"This specification gives mobile service providers and manufacturers a new platform to deliver the next generation of compelling applications and services to the mobile market," said Jon Bostrom, Director of Emerging Technologies, Nokia Corporation, and chairman of the OSGi Alliance Mobile Expert Group. "This technology platform brings the benefits of a service-oriented architecture and component-based development to the mobile industry and it will enable the industry to create and evolve new mobile services at Web 2.0 speeds to meet -- and even anticipate -- changing needs."
The OSGi R4 mobile specification, now also specified by the JCP, allows developers to create, deploy and manage loosely coupled cooperating services into the mobile Java environment. It extends the OSGi dynamic module system for Java down to mobile devices and creates a middleware market segment in the mobile industry.
JSR 232 Mobile Operational Management creates a predictable management environment for mobile devices capable of installing, executing, profiling, updating and removing Java and associated native components in the JavaME Connected Device Configuration.
"This is next-generation architecture for the mobile space," said Venkat Amirisetty, Distinguished Member of Technical Staff, Motorola, and co-spec lead of JSR 232. "It is an important first step in providing a predictable CDC-based environment for developers on mobile devices. It opens doors for creating highly manageable productivity applications and services for a new breed of devices entering the market place."
The R4 mobile specification is available for immediate download at http://www.osgi.org/osgi_technology/download_specs.asp?section=2.
OSGi technology provides a service-oriented, component-based environment for developers and offers standardized ways to manage the software lifecycle. It is universal middleware. These capabilities greatly increase the value of a wide range of computers and devices that use the Java platform.
The JavaME platform is deployed in well over 1 billion mobile devices and is supported by leading tool vendors and operators worldwide.
