Sun says its Java release for Windows Vista is "rock-solid".
Sun has begun circulating links to one of its engineer's blogs that claims "we have been building a rock-solid release of Java [Java Standard Edition 6] for Vista.
"We have been tuned into this release and making Java work on it since it was named after a breed of cattle [Longhorn]," according to Sun Java client group architect Chet Haase.
If there are problems, it will be with Java pre-dating Java SE 6 - Java SE 1.5 and Java SE 1.4.2 - although Hasse says necessary fixes will be back ported to these releases.
That would be OK, if it weren't for the fact Java SE 6 has yet to be finalized and made available for release, meaning most desktop Java SE is versions 1.5 and 1.4.2.
