Description - Software Development for the QUALCOMM BREW Platform by Ray Rischpater
Software Development for the QUALCOMM BREW Platform provides a soup-to-nuts examination of what it takes to design, develop, and deploy commercially viable applications for the QUALCOMM BREW platform. This new platform for wireless development is the solutions for delivering video and color games onto cell phones as you have seen in television advertisements. QUALCOMM Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless (BREW) is a development platform that allows software developers to create applications that operate on all handsets that utilize the QUALCOMM CDMA chipsets. With over a million BREW-enabled handsets having shipped in the first year of BREW's availability and successful deployment with both a major domestic carrier (Verizon Wireless, with over five million subscribers) and overseas carriers (Telesp and KTF, with other carriers presently running trials with BREW), BREW is poised to become an important player in the wireless handset space.
BREW offers a number of key advantages over other software environments for today's handsets to both carriers and software developers, including secure application licensing, integrated billing for application purchases, and down-to-the-metal APIs for high-performance applications including multimedia and gaming applications. Software Development for the QUALCOMM BREW Platform will begin with an introduction to BREW and how it differs from its competitors (J2ME, Palm OS, Symbian, and Pocket PC Phone Edition). After this orientation, the reader learns about what it takes to develop applications for BREW - not just development tools, but the methodology required to bring an application to a carrier for distribution.
