Ericsson and BenQ Target IMS services for Java-enabled Mobile Handsets

Ericsson and BenQ Mobile will lead the specification development in the Java Community Process (JCP) to define IMS services for Java-enabled mobile handsets. JCP's Java Micro-Edition has approved the specification request submitted by Ericsson and Siemens Mobile Handsets (today BenQ Mobile). The specification (JSR-281, IMS Services API) will define a high-level Java Application Programming Interface (API) that will offer service-level support to enable easy development of IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) applications.

The companies said using Java for IMS services will allow operators and application developers to easily create and deploy new IMS-based services.

The JSR-281 will consist of at least three types of functionality: high-level IMS core functionality, Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) services, and Group List Management services.

Jorgen Lantto, Vice President, Strategic Product Management, Ericsson Mobile Platforms, said "Making IMS capabilities available for Java developers will allow the wide community of Java application developers to rapidly bring interactive multimedia services to consumers. We expect that this will speed up the commercial launch of IMS by mobile operators and terminal vendors."http://www.ericsson.com
