Sun brews up Java EE 6 (and with it brings support for PHP)

Sun Microsystems is still the steward of the Java programming language and its related virtual machine and runtime environment. Despite its PR blackout as the $7.4bn acquisition of Sun by Oracle is mulled by European regulators, Java Enterprise Edition version 6, or Java EE 6, has been released. Sun has also delivered versions of its GlassFish Web application server and NetBeans development tools that are based on Java EE 6.

GlassFish implements the OSGi runtime, which allows for features to be dynamically added to the Java server as needed and for the skinniest possible Java stack to be deployed to support applications. Companies can create applications using the Web profile and then, using the GlassFish update center, move to the full Java EE 6 implementation to scale their Java applications out.

GlassFish v3...can interact with various integrated development environments, including Sun's own NetBeans as well as Eclipse, Ant, IntelliJ, and Maven, and supports a number of other languages aside from Java. These include PHP, JRuby/Rails, Jython/DJango, Scala/Lift, Groovy/Grails, and server-side JavaScript. Sun is charging $999 per server per year to support GlassFish.
