Nokia to Help Develop Open Source Java Software for Mobile Phones

1:18 am on December 28, 2005 | Category: Business, Mobile Devices


Nokia has recently announced its decision to join the Eclipse Foundation as a Board member and Strategic Developer. Nokia will contribute software and developers to support the work of the Eclipse open source community.

Nokia’s central role will be to help create a framework for mobile Java development, with support for J2ME (Java 2 Micro Edition). This will ultimately provide developers with a sustainable suite of mobile software development tools, allowing them to build commercial Java applications for cellular phones.

“By working closely with Eclipse, and proposing a new open source mobile development tools project, we will provide the more than two million registered developers in our Forum Nokia program with complete integrated tool packages optimized for Nokia platforms,” said Nokia’s chief technology officer and executive VP, Pertti Korhonen. “In addition, developers creating mobile applications will be able to work more efficiently and achieve greater productivity by using the same Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for multiple programming languages and software platforms.”

“Mobile computing is an important part of Eclipse’s future and supports our goal of delivering a universal tools platform,” said executive director, Mike Milinkovich of the Eclipse Foundation. “We are pleased to have an industry leader like Nokia on board as a Strategic Developer and actively leading key new projects focused on J2ME and mobility.”
