Sun: trial set for Kodak suit over Java

Unable to settle the patent suit filed by Kodak over Sun's Java software, the two sides will have to work it out in court--starting Sept. 15.

Sun Microsystems was unable to reach a settlement in a patent suit brought by Kodak relating to Sun's Java software, and the case now is scheduled to go to trial Sept. 15, the server maker said in a regulatory filing Friday.

Sun also revealed purchase details of its acquisition of Nauticus, a company that developed hardware for server security, virtualization and load-balancing tasks. The purchase price was $12 million, a figure that Sun didn't disclose when it acquired the company in January
