Today, I read on Sun's java homepage that Sun provides free-downloads of it's award winning development tools:
Sun Java Studio Creator 2004Q2 (full license),
Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8 (full license)
Sun Studio 11 (full-license) software
Sun's follows Microsoft (with their express editions) to make their tools available for free-download. This is a great sign for developers like me, who want to try new technologies but do not have the money (or do not want to pay for it ;)) to buy all the handy development tools..They can now easily choose the right tool for their job!
