Sun Microsystems says it will offer Java to the open source community. Rich Green, Sun's executive vice president of software, said the company hoped to turn more developers into Java programmers.

"The open sourcing of this really means more: more richness of offerings, more capability, more applications that consumers will get to use," Mr Green said.

"The platform itself will become a place for innovation."

The decision covers all Java technology, including software that runs on handheld devices, personal computers and servers.
