This presentation provides a brief introduction to Java ME. We will then cover the current major Java initiative being undertaken by the wireless industry, the Mobile Service Architecture (MSA). The MSA includes several new Java Specification Requests (JSRs) that provide enhanced functionality and access to the new capabilities of mobile devices. We will demonstrate the Sun Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5 for CLDC, Beta release, which provides a convenient environment for developers to develop applications using the new MSA technologies. We will also demonstrate the NetBeans IDE and the NetBeans Mobility Pack, which together provide a complete, highly integrated environment for developing applications for Java ME enabled mobile devices. We will conclude with a brief description of Sun's recently announced intention to open-source the Java platform.
Stuart Marks is a Senior Staff Engineer in the Mobile and Embedded Platforms Group of Sun Microsystems, Inc. He is currently involved in the creation of the open source community for Java ME and in the development of Sun's product implementations of Java ME for use in mobile devices. He also has extensive software design and development experience in the areas of window systems, graphics, and electronic commerce. He has served on several JCP expert groups defining API specifications for Java ME, including MIDP 1.0 (JSR-37), PDA Optional Packages (JSR-75), and MIDP 2.0 (JSR-118)
