it really a good news.

> Dear KVMers -

> feedback would be great.... read below (an excerpt from my blog)...
> During the month of December 2006 two very important Java ME
> specificationsmilestones were reached:
> 1. MIDP3 (JSR 271) entered the Early Draft Review phase
> 2. Mobile Service Architecture (JSR 248) is now final release
> MIDP3 is introducing a number of interesting features, as described below;
> features that wkvmere really needed by the developer community.
> And when taking both MSA and MIDP3 into consideration, together they have
> the *potential* of changing the mobile handset and application's
> landscape; Java already is in millions of handsets worldwide, but it was
> lacking some richness in functionality and APIs that many of us are betting
> that MIDP3 + MSA will address. There will be kinks, across implementations,
> across handset vendors. There will be political and licensing issues that we
> must all survive through. And there are other APIs not included in MIDP3 and
> MSA that are of interest, but we must start somewhere, and MIDP3 + MSA
> should set the stage for the next generation of mobile computing and
> >From article The Mobile Service Architecture Specification:
> "MSA is a complete architecture for mobile services. Like its predecessor,
> JSR 185: Java Technology for the Wireless Industry, MSA is an umbrella over
> a collection of familiar, updated, and new JSRs that cooperate to support
> applications with a wide range of standardized capabilities. It broadens the
> architecture defined by JSR 185 to incorporate new technologies for
> high-volume mobile devices. To ensure greater compatibility among
> implementations, MSA also documents a set of clarifications that removes or
> reduces ambiguities that have been uncovered in some JSRs."
> MIDP3 is the next generation of the Mobile Information Device Profile, the
> most popular and pervasive Java ME profile; and it will continue to be so
> for a long time. MIDP3 is introducing a number of great features, and I
> can't wait. Below are some of the new features:
> - New MIDlet packaging and provisioning improvements
> - MIDP on top of CDC
> - MIDlet Concurrency, background MIDlets, screen saver MIDlet, and
> MIDlet launching
> - New RMS features such as support for record tagging and fast
> access, removable RMS, and other
> - Inter-MIDlet communication and events
> - Support for shared libraries (LIBlets) - this is huge, and was a
> considered pre-MIDP2; good to see it included
> - UI API improvements and gadgets
> - HTTP connection changes to include support PUT and DELETE in
> support of REST-like web services
> - Much more -- see the specification and the Javadoc
> >From the MIDP3 specification: "MIDP 3.0 is designed to operate on top of
> the Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC), which is described in
> CLDC 1.1 (JSR 139), but will also work on top of CLDC 1.0 (JSR 139) or CDC
> 1.1 (JSR 218). It is anticipated that most MIDP 3.0 implementations will
> be based on CLDC 1.1."
> Note that the EG decided to split some of the original *network-specific*requirements/features into its own specification, JSR
> 307: Network Mobility and Mobile Data API,
> which will define the APIs and other for initiating and controlling data
> sessions in a mobile device and providing applications control over wireless
> network selection.
> *The EG **Needs You!*
> Right now is the time for you to provide feedback to the MIDP3 EG. After
> this early review period ends, the EG will take into consideration all the
> gathered feedback, and include it or not in the specification, and then the
> specification will go public. *The MIDP3 review closes on 5 February 2007*.

> future of Java on handsets, reviewing this JSR and providing feedback should
> be one of your priorities. The time is now. Send comments to
