Technological Consideration
• ARC Mobile embraces J2ME (Java 2 Micro Edition) for its robustness, flexibility, and support across abundant mobile environment and other embedded devices like mobile phones, smart phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), TV set-top boxes • J2ME comes with out-of-box rich and flexible user interfaces, robust security, built-in network protocols, and support for networked and offline applications that can be downloaded dynamically • Applications based on J2ME are portable across many devices, yet leverage each device's native capabilities • J2ME conforms to Java philosophy of “Compile once, run anywhere” policy
Slide 11

Your Chief Analytics Officer

Technological Consideration
• A Sneak preview of J2ME Architecture and its Components

Slide 12

Your Chief Analytics Officer

Technological Consideration
• Development Environment
 Netbeans IDE 6.0 Netbeans IDE 6.0 is opted as the Integrated development environment for numerous reasons and are as follows
▫ Out-of-box Mobility plug-in for J2ME development ▫ Out-of-box VMD a.k.a., Visual Mobile Designer for designing intuitive and complex mobile user interfaces with drag and drop capability ▫ Support for Device fragmentation issues which allows same code to be ported across multiple devices ▫ Out-of-box Emulator toolkit for simulating across multiple devices ▫ Support of advanced graphics by providing in-built support of SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) ▫ Access to Web services by using the in-built Wireless Connection Bridge ▫ Integrated tools for Unit testing, MIDlet signing, certificate management, automatic code obfuscation, integrated over-the-air (OTA) emulation, push registry emulation, WMA a.k.a., Wireless Messaging API emulation for SMS and Multimedia APIs ▫ Complete control over all the tool using standard Apache Ant scripts

Slide 13

Your Chief Analytics Officer

Technological Consideration
• Use of Open source Tool kit
 Use “J2ME Polish” for advanced build tool and GUI for J2ME applications - www.j2mepolish.org  Use “Fire” for lightweight theme GUI engine for J2ME MIDP2 applications - http://sourceforge.net/projects/fire-j2me N.B.: Need to carry POC process to conclude the flexibility claimed by these open source libraries
