Sun Microsystems' telecommunications partners in Asia will announce deeper use of Sun's Java software in mobile phones and back-end networks next week at the first JavaOne conference in Japan, a Sun executive said.
NEC, Fujitsu and J-Phone Communications, as well as Sun's longtime Java partner NTT DoCoMo, will announce expanded use of Java in their telecommunications networks, said Rich Green, general manager of Sun's Java software group.
Java made initial progress in mobile phones and in servers, but now companies are expanding to take advantage of the technology's network-communication abilities to link different computing devices, Green said.
"What you'll see in the next year is we're going to connect all the dots," he said. "The next wave is the connection of the last waves."
