"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

iPlanet was a joint venture between Netscape and SUN. The company developed several products, like HTTP Server, LDAP server and more.
SUN abuot a year ago purchased Netscape part and rebranded all the products under the Sun ONE name.
Sun ONE Application Server today is at version 7, and is a complete application server, much like weblogic, websphere, Oracle9iAS and so on.
It is supported, and recently there was an announcment by SUN that says that SunONE application server (the basic edition) will be the reference implementation of J2EE 1.4.

If you are experienced with iPlanet Application Server 6.5 I strongly suggest you upgrade. SunONE 7 is so much better it hurts.
