Allows developers to incorporate Java technology into mobile devices
Qualcomm and Oracle have launched Oracle’s Sun Java Wireless Client for Qualcomm’s Brew Mobile Platform (Brew MP).
The companies said that the handset manufacturers and developers are provided with a new offering to incorporate Java technology into mobile devices based on Brew MP in a consistent manner across devices, ensuring integration and coexistence of Java applications with Brew MP native applications.
Brew MP is a mass-market mobile operating system platform that delivers smartphone functionality across virtually all tiers of devices. The operating system enables capabilities such as touchscreen, multimedia, window management, open platform extensibility and expanded support for native application development.
Qualcomm said that the pre-integration and pre-optimisation of Oracle’s Sun Java Wireless Client on Brew MP is expected to extend the Brew MP value proposition of providing open platform offering across various device types and tiers.
In addition, the availability of customisation and configuration tools from Oracle-Sun enables device manufacturers to fine-tune the offering to their target devices without modifying the Java implementation, the company said.
Jason Kenagy, vice president of product management for Qualcomm CDMA Technologies, said: We are pleased to be working with Oracle on the pre-integrated Sun Java Wireless Client for Brew MP, which will provide a variety of portability, consistency and time-to-market benefits to the wireless ecosystem. Oracle’s Sun Java Wireless Client is the preferred Java technology solution for Brew MP.
