Starting today, Sun's newly appointed EVP, Software, John Loiacono, told
Sun's "iForce" partners at the iForce Summit in San Diego, qualified iForce
reseller partners can license the Java Enterprise System software from Sun
for just $50 per employee per year and the Java Desktop System software for
