Sun updates Java Store beta

Site features storefront for downloading Java and JavaFX apps

Sun Microsystems unveiled on Friday an updated beta release of Java Store, a storefront for discovering and acquiring Java and JavaFX applications.

The beta release of the JavaFX-powered storefront is intended for developers.

[ On Thursday, Sun released its implementation of Java EE 6. ]

"This release includes a number of new features such as: Account creation in the client, the ability for developers outside of the U.S. to preview applications using the Java Store view, improved integration with PayPal and numerous smaller features, performance enhancements and bug fixes," said Sun representative Jacki DeCoster in a blog post on Friday afternoon.

Social networking, games, productivity tools, and business applications comprise some of what is downloadable from the store. Features of the store include a "Preview" capability for testing applications before deciding whether to buy.

There is no time set yet on general availability of Java Store.

Sun had launched a beta release of the store in June, billing it as a Web site where developers can connect with computer users who run Java on their desktop. It is similar to the Apple's App Store. The company also at the time touted a developer portal, Java Warehouse, to serve as the central repository for Java and JavaFX applications, which could then be distributed via Java Store. Java Warehouse also was updated on Friday.

With Friday's release, Java Warehouse is being opened up to six new countries: Israel, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Taiwan, and South Korea.
