Last minute happenings at BREW include Javaground's announcement that its application allows developers to port Java into BREW and the ITC's spoil-sport ruling that it will not stay the ban it levied against Qualcomm.Earlier today, the U.S. International Trade Commission rained on Qualcomm's home-town festival by upholding the ban barring Qualcomm from importing certain chips that infringe on a Broadcom patent. Just yesterday, Qualcomm CEO Dr. Paul Jacobs reiterated the company's strategy in seeking remediation from the appeals courts and the President. Qualcomm refused to comment on the latest development in its battle against Broadcom.
In slightly better news, Javaground showed off a solution that helps bridge the gap between Java and BREW. The solution ports Java/J2ME applications to C/C++.
"For non-BREW publishers and developers needing a way to showcase their products on the BREW platform, the Javaground Solution can help make the conversion process easier and progress in a more time-sensitive fashion," said Christophe Bernard, staff manager, developer relations for Qualcomm Internet Services. "Using Javaground's BREW porting Solution, publishers and developers are able to increase their visibility and target additional consumers with their products."
