A group of companies have unveiled a software plan that uses Java to link cell phones and servers. The move is the second phase of a plan to standardize how cell phones and other mobile devices connect to the Internet. Now the plan has expanded to include all the top makers of software that runs Java programs on servers. The goal is for programmers writing server software to not worry about whether the person tapping into it is using a cell phone, a handheld computer or a desktop PC. AT&T Wireless, Cingular Wireless, Sun Microsystems, BEA Systems, IBM, Nokia, and several other companies are part of the initiative.
