May 08 2007 -- ARM announces that Sun Microsystems, a member of the ARM Connected Community, has licensed its Java and graphics acceleration as a part of Sun’s recent acquisition of the assets of SavaJE Technologies. The planned acquisition further expands Sun’s partnership with ARM and will enable the company to use ARM® technology to deliver vertical solutions targeted for high-performance multimedia and converged devices.
Under the agreement, ARM has transferred its Java and graphics licenses from SavaJE to Sun, which will include the ARM Swerve Client software, and ARM Jazelle® Java Technology Enabling Kit (JTEK™).
Swerve Client software - A high-performance implementation of the Java Mobile 3D Graphics (M3G) API, making devices compatible with a large catalog of 3D Java games.
Jazelle JTEK – Comprises the highly optimized support code and documentation that are required to integrate Jazelle DBX technology into a virtual machine and operating system.
This new collaboration will strengthen Sun’s solutions for the emerging generation of converged devices, enabling Sun to take advantage of a Jazelle JTEK technology-enabled JVM and Swerve 3D engine to deliver a high performance, proven and scaleable solution for the home and mobile markets.
