PalmSource expands Java support with IBM WebSphere
Palmsource revealed during the PalmSource Developer Conference that it has licensed IBM's WebSphere MicroEnvironment (WME) Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) certified runtime environment and WebSphere Studio Device Developer (WSDD) toolset for integration into the Palm OS platform.

PalmSource has also licensed the WME Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to enable existing and new Java applications to run on Palm Powered smart mobile devices. Additionally, users will be able to run existing Java applications originally built for MIDP-compliant devices, such as mobile phones and pagers, to run on Palm Powered smart mobile devices.

Extending Palm OS support for Java will encourage adoption of the Palm OS platform among the Java developer community to create software applications that take advantage of the advanced functionality of Palm Powered smart mobile devices. With more than 3 million members, the Java development community will now be able to leverage existing tools and languages to create new Palm OS-based Java solutions. In addition, integrating IBM's WME is designed to accelerate time to market for Palm Powered smart mobile devices.

By supporting Java, Palm Powered smart mobile devices will also be able to leverage mobile operator networks worldwide that have standardized their mobile services offerings on Java, making Palm OS a connected platform for mobile wireless products. Java delivers new application power and cutting edge wireless connection benefits to mobile devices, whether it is a business application that wirelessly connects to your corporate data or your favorite game.

PalmSource selected IBM WME because it delivers a fast, powerful and flexible J2ME runtime environment and is compliant with the latest standards defined by the Java Community Process (JCP). It is anticipated that IBM WME will enable the support of the industry standards for the Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) 1.0 and 1.1 and Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) 1.0 and 2.0 in compliance with the Sun Technology Compatibility Kits (TCK), which will allow Palm Powered smart mobile devices to seamlessly execute J2ME-compliant MIDlet Suite applications. PalmSource intends to offer Palm OS licensees the WME JVM and runtime licenses on Palm OS Garnet and Palm OS Cobalt later this summer.
