SUNSOFT INDEPENDENT SOFTWARE VENDOR DEVELOPER PROGRAMME FOR SOLARIS 2.0

By CBR Staff Writer

Sun Microsystems Inc’s Sunsoft is kicking off a new programme called the Master Developer Series this week. Tools already implemented for Solaris 2.0-on-Sparc are going to be brought to the attention of other independent software vendors to streamline their implementation efforts. The Master Developer Series represents about 35 products from 18 companies including object databases from Objectivity Inc and Object Design Inc, licence managers from Highland Inc, user interface tools from XVT Inc and Solbourne Computer Corp, and programming environments from Centerline Inc and Sun’s SunPro. Interested independent software vendors will be able to get early access to the tools, perhaps under special arrangements. The tools, half of which are now under Solaris 2.0, were brought over under the first wave of Solaris early access programmes, offically begun a few months ago but actually starting with the release of OpenWindows some time ago, which focused on getting roughly 150 to 200 of Sun’s top applications over to Sun’s Unix System V.4 iteration. Last week Sunsoft began the second wave of the early access programme, which aims to get 500 to 550 companies, each with one or two key programs, onto the new software. Once the final product is out this summer, the early access programme will begin all over again for Solaris on Intel, according to Sunsoft’s director of strategic development marketing, Peter Watkins.
