J2ME MSA Overview

Nokia and Vodafone have proposed an update to JTWI for both CLDC and CDC based devices. Today they announced that this update, the Mobile Service Architecture, has been accepted by the JCP for development. Details from the press release: “Nokia and Vodafone to Lead Roadmap for Mobile Java Standards“.

I hinted at some of the possibilities of MSA in my BAMF presentation last week, especially as it pertains to JSR 232: Mobile Operational Management. Now that the JCP has accepted both of the MSA JSRs for development, you can read more details about the proposal and the sort of work the expert groups intend to take up. Get a feel for the highlights from Forum Nokia’s MSA overview, then delve into more detail via the JSR 248: Mobile Service Architecture for CLDC and JSR 249: Mobile Service Architecture for CDC proposals.

What does this all mean? Nokia and its partners are working hard to simplify end-to-end mobile application development and deployment into real devices and networks. To put this another way: Watch these JSRs closely if you want to build wireless applications for deployment to hundreds of millions of Java enabled handsets in the next couple of years.
