I heard recently that Sun is going to start working on some public game servers which basically means you can develop games and use Sun's servers for playing these games via the network with other players.
Does anyone have any information about this? Any links? I can't find any.
I do not know whether this is what you are look for. Anyway, during JavaOne, Nokia, Sega and Sun announced that Sun will license Nokia's SNAP technology for game servers. It is not a separate "game server" from Sun. But rather, it is an add-on to Sun's numerous existing server solutions for telecomms. Nokia runs a very big online game community with it's N-Gage game console.
