palmOne extends Java support to Treo 600 Smartphone
Posted on 16-Dec-2003 07:23 | Filed under: News



palmOne produced the latest release of a developer toolkit that brings Java 2 Micro Edition support to Treo 600 smartphones and Tungsten handhelds. A beta of the new version of IBM's WebSphere Micro Environment Toolkit for Palm OS Developers, which includes a new high-performance runtime with support for the latest Java Community Process standards, was released to developers through the palmOne PluggedIn developer website.

The toolkit enables developers to target, deploy, and execute Java MIDlet applications on palmOne devices, directly alongside native Palm OS applications. The early-access release allows software developers to design and test applications that utilize the new standards support and other capabilities in advance of the end-user runtime release next spring.

With the availability of Java technology, developers can use existing tools, skill sets, and in some cases code, to create new mobile solutions for palmOne products, as well as seamlessly deploy existing MIDP applications originally targeted at other devices with MIDP support. Specifically, the new release enables support for the Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) 1.1/ Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) 2.0 Java Specifications. This provides a Java Powered runtime together with the Treo 600 smartphone's five-way navigation, along with CDMA/1XRTT and GSM/GPRS network stack support, as well as the Tungsten line's high-resolution screens and the Tungsten T3 handheld's fully extended portrait and landscape displays. The performance of the new runtime is also significantly improved through native ARM optimization, beating many of the highest published scores on industry-standard benchmarks such as JBenchmark and MIDPMark.
