Sun Microsystems Provides Core Technology for Verizon Developer Community

Adds Java Technology Expertise and Support for Mobile Application Developers

SAN DIEGO, BASKING RIDGE, N.J., and SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- From CTIA WIRELESS I.T. & Entertainment 2009®, Verizon Wireless said today it is working closely with Sun Microsystems, Inc., and leveraging Sun's technical capabilities, experience in managing developer communities and expertise in application delivery systems to support the recently launched Verizon Developer Community (VDC). The VDC is the place for mobile developers to learn about all of Verizon's applications programs, to submit applications for the soon-to-be launched V CAST Apps storefront, and to interact with Verizon experts and others in the mobile applications community.

Sun will provide key technologies and services to Verizon in support of VDC and to be used in building the V CAST Apps storefront, scheduled to launch later this year. The V CAST Apps storefront is built on the Sun Java(TM) Content Delivery Server, a core component of Sun's Java(SM) Warehouse Platform, enabling Verizon to manage and deliver mobile applications and personalized content such as ringtones and wallpaper to millions of devices across the Verizon Wireless network. In addition, the Sun Java Content Delivery Server powers the VDC lifecycle of content enabling developers to upload and manage their mobile applications via the VDC application submission portal.

"We are committed to the success of the VDC and excited about collaborating with Verizon Wireless to help them build a world-class application store and support their new developer program," said Jeet Kaul, senior vice president of Java engineering at Sun. "Working together, we will make it easy for developers to quickly get their applications to market, and to expand the community to include the millions of Java developers who build applications for Java ME, the leading mobile application platform."

About the VDC

The Verizon Developer Community was launched to foster innovation in the mobile application space. Developers who have created apps for platforms such as Java, BREW, Android, Windows Mobile and others are encouraged to join the VDC and to submit their concepts and applications for V CAST Apps.

The developer portal now offers simple, click-through agreements so developers can quickly and easily start the path to market for their applications.

The VDC provides a streamlined testing and certification process for applications, with the goal of having approved applications launched within 14 days of submission, and gives developers the opportunity to set their own prices for applications, among other things. To register for the VDC, visit http://developer.verizon.com.

News and updates about the Verizon Developer Community will be posted on Twitter at www.twitter.com/VDCConference.
