Sun and Apple Eye Enterprise Market — Apple and Sun announced last week that they intend to build a seamless bridge between Macintosh computers and Sun’s high-end Solaris enterprise servers, in an effort to combine high-performance networking services with the Mac’s multimedia and ease-of-use. Perhaps more significantly, Apple and Sun announced plans to make QuickTime and OpenDoc interoperate with Sun’s various Java technologies. Although currently targeted at the corporate intranet market, Apple-Sun cooperation could also give Apple technologies an inside track to some future Internet technologies, particularly if the much-hyped promise of Java begins to be fulfilled.
