Sun Studio 12 Software

Sun Studio software delivers a high-performance, optimizing C, C++, and Fortran developer toolchain for Solaris, OpenSolaris, and Linux operating systems, including support for multicore x86- and SPARC-based systems. The toolchain includes parallelizing compilers, code-level and memory debuggers, performance and thread analysis tools, OpenMP support as well as optimized math libraries. With a next-generation NetBeans-based IDE, development of multicore applications has never been easier.

It includes a set of basic Java language support modules that can be enabled if needed for JNI (JavaTM Native Interface) development.

The Sun Studio software consists of two major components:

  1. The Sun Studio component, which includes the IDE, compilers, tools, and core platform.

  2. The Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE) technology on which the core platform runs.
