Nokia and Vodafone today announced a new initiative to simplify mobile Java standards. The initiative will function and create its specifications within the Java Community Process(SM). The first two Java Specification Requests from the initiative - JSRs 248 and 249 - include clarifications to existing specifications to define a consistent Java API services architecture. By using the specifications, developers can create software that is easily portable across mobile devices from different manufacturers. Siemens, Sony Ericsson, Sun Microsystems and T-Mobile International all support the effort.
