Sun Introduces the Authoritative Wireless Developer Portal: Wireless.Java.Sun.Com

(April 29, 2002) - Committed to supporting Java technology developers in the burgeoning wireless application market, Sun Microsystems, Inc. highlights its new Wireless Developer Portal, Wireless.java.sun.com. Exemplary of the Sun Developer Connection[sm] program's commitment to the developer community, the new site is the authoritative central resource dedicated to helping Java technology developers successfully develop, deploy, and make money from wireless Java applications.

As businesses increasingly turn to Java technology as their platform of choice for delivering Web services, Wireless.java.sun.com. will help developers meet this demand with the tools, resources, and community support needed to develop compelling, innovative applications for mobile computing. Created by the leaders in authoritative Java developer support, the Java Developer Connection?, this new resource supports the individual developer's efforts by providing them with a means to learn, solve problems, grow technically and connect with opportunities in the wireless market.

"Wireless.java.sun.com will quickly become the home of the wireless developer because it goes beyond technical content to provide strategies and resources developers need to navigate the wireless ecosystem - from development to provisioning to billing," said Paul Pangaro, senior director of Developer Web Services of Sun Microsystems. "This site will be a boon to millions of Java developers because they will now be able to get great wireless Java technology support from their most trusted source, the Java Developer Connection."

As the first standards-based wireless resource with end-to-end Java solutions, Wireless.java.sun.com. offers an easy way for developers to get started on J2ME? standards and tools. Some of the site's resources include:

  • Tutorials, case studies and reports to learn from scratch or build on existing knowledge base
  • Forums to get quick answers to practically any type of programming problem
  • Code Drop for sharing code among peers
  • Bug Database to learn the status of bugs and workarounds
  • RSS compatibility providing access to the News and Highlights page from any wireless device.
SUN ANNOUNCES BREAKTHROUGH JAVA[tm] TECHNOLOGY FOR CONSUMER DEVICES
New Virtual Machines Expected to Improve Performance of Java Technology-Based Devices Up to Ten Times Higher than Existing Virtual Machines
Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced a breakthrough in consumer device technology -- new Java Virtual Machine (VM) solutions that exponentially improve the performance of Java technology-based networked devices.

The two new VMs (code named Project Monty) for Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) and Connected Device Configuration (CDC)/Dynamic Compiler - are expected to deliver a level of performance up to 10 times higher than existing virtual machine technologies in a very small footprint. Sun is collaborating with ARM, the leading provider of 16/32-bit embedded RISC processor technology, and Symbian, an innovative provider of mobile device operating system software, to deliver this world-class technology to consumer devices.

With enhanced acceleration technology, developers can deliver richer content and faster, more robust applications for mobile phones, PDAs, set-top boxes, residential gateways and automotive systems. Consumers will benefit from longer battery life and faster application performance from their devices when compared to conventional VM implementations.

The new virtual machine solutions are designed to work with ARM microprocessors, as well as other microprocessor designs, and will complement the ARM® Jazelle? technology. Following a licensing and collaboration agreement made last year, joint Sun and ARM solutions are broadening the market for consumer devices by providing higher performance solutions for devices at the high-end and low-end.

Project Monty high performance VMs are ideally suited for data-enabled mobile phones and entry-level PDAs. CDC/Dynamic Compiler is tailored for high-end PDAs and communicators, game consoles, web tablets, TV set-top boxes and automotive telematics systems and is well suited for solutions that need higher-end features than available in CLDC, but where memory footprint is still constrained.

ARM's Jazelle technology is ideally suited to environments where long battery life and/or low system cost is a critical factor, as in the case of entry-level handsets and upwards. Currently, ARM core-based processors are in the baseband modem and application processor sockets in most of the world's mobile phones and PDAs.

Symbian is one of the first companies leveraging this joint effort. Symbian OS 7.0 already supports the ARM Jazelle technology and with added support for Monty, it will be able to satisfy even more stringent performance requirements. Symbian's implementation of Java technology offers a rich Java environment for mobile phones, giving Java developers access to application engines, communications, and messaging, among other things.

These world-class virtual machine solutions - Project Monty and CDC/Dynamic Compiler - will be available commercially by this summer.
