Java in XP RRS feed

  • One of my main reason of why Java is not present in XP is because the SP 1 contained the Java Virtual Machine but the latest service pack SP 2 removed it and hence it proves that there is no Java in XP.

    Microsoft  didnt include support for the Java programming language in XP. After settling a lawsuit with Java creator Sun Microsystems in January, the software giant decided the easiest way to prevent further litigation was to simply remove the code entirely.

    The settlement stipulated that Microsoft would no longer license Java from Sun, and refrain from stating that Windows is "Java Compatible." Outdated Java support will remain available as an added download from Windows Update if required. Java's removal from the software giant's new operating system comes on the heels of announcements surrounding .NET, Microsoft Web services based on XML.

    These services are accessed over the Internet from a variety of devices. Coincidentally, Sun has been developing its own Java-based version of .NET, dubbed Jini. However, Microsoft vehemently denies claims that it intends to phase out support for Java as an attack on Sun.

     

     

    but the good news is that Sun has made JAVA an open software........so it must not be a problem in the near future
