Sun Microsystems (or should I say Oracle ;)) unveiled their strategy for Java apps. The project (code named Vector) is an application store, similar to the Apple store but with the potential of being bigger and oriented to desktop applications:
The Java Warehouse is the repository for Java and JavaFX applications submitted by developers for distribution through the Java Store to hundreds of millions of desktops worldwide.
Right now the offer a private invitation and I luckily got accepted to try their beta program. And guess which application will be part of the Java store?
