SDK supports the latest technologies of the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5 Specification. Java Application Platform SDK Update 2 focuses on streamlining enterprise application development and improving developer productivity. With the all-in-one bundle, developers can quickly learn, develop, and deploy new enterprise Java technologies. This is a free release and is based on the source code developed by Sun engineers and the open-source community. The following distributions are available:
Developers using Solaris, Linux, or Windows operating systems have the option to download the SDK bundles with JDK or Tools (NetBeans). The SDK with tools bundle includes NetBeans 5.5 Enterprise Pack, which provides development tools for building composite applications.
Portlet Container 1.0 Beta: The Java Portlet Specification (JSR 168) is a standard for developing portal components with the Java programming language. The Portlet Container not only implements the Java Portlet Specification, but also provides a portlet driver, a lightweight portlet rendering environment. The NetBeans Portlet Plugin provides state-of-the-art tools to create and deploy portlets on the Portlet Container.

About JBI Runtime with BPEL (Project Open ESB Starter Kit)
Project Open ESB Starter Kit implements a JBI runtime with BPEL support that incorporates the JSR 208 specification for Java Business Integration (JBI) and other open standards. Open ESB Starter Kit allows you to integrate web services and enterprise applications as loosely coupled composite applications within a service-oriented Architecture (SOA). The development tools provided with NetBeans 5.5 Enterprise Pack can be used with Open ESB Starter Kit to build composite applications that can be deployed to the JBI runtime.
About the Portlet Container 1.0 Beta
The Java Portlet Specification ( JSR 168) is a standard for developing portal components with the Java programming language. The Portlet Container 1.0 Beta software implements the Java Portlet Specification, but also provides a portlet driver, a lightweight portlet rendering environment. This driver simulates some capabilities of a typical portal product (like the Sun Java System Portal Server). The Portlet Container 1.0 Beta software also provides an extension to the standard Java Portlet allowing Inter Portlet Communication, a Portlet Specification 2.0 feature ( JSR 286).
About Sun Java System Access Manager 7.1
Access Manager provides an open, standards-based authentication and policy-based authorization within a single, unified framework. It secures the delivery of essential identity and application information to meet current businesss needs, and to scale as needs grow, by offering SSO as well as enabling federation across trusted networks of partners, suppliers, and customers. Access Manager 7.1 Beta provides Java EE developers with a runtime environment for single sign-on (SSO) and a federation functionality for enterprise applications to secure web services using generic security tokens from the WSI-BSP (SAML, UserName and X509) and the Liberty ID-WSF (Bearer, SAML and X509).
Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Support
The Java Application Platform SDK is integrated with NetBeans Enterprise Pack 5.5, which provides tools support for writing, testing, and debugging Java EE 5, and service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications and interoperable secure web services. The pack also provides visual design tools for XML schema editing, BPEL-based web service orchestration, and UML modeling (the UML design tool is available as beta-level software from the NetBeans Auto Update center). Application Server is supported by the NetBeans IDE, the Sun Java Studio Enterprise IDE, and IntelliJ IDEA 6.0. In addition, a plug-in for Eclipse is available from the Project GlassFish community.
