 2008.
