        James Gosling's keynote talk at the JavaOne[SM] 2003 Developer
        Conference showcased how the use of Java[TM] technology has grown since
        the programming language was released in 1995. Highlights include the
        Mars Rover from the Jet Propulsion Labs, automation uses such as robots,
        and a cell phone enabled with Java technology and GPS.

        The Mars Rover

        Gosling and Dan Dvorak, deputy architect of the Mission Data System with
        Jet Propulsion Labs (JPL) demonstrated a Mars Rover exploration
        prototype using RTSJ (Real Time Specification for Java technology) to
        control rover mobility.

        Java Technology Automation

        Jim Wright, Solutions Architect with Sun, demonstrated how industrial
        Java technology powers robots, sensors and other manufacturing
        operations. The automation initiative was developed by Sun, aJile
        Systems, *onix and Mitsubishi Electric Automation to extend Sun's
        Smart Station technology to the factory.

        Jentro GPS

        Ansgar Hempel, Vice President with Jentro, demonstrated Jentro's
        end-to-end cell phone-based navigation system giving access to Global
        Positioning System (GPS) data through a Java technology enabled cell phone.

        "Since the release of Java (programming language) in 1995, seeing what
        people are doing with it blows my mind," said James Gosling, vice
        president of Sun Labs and Sun Fellow. "After eight short years, the Java
        technology Community is millions strong, with the best and brightest
        minds collaborating and contributing to the cool technologies of the
        future. So where will Java (technology) be in the next eight years? That
        can only be answered by the developers who have made it what it is today
        and wherever the road takes us will be an exciting ride."

     For Content Management, Personalization, Authentication, Security and More

        Hundreds of partners and independent software vendors (ISVs) showcased
        their products and solutions based on Java[TM] technology and Sun[TM]
        Open Net Environment (Sun ONE) software. The companies include Novell,
        Business Objects and others.

        "Sun is dedicated to reducing the time it takes to design, develop and
        implement new enterprise applications," stated Stuart Wells, senior vice
        president, Market Development Organization, Sun. "To that end, we
        launched the Java Verified[TM] Program to ensure the highest quality of
        Java technology-based applications reach the market. Oracle, Macromedia
        and several other leading software vendors have participated ensuring
        their products will seamlessly integrate with other Java[TM] 2 Platform,
        Enterprise Edition (J2EE[TM]) based solutions."

        Novell uses the J2EE platform. "Novell believes that the J2EE platform
        provides the only viable enterprise-class deployment option for cross
        platform Web Services-based applications," said Frank Auger, vice
        president of product management for Novell's Web application development
        products.

        Business Objects uses the Sun[TM] ONE Application Server 7 (formerly
        iPlanet[TM] Application Server). "Business Objects Enterprise 6
        leverages the enterprise-class infrastructure of the Sun ONE Application
        Server 7 to offer companies a comprehensive, end-to-end business
        intelligence solution," said Chris Caren, vice president, Corporate
        Product Marketing at Business Objects.
