Microsoft gets 120 days to ship Java

Baltimore, Jan. 16 (AP): Microsoft Corp will have 120 days to release a version of Sun Microsystems’ Java programming language for Windows after a Federal judge issues his formal order against the software giant.

US district judge J. Frederick Motz set that schedule on Wednesday during a lengthy hearing with lawyers from both the companies.

Sun had sought a 90-day period, while Microsoft wanted a three-phase approach that would have extended over 180 days.

Microsoft will have to release a version of Windows XP Service Pack 2 with Java.

“I want to provide the incentive to get this done,” Motz said. He said Microsoft could request additional time for its Java work later, with a good reason.

Motz also rescinded two orders he made last week to dismiss two of Sun’s claims in its lawsuit against Microsoft.
