“The Java Mobile FX software is based on code Sun acquired from Savaje Technologies, a merger completed just last Friday. The Savaje software is a full implementation based on a desktop version of Java. It includes basic applications running on a real-time operating system.
Java Mobile FX is “a complete desktop-scale environment that puts the network in your hand,” said Richard Green, executive vice president of Sun’s software group, announcing the product in his keynote address.
Sun ported the Savaje code to a Linux kernel and is expanding the applications programming interfaces and set of developer tools that will ship with it. It plans to make the code available on other platforms in the future.”
I sure am glad I don’t write applications for mobile phones because those poor shmuc… Oh hang on – I do… 😦
