Softwired's iBus Mobile Now Supports the Google Android Operating System Developed under the Open Handset Alliance (OHA) for Mobile Devices, such as G1

Softwired released iBus Mobile 6.8.1, which supports devices based on the Android Mobile OS for SmartPhones, PDA’s and other mobile devices. iBus Mobile enables simple integration of Android OS based devices directly to any standards compliant enterprise Java J2EE application back-end system.

Free Trial versions:

Adding to Softwired’s existing support for Symbian based Java J2SE, J2ME, Windows .NET and .NET CF devices, iBus Mobile now includes a Softwired Android client library specifically for Android OS devices, based on Softwired’s well-established WJMS client, enabling reliable data communication even over fragile mobile networks. Softwired’s thin client libraries specifically developed for intelligent mobile devices with limited hardware capabilities are based on JMS semantics guaranteeing message delivery once and only once even over fragile data wireless networks.

Android OS is based on the Linux-kernel OS developed by Google and the Open Handset Alliance. Android allows developers to write managed code in Java using Google developed Java libraries. Although Android does not comply with Java compliant standards, such as Java SE and ME preventing compatibility among Java applications written for those platforms, Softwired’s Android client libraries ensure seamless compatibility with Java standards are maintained. The Softwired Android client libraries provide full-class libraries and API’s bundled with iBus Mobile.

Softwired developed its Android client specifically for deployment in mobile data communication allowing users [mobile devices] to be ‘on line’, enabling real time updates of personal and or corporate data resulting in greater flexibility. Standards based J[2]EE back ends systems easily integrate via the JMS API supported by iBus Mobile.

Softwired’s research shows burgeoning demand for high quality, open source mobile OS like Android OS enabled devices [e.g., HTC’s Dream as G1 on T-Mobile], as both personal and productivity tools for telematics, field force automation, and business process operations via J2EE platforms such as SAPWAS, Oracle AS, Sun, and JBoss etc.
