BANGALORE: Sun Microsystems has asked Indian software developers to contribute and actively participate in the development of Mustang, the next generation of Java. Mustang is the code name for the next generation java release.

Jeff Jackson, Sun Microsystems’ Vice-President for Java Developer Platform and Strategy invited the developer community to actively contribute to the development of Mustang.

Sun allows developers to contribute and participate in the development of the platform and review it, he said.

Stressing the need to work together and collaborate with the Java community, Jackson said Indian developers could provide leadership, as efforts were being made to take Java to the next level.

Java was becoming more visible in development, Jackson said and added that developers like to see codes and check how to get their bugs fixed for Mustang.

Emphasizing on India’s role as a key contributor to the success of the Java, Matt Thompson, Director of Technology Outreach, Sun Microsystems, said that collaboration of Indian developers was the key to the next level of Java.

India and China are the two countries where Sun is making most of its investments in building the developer base, he said.

The Indian IT industry has evolved despite the Chinese government pushing hard for the development of the IT sector, he said.
