FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Golden Code® RTE and SDK for the JavaTM 2
Platform, Standard Edition (J2SETM platform) Release 1.4.1_03
Licenses Free for Personal and Commercial Use
July 24, 2003 - Atlanta, Georgia, USA
- Golden Code Development today
announced it is shipping its port to OS/2 of JavaTM
Standard Edition (J2SETM
platform) release 1.4.1. Included in this
product is JavaTM
Web Start 1.2_02. The product will be licensed
without cost for personal and commercial use. Fee-based support services are
available from Golden Code Development and IBM Global Services.
This release marks the first and only J2SE 1.4 finished product to be made
generally available to OS/2 customers.
"Sun Microsystems welcomes the announcement of Golden Code's J2SE 1.4.1 for
OS/2 FCS release", said Karen Shipe, Product Line Manager for the J2SE
platform, Sun Microsystems, Inc. "By maintaining parity with the features of
Java available on other platforms, customers can support the latest business
function on OS/2 while it is necessary, and are able to more easily
transition away from OS/2 when it is required."
"With the Golden Code port, OS/2 customers now have a robust, high
performance and compatible J2SE 1.4 platform", said Greg Shah, President of
Golden Code Development. "No other J2SE 1.4 product for OS/2 provides this
same level of function or reliability. For example, the Golden Code JVM is
the only J2SE 1.4 product that provides such features as SMP support and a
fully functioning debugger."
High Performance, Native Implementation
Golden Code Development's native port of Sun Microsystems' release 1.4.1_03 code
base has been built from the ground up to run on OS/2. By avoiding the use of
emulation technology, Golden Code has avoided the reliability and performance
limitations inherent in such approaches. Run time performance is second to none,
surpassing the competition in most scenarios. This strong performance is achieved
without compromising system integrity, making the Golden Code port a "good citizen"
with respect to sharing system resources with other applications and system
The Golden Code product has been comprehensively tested by
external beta testers, through rigorous in-house regression testing, and with
Sun's stringent Java Compatibility Kit. The following configurations have been
explicitly certified Java CompatibleTM
- Warp 4 Uniprocessor (U.S. English) - HotSpotTM client compiler
- Warp 4 Uniprocessor (U.S. English) - HotSpotTM server compiler
- Warp 4 Uniprocessor (German NLS) - HotSpotTM client compiler
- Warp 4 SMP (U.S. English) - HotSpotTM client compiler
