SUN DELIVERS NEXT VERSION OF THE JAVA(TM) PLATFORM

Java 2 Brand Unveiled

NEW YORK, NY -- December 8, 1998 -- Sun Microsystems, Inc. today announced
the availability of the Java(TM) 2 platform, the next release of the core
Java technology (formerly code-named "JDK(TM) 1.2"). The Java 2 platform is
the definitive environment for enterprises aiming to build and install
web-centric software applications that can run on a variety of computers,
servers and other computing devices. The new release provides significant
performance improvements, a new, flexible security model and a complete set
of Applications Programming Interfaces (APIs). The Java 2 platform provides
software programmers with the speed, security and functionality that make
it easier than ever to create interoperable, mission-critical enterprise
applications. The Java 2 platform is widely supported by the industry and
is being endorsed by hundreds of industry-leading companies worldwide (see
quote addendum). "Java 2 is the ultimate platform for businesses competing
in the networked economy," said Alan Baratz, president of Java Software at
Sun Microsystems, Inc. "Representing a major release of the Java
technology, the Java 2 platform provides the competitive advantage
businesses need to leverage, protect and easily expand upon existing
investments. With the Java 2 platform, companies can streamline business
processes, take advantage of new types of business opportunities and
compete in entirely new ways."

Developed in collaboration with the industry, the Java 2 platform
represents the input of close to 200 Java software licensees as well as
tens of thousands of Java technology developers.

"The new platform is truly the result of a unique partnership between Sun
and the industry," Baratz continued. "Sun's participative development
process enabled us to harness the energy and expertise of the industry to
produce a powerful, `best-of-breed' Java platform efficiently and rapidly.
The Java 2 platform is the model for technology development in a world of
rapid change."
The Java 2 platform is available for immediate download at

new features of the Java 2 platform.

flexible security policies that govern which actions an application or
applet can or cannot perform. The Java 2 platform security model includes
new features such as:

* Input Method Framework (supports Japanese, Chinese, and Korean characters)

* Complex output using the Java 2D API to provide a bi-directional,
high-quality display of Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew and other character
languages

* Java Plug-in
Java Plug-in for Web browsers, now included in the Java 2 platform,
provides a runtime that is fully compatible with the Java virtual machine
through easy download and install via widely deployed web browsers.

* Java IDL (Interface Definition Language) API The Java IDL API offers
standards-based distributed computing interoperability with CORBA. The API
includes the following features:

* Invoke operations or remote network services

* A fully compliant Java ORB is included in the runtime

* Java Database Connectivity 2.0 (JDBC 2.0) Enhancements JDBC provides
easier access to data for more flexible queries. Improved performance and
stability are afforded by scrollable cursors and support for SQL3 types.

* Collections Framework
This new unified architecture represents and manipulates collections for
development efficiency and allows interoperability among unrelated APIs.
