Java Store in final stages before open


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 and JavaFX 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 !

buy-checkout-payment options may be disabled, but at least give us a chance to see the system.. we still have no idea about how it looks like..
thats disappointing

+1 for @marcosal. I am a strong JavaFX enthusiast -- and locally a influent tech writer -- but not a US citizen or resident; so far I've been unable to even test the JavaStore. If I could do that, a big cover story about the JavaStore, for Brazil's leading Java print&online publication, could be finished by now and just waiting for the schedule of JavaStore's opening here. And Sun wouldn't even have to pay me for this big piece of publicity.

Looking forward to Linux (specifically Ubuntu) support. It's sadly not much use to me until then.
