The Denmark-based Danske Bank plans to revamp its web-based banking service. At the same time the company will abandon the use of the Java programming language because of incompatibility issues with different browsers. These issues have prevented some customers from logging into their bank accounts online.

The new service will be launched during the summer and will feature SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and other security solutions, without any Java components.

Kenneth Kaarnimo, head of private customer operations said the bank was dissatisfied with recent difficulties updating Java-based software as well as the inconvenience experienced by online banking customers.

Jonkka ruled that Vapaavuori was discharging his official duties when he sealed the deal with the Russian state nuclear supplier Rosatom, and proposed a new permit for them to construct a nuclear plant in northwest Finland.
