Sun Microsystems Inc. will announce major alliances and customer wins that underscore how the adoption of Java technology is accelerating in China and helping to fuel economic growth at the JavaChina 2005 Developer Conference.

During the event, Sun will host nearly 10,000 Java developers and IT professionals in Beijing, as well as reaching out, via satellite broadcast, to eight additional cities throughout China, namely, Chengdu, DaLian, Guanghzou, Hong Kong, NanJing, Shanghai, ShenZhen and Xi'an. James Gosling, recognized as the "father of Java" and chief technology officer of the Sun developer products group, will join Scott McNealy in delivering the event's keynote speeches.

JavaChina 2005 is part of Sun's ongoing effort to support China's software developers through education, information and development tools such as the Sun Java Studio Creator application development tool and the open-sourced NetBeans software products.

Indicative of growing support for its Solaris 10 Operating System, Sun also revealed that a number of independent software vendors (ISVs) in China have announced migration to the Solaris operating system. These include UFIDA, JIT, KingDee, TongTech, Amarsoft, eBaoTech and Wiscom.

JavaChina 2005 will offer more than 100 workshops, classes and breakout sessions, in addition to code camps and hands-on labs. To meet the wide ranging needs of developers, programmers, educators and other attendees, the conference will be organized around seven themes: Java Core Platform, Core Enterprise, Desktop Systems, Advanced Network Technologies, Developer Tools, Mobility and Equipment, New and Cool.
