Java as a programming language and object model received a big boost on Monday as an armload of independent software vendors announced at PC Expo in New York that they are shipping programs specifically designed to run on Java-enabled workstations.

The applications are written in 100% Pure Java, and they range from development and management tools to personal productivity software.

A 100% Pure Java program is one that is certified by Sun to comply with the Java specification and not be tied to particular hardware.

The software vendors making announcements Monday include: Active Software, Applix, Bulletproof, Computron Software, GraphOn, I-Kinetics, Infoscape, InterSoft Argentina, Jscape, NetFactory, NeuronData, Penumbra, Software Engines, Unikix Technologies, WebMan Technologies, WebLogic, and Wyatt River Software.
