Sun and Google shake hands

Sun Microsystems and Google announced a multiyear partnership Tuesday to help spread and develop each other's software, a deal that includes, Java and OpenSolaris from Sun, and Google's Toolbar.

The partnership begins with a modest step: Within 30 days, the Google toolbar will become a standard part of the software people get when they download Java from Sun's Web site. The Java Runtime Environment is downloaded 20 million times per month, Sun Chief Executive Scott McNealy said. Sun and Google shake hands | CNET
