* The Best Java Application Development Framework award went to Sun Java Studio Enterprise (JSE).

Sun won nine SOA Web Services Journal Readerís Choice Awards:

* The Best Web Services Platform award went to the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (EE). Java EE defines deployment requirements for numerous Web services APIs and utilizes the JAX-RPC programming model. The Best SOA Portal Platform award went to Sun Java System Portal Server.

It contains all the functionality needed to develop, debug, tune and test enterprise applications, web services and portal components based on Java platform standards.
* The Best XML Parser award went to Java API for XML Processing. The Java API for XML Processing (JAXP) supports processing of XML documents using DOM, SAX, and XSLT. JAXP enables applications to parse and transform XML documents independent of a particular XML processing implementation.
* The Best XML Utility award went to Java API for XML Processing. Depending on the needs of the application, developers have the flexibility to swap between XML processors (such as high performance vs. memory conservative parsers) without making application code changes. Thus, application and tools developers can rapidly and easily XML-enable their Java applications for e-commerce, application integration, and dynamic Web publishing.
