New York, NY (December 8, 1998)- Java Developers Journal (JDJ), the premier print publication targeting Java development professionals, today recognized the industry leading products that provide business solutions with Java. JDJ presented its Editors Choice Awards during a ceremony held at the Java Business Expo. The awards were given to the winners before a crowd gathered at the JDJ booth during the first day of the show.
Winners and finalists in 17 award categories were acknowledged for the contributions they made in developing Java-based solutions that respond to and meet the increasing demands of technology.
Products that advance the age of Java technology are introduced every day, said Sean Rhody, editor-in-chief of Java Developers Journal.

The editor-in-chief selected the winners by consulting with other JDJ editors to review nominations and make selections. The Editors Choice Awards is based on the judgment of the editors, not on votes. It is also not based on product categories. If two of 10 products compete in the same category, both can win awards if they pursue unique approaches to a similar problem. There is also no rule that each category must have a winner.
