Sun on Java and Games
6:49 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
HomeLan has conducted an interview with the recently formed Game Technologies Group of Sun Microsystems. Being the inventors of the Java programming language, Sun has formed the group with the interest of pushing Java as a primary gaming platform.
One of the main points stressed repeatedly in the interview is Java's ability to cater to massively multiplayer online games, including secure and stable connections:
Java technology provides key developer productivity benefits already demonstrated in enterprise and consumer applications and proven network computing scalability and security features required for massively multiplayer on-line games. This works both ways -- not only is Java a valuable technology for game developers complete with a community of 3 million plus Java developers to work with, but the Java developer will have the ability apply their network expertise and software development skills to tap into the rapidly growing multiplayer games market.Also noted is the possibility of the simultaneous connection of consoles, PCs, and cellphones. Juan Carlos Soto, Business and Engineering Manager, also notes that Java has already seen extensive use in several forms of gaming.
