Extending, Expanding, and Porting Mobile & Embedded Community Projects

Location: F150 Level: Intermediate

There are over 135 projects in the Mobile & Embedded Community though the focus initially was primarily on three projects, phoneME, cqME and JTHarness. Today the Mobile & Embedded core projects have been expands with Squawk (a Java VM for embedded devices), SPOTs (Small Programmable Object Technology), and OpenCable.

This talk will show how the core M&E Community projects have been the catalyst for numerous ports, extensions, and expanded open source uses not previously envisioned when the projects were launched.

Examples topics will include:

phoneME Feature as the basis of Squawk
phoneME Advanced ports to Windows and GTK devices
phoneME Advanced as the basis for JVTOS and BugLabs open phone
cqME as the basis for testing code beyond that conformance.
Squawk as the basis of nxtsquawk (a port for LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT)
SPOTs as the basis for a variety of research and development projects
OpenCable as the reference work for OCAP in the Cable industry.

The presentation will also show areas where the project owners have failed to provide the necessary resources for extensions and ports and the steps that are being taken to remedy those problems.

The end goal is to encourage and foster further development of M&E community projects through extensions, expansions, and ports.
