Sun Microsystems is developing a Java Virtual Machine for the iPhone and plans to release the it some time in June.

The JVM is to be based on the Java Micro Edition (ME) version of Java, said Eric Klein, vice president of Java marketing at Sun.

"Now, the iPhone is open", Klein said.

The JVM is going to be made available for free through Apple's AppStore.

"We're going to make sure that the JVM offers the Java applications as much access to the native functionality of the iPhone as possible," he said.

"Once our JVM is on the phone, we anticipate that a large number of Java applications would run on the phone," Klein said. "We're going to work to make sure that the JVM offers the Java applications as much access to the native functionality of the iPhone as possible."

Sun decided to develop the JVM within 24 hours of the iPhone RoadMap Event.

"It's a new platform for us. We might be able to bring additional technologies onto the iPhone and the iTouch," Klein said
