Everbody knows that Java is extremely successful in the mobile phone world. Over 250 million mobiles, i.e. over 300 models, support Java applications. The mobile market has so far been targeting the games by supporting a limited version of Java unfortunately not suitable for system and business applications. The market for mobile enterprise applications has therefore never taken off.

All this is however about to change. At then end of 2003 a mobile expert group (MEG) was formed within the OSGi Alliance. Within the group Nokia and Motorola are driving de development of an OSGi based standard for the next generation of smart phones. Reasons to form the group was the mobile phone manufacturers’ - faced with more mobile platforms and custom software adaptations than they can manage – need of a service platform that is scalable, flexible, reliable, and, most importantly, leaves a small footprint. Enterprises that want to deploy company-wide applications are today faced with a bewildering array of choices. A unified mobile platform will allow a new breed of applications to emerge. The OSGi specifications fulfill these requirements.

The OSGi Service Platform is an open, deployment platform which offers life cycle management for mobile applications and services. It enables operators, enterprises, and mobile device and application manufacturers to dynamically extend the platforms features after manufacturing. For example, an IT Manager can install new APIs or applications to employees's existing mobile devices over-the-air independently of the mobile phone model. This technology increases efficiency for enterprises and offers new business opportunities for developers. The Service Platform – i,.e. Knopflerfish Pro - also enables a new business model of client middleware; a model that surely will become a driving force within the industry

Makewave is of course part of the OSGi Mobile Expert Group and consequently has early access to all specifications. By taking part in MEG we also leverage the specification with our expertise.
