Sun is open sourcing SPOT, its Java-based Small Programmable Object Technology research project under the GPLv2 license.

It said the contribution, made in search of Java-based wireless sensor and embedded apps, will include so-called eBones hardware architecture plans, the Squawk Java Virtual Machine and system software including libraries, drivers and networking stack.

Sun’s also cutting the educational price of SPOT's JDK to $299 – provided the school has a Sun Education buying contract – and expanded its availability to 35 countries.
