Agilent Technologies Inc. and Sun Microsystems Inc. have formed the Java distributed data acquisition and control (JDDAC) community. It is the first open-source forum for development of Java applications and libraries for wide-area distributed sensors and controls. Sun Microsystems is the developer of the Java technology platform.

JDDAC's objective is to share information and encourage development of Java applications for industrial control, building automation, industrial security, utilities management, robotics, mobile communications, and distributed sensor and control networks. The community can be accessed at

JDDAC will create the first Java implementations of technologies for distributed sensors and actuators based on the IEEE 1451 and IEEE 1588 standards supported by the National Institute of Standards and Technologies. Agilent Laboratories, which is the central research organization of Agilent Technologies, is conducting extensive research on distributed wide-area sensor networks using wireless networking built on these standards.
