Java Store - Open For Beta Business

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Today, the Java Store debuts at the JavaOne conference, allowing the discovery and purchase of Java and JavaFX applications. As we reported previously, this could be the ultimate application store, given the large base of users that already have Java installed. 

Sun have opened a Java Warehouse Java Store applications: The Java Warehouse is the central repository for Java and JavaFX applications submitted for distribution through multiple storefronts including the Java Store. The Java Warehouse manages developer registration, application submission, content management, provisioning, and settlement, enabling you to focus on creating Java applications and soon making money from the sales of these applications.

The warehouse will be open to non-US residents in 2010.

Currently the store is running a private beta program, open only to US residents. A public beta will be open later on in the summer. They're looking for your feedback to make the store better, so it's well worth getting involved. One of the flagship applications in the store is TwitterFX.

It's going to be really interesting to see how this works out for Java. I think that it could help boost Java's popularity, and we could see some real innovative applications. It will be an excellent revenue stream for developers who get their applications on the store.
