The Java Store
team here at Sun is in the final stage of readying things to
fling open the doors to shoppers in the next week or so !
This means one more tweak of the store front
just like in a physical store, polishing signage, perfecting the
display areas and checkouts: in this case making the final UI changes
to the all-JavaFX
desktop app that
showcases all the Java
applications in stock and allows
purchase and installation.
And it means final verification of the apps that will be on the shelves
of the store on the day it opens - approaching 50 already, as participants in the
beta program will already know
- with more applications, ranging
from free to paid, to come. All coming
in at the back
of the store, the Java Warehouse
, which has
been pretty busy of late.
So if you have a Java
or JavaFX app
that's looking for an audience (like, perhaps the 60-70m
that download the JRE
each month...), you should stay tuned to the Planetarium
. Much more
in the coming weeks !
