Sun Microsystems comes to aid of missing children Web site

Published on .

Sun Microsystems is hoping that Java broadcasts will prove just as effective as milk cartons in the search to find missing children. When the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children recently approached Sun to donate a server, it offered the center access to its Java technology to broadcast images and information on missing children to any interested non-for-profit site. The center needed a new server to handle a recent traffic surge; when it relaunched its Web site in January, its traffic jumped to 200,000 hits a day from a mere 3,000.
