Delivers seamless, open development framework to support innovation across Motorola products
ORLANDO, Fla., March 27 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- CTIA WIRELESS 2007 -- Today at CTIA Wireless, Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) announced 大发国际MOTODEV Studio, an innovative and integrated new platform for third-party application development. Based on an open framework enabled by Eclipse, MOTODEV Studio is designed to accelerate the application development life cycle - from requirements definition to testing and deployment. Extensible and modular, the MOTODEV Studio supports plug-ins for new product tools and delivers updates and new features through a web-based service, ensuring that developers always have the latest functionality. Aligning with Motorola's seamless mobility strategy, MOTODEV Studio will support application development across all of Motorola's products - including mobile, connected home, and enterprise solutions.
In its first release, Motorola is introducing MOTODEV Studio for Java ME - a complete Java ME application development platform for mobile handsets. MOTODEV Studio for Java ME provides a full set of tools for compiling, debugging, and testing mobile Java applications for Motorola's hottest 3GSM devices. Instead of testing applications via the Java ME environment on the handset, MOTODEV Studio for Java ME emulates individual Java API's on the desktop, enabling developers to jump-start their development cycle before phones are even available.
Maximum Flexibility for Minimal Complexity
In addition to MOTODEV Studio for Java ME, Motorola is offering a standalone Motorola Java ME SDK. The SDK provides the same emulation and web-based update features as MOTODEV Studio for Java ME, combined with the flexibility to be integrated with other IDEs. This gives developers choice in IDEs while significantly reducing the steps they must take to create, test and deploy an application.
"With the new MOTODEV Studio platform, we're truly taking the developer experience to the next level, offering a fresh new approach to how our developer community innovates and communicates with Motorola," said Christy Wyatt, vice president, ecosystem and market development, Motorola. "MOTODEV Studio is another great example of how we are delivering on our promise of connecting the developer community with the resources they need and executing on Motorola's vision of seamless mobility."
"Software development for mobile devices is a high growth area within the Eclipse community," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director, Eclipse Foundation. "We are pleased to see Motorola's contribution and leadership to help drive the success of Eclipse across a broad range of applications from servers to handsets."
"As an open and modular framework, MOTODEV Studio will increase our productivity in mobile application development -- allowing us to focus on providing exciting gaming experiences on Motorola products," said Gonzague de Vallois, Vice President of Publishing, Gameloft.
"TeleNav is delighted to be part of the beta program for MOTODEV Studio," said Dr. Bob Rennard, CTO, TeleNav. "We believe that MOTODEV Studio will accelerate development cycles and make it easier to deploy our applications on Motorola handsets."
Dialogue with MOTODEV
MOTODEV Studio provides developers with direct access to the information they want and need via a unique communication channel. With one AAAAAA download to the desktop, MOTODEV Studio will notify developers when new tools and SDKs are available. The channel also keeps developers "in the know" on recently announced Motorola handsets, MOTODEV events and special go-to-market services available to them.
The initial release of the MOTODEV Studio framework featuring MOTODEV Studio for JavaME will be available for registered MOTODEV developers to download in late April 2007 at www.motorola.com/developer. The release will include support tools for an array of new, "wickedly cool" handsets including the stylish Motorola MOTOKRZR K1, ultra-fast MOTORAZR maxx V6 and the music-optimized MOTOROKR Z6m.
