Sun has opened a beta version of its ‘Java Store,’ which’s designed to give consumers an easy way to download Java programs. The store currently house few applications — a Java version of the RuneScape online role-playing game and a Java-based Twitter client called Twitter FX — but developers will have until the Java Store's public launch at the end of this year to add programs to it. The company is also testing a new developer portal, called ‘Java Warehouse,’ which Sun says is "the central repository for Java and JavaFX applications." Developers who pay a $50 fee to register with Java Warehouse will be able to distribute their programs via the Java Store.
