Kada Joins Java Technology for the Wireless Industry as Licensee

7/3/2003 - Kada Systems, a leading independent provider of certified Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) software deployment solutions for mobile solution providers, announced that it has dramatically expanded its capabilities through becoming a Licensee of JRS 185, Java Technology for the Wireless Industry. As part of its license agreement with Sun, Kada has agreed to move all of its implementations to this platform over the next year and support the imperative of assuring a standard, reliable development and deployment platform on which mobile solutions providers can deliver innovative products and services. The JTWI specification, JSR 185, defines the industry standard platform for the next generation of Java technology-enabled mobile phones that includes CLDC, MIDP, and Mobile Media API (MMAPI) and Wireless Messaging API (WMA).
