System Speeds Java Deployment

Developing and deploying Java-based applications just got easier with IGoLogic's JBox. This compact system (2.5 by 11.5 by 10.5 in.) is based on Via's mini-ITX motherboards, running a 1-GHz C3 processor. It has a 40-Gbyte hard disk and handles up to 1 Gbyte of double-data-rate (DDR) RAM. Also, it has a full complement of PC-style peripheral interfaces, including an IEEE 1394 port and Ethernet support. There's a CDRW/DVD combo drive as well. Just add an LCD screen, keyboard, and mouse.

The system comes bundled with either Sun's JDS 3 (Java Desktop System) or Solaris 10 plus the Java 2 Standard Edition (J2SE) 5.0 Embedded. Development tools include NetBeans and Sun Java Studio. All of these tools come with runtime licenses so customers don't have to license the software from Sun when deploying a JBox. It's all there, ready to go.

JBox pricing starts at $399. Custom versions are available.
