So, StarOffice was trying like heck during JavaOne, and they still are, to get developers and ISPs to start grooving on StarPortal. Basically this is an ASP angle, application service provider, like having a normal Solaris system with all the apps on the server, but in real life, for AOL and CompuServe and other users.
A little info: http://www.sun.com/products/staroffice/starportal/
General StarOffice developer info: http://www.staroffice.com/cgi-bin/eforum.cgi?ADDR=developers&DIR=mesg
The presentation at JavaOne gave the impression that the architecture for StarPortal is coming from the same fine folks who gave us the GUI on StarOffice. Aack! ;> Of course, I'm not a developer, I could be wrong, it could be simple and elegant...
Has anyone started thinking about getting on board with this?
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
