- New Version of Celsius Extends Ease of J2ME Porting To 350 Mobile Devices -

France - 4th July 06 - Mobile Distillery (, a specialist Java mobile porting software company today announced the release of version 3.5 of its award-winning Celsius J2ME Porting and Optimizing software solution. Aimed at developers and publishers of J2ME mobile applications, Celsius uniquely addresses the time and expense associated with the porting of applications to more than 350 mobile devices. Celsius dramatically reduces porting time and subsequently accelerates time to market by a factor of two to three, giving customers competitive advantage as well as significant cost savings. New features of Celsius V3.5 include: Open & Plug-in architecture: ability for users to include own APIs, classes or external resources Extensive Debug and device monitoring tools: fully integrated with Sun's NetBean Java development tool, debug tags, JAR/HEAP/RMS size identification, etc. Powerful emulators: for testing HTTP connectivity: accessing remote servers, eg. for "hi scores" or databases. Porting applications is a major complication for developers. For each new device which a developer wishes to port to they need to make code changes and build specific work-arounds. With up to 8 new mobiles being introduced each month the problem keeps growing and has become a major distraction to core application development. Mobile Distillery's Celsius solution enables developers to put their main focus on application development. Celsius has already enabled more than 50 mobile games/applications to be produced across multiple handsets, including the latest games from: Finesse publishing, Recreate, TouchLink, Exkee, Lexis Mobile, Wizarbox, Visiware. Celsius has also been used to extend the reach of multimedia applications for Axellance, and Anxa, and business applications for Mobilysim and Amadeus/Philips. Eric Lemarechal, co-founder and CEO, Mobile Distillery said: "The latest version of Celsius is the cumulative work of five years technology development. As the number of devices proliferates and the amount of post production work required to deliver applications to operators increases, developers and publishers need proven and reliable solutions to take care of fragmentation. Significant effort has been put into V3.5 to give developers more visibility to device level bugs and characteristics along with the tools necessary to manage them." For Publishers, Celsius provides an invaluable tool to manage outsourced projects. Celsius V3.5 has a built-in Publisher oriented Asset Management features, which give greater overall consistency and the ability to clearly define specific guidelines and settings to partner developers. Mobile Distillery is holding a series of free Celsius V3.5 training sessions for new and existing users in Marseilles - France, on July 26 & 27. The sessions will focus on developing, debugging and porting with Celsius V3.5, accelerating mobile application timing-to-market and highlighting next generation Porting tools.
