Jupitermedia Corporation's JupiterWeb division announced the acquisition of JGuru.com (www.jguru.com), an online community for Java(TM) programmers and software developers. JGuru.com provides news, information, forums and online courses designed for Java(TM) programmers and software developers. The JGuru.com online community is comprised of top Java(TM) developers, who are encouraged to maintain their individuality and express their own opinions freely, which gives JGuru.com the credibility needed for the success of any online community. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

"The acquisition of JGuru.com further adds to JupiterWeb's comprehensive collection of online communities and will be a valuable resource for user audience as well as for Jupitermedia," stated Alan Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Jupitermedia Corporation. "JGuru.com's audience of Java(TM) software developers are very passionate about their industry and dedicated to their profession. This makes them a highly desirable audience to advertisers needing to reach them," added Meckler.

JGuru.com will become part of Jupitermedia's EarthWeb.com Network, which is organized into five "channels" targeting the needs of IT Management, Hardware and Systems Professionals, Networking and Communications Administrators, Web and Software Developers.
