Rococo Software Q409

  1. 1. Rococo Software Java/Bluetooth Product Background Sean O Sullivan | CEO | © Rococo Software 2000-2009
  2. 2. Rococo Software : Facts and Figures Founded February 2000 Employees 10 Sector Wireless Infrastructure Software and Tools Technology Wireless Java (J2ME), Bluetooth, JSR82, Social Proximity Awards Infoconomy, Frost and Sullivan Standards and Bluetooth SIG, Java Community Process (JCP), Irish Bluetooth Affiliations Users Forum (IBUF) © Rococo Software 2000-2009
  3. 3. Background Easy! • Mission – Let’s make it 100 times easier to create Bluetooth Applications Too Hard! • Why? – All Bluetooth Stack APIs Bluetooth Apps proprietary in Java • How? – Help create a Java/Bluetooth JABWT/JSR-82 APIs standard – Create Developer Tools that Java Virtual Machine support this standard – License an implementation of this Integration layer standard to handset and other equipment manufacturers Bluetooth Stack Operating System © Rococo Software 2000-2009
  4. 4. Impronto™ • Goal – Make it easy to build, deploy and manage Bluetooth applications • How – Create Java-Based framework that abstracts low level networking issues – Allow programmers to focus on application issues • Product Range – Simulator – Development Kit – Technology Licensing Kit (TLK) © Rococo Software 2000-2009
  5. 5. Impronto Products • Impronto Simulator Build – Enables rapid development of Bluetooth Applications in Java Test – No Bluetooth hardware required – Integrates with development environments from hardware vendors (Palm, Debug Compaq, Nokia, Ericsson, Siemens, etc.) Simulator • Impronto Development Kit (DK) – Enables deployment of applications onto hardware – Windows and Linux Support • Impronto Technology Licensing Kit (TLK) – Java/Bluetooth OEM offering for manufacturers or suppliers in equipment value-chain • Phone, Handset, PDA, Automotive Platform, Set Top Box, Industrial,… – Enables rapid creation of JSR82 support in target product line • Products have in common that they support the standard set of APIs for Deploy using Bluetooth from Java (JSR82, or JABWT) DevKit © Rococo Software 2000-2009
  6. 6. JABWT - Java APIs for Bluetooth Wireless Technology • Java Community Process (JCP) defines new Java Standards – JABWT Expert Group started January 2001, completed March 2002 • Standard referred to as JSR-82 – Chaired by Motorola; other members include Rococo, Nokia, Ericsson, Mitsubishi, Extended Systems – Profiles supported : GAP, SDAP, SPP, GOEP • JABWT provides an API-based standard for using Bluetooth from Java – Every Bluetooth stack has a different API - switching stacks implies rewriting perhaps 70% of your code – The JABWT API enables the development of genuinely portable Bluetooth applications © Rococo Software 2000-2009
  7. 7. Impronto simulator – product overview • A simulator for developing, testing and configuring Java Bluetooth applications • Platforms supported – Windows, Unix, Linux, etc. (anywhere Java runs) • Enables Bluetooth application development – without having to buy Bluetooth hardware – Bluetooth network is simulated in software – GUI, Logging, Configuration tools speed application development © Rococo Software 2000-2009
  8. 8. Impronto simulator – features • Complete JABWT Simulation Environment – Including virtual device (‘vstack’) for accessing HCI, RFCOMM, L2CAP, SDP, etc. • Management GUI – Tracking & controlling run-time behaviour • Configuration GUI – Controlling configurable aspects of virtual device – XML schema for representation of configuration • Supports point-to-point and multipoint • Full logging capability – Developer has detailed control to watch for and log specific events © Rococo Software 2000-2009
  9. 9. Impronto DevKit– features • DevKit enables deployment of Java/Bluetooth applications onto a mobile device Java/Bluetooth App • Current Platform Support – Windows and Linux • Full implementation of JABWT JABWT/ JSR-82 APIs DevKit – Device & Service Discovery (HCI & SDP) – I/O (RFCOMM & L2CAP) Java Virtual Machine – OBEX – Bluetooth Control Centre (BCC – security, device control) Integration layer • Additional Impronto ease-of-use abstractions Bluetooth Stack – E.g. UUID generation, access to additional stack functionality – Supports J2SE, in addition to J2ME OS © Rococo Software 2000-2009
  10. 10. Impronto TLK • OEM Product – Targeted at Equipment TLK Ref Implementation Manufacturers, Handset supply chain • Includes Application Code – Full JABWT implementation – Full Test Suite BTAPI Java Code – Porting Guide BTAPI-common – Utilities Package BTAPI-<impl> • Customer chooses target VM, Bluetooth Stack and Operating System Platform VM • Focused Services available to assist or deliver implementation Porting layer interface – Rococo Engineering Team will port, test, and integrate full solution based on TLK *NI (JNI or KNI) C Code • Dramatically reduces time to produce a impl tested and integrated Java/Bluetooth solution – Passed full JSR82 TCK (multiple times, Bluetooth Stack (BlueZ, ericsson, Simulator) multiple platforms) • Option to add Simulator for developer community Operating System © Rococo Software 2000-2009
  11. 11. Rococo, Java, Bluetooth - 100M and counting • Member of the expert group that defined JABWT/JSR82 – January 2001 – April 2002 • World’s first implementation of JABWT/JSR82 – Simulator 1.0 March 2002 (patented) – First Development Kit Linux November 2002 • Shipping in volume in handsets – 150M+ units shipped since Q404 – Motorola, Samsung, SonyEricsson, … • World’s most deployed, tested independent JABWT/JSR82 implementation © Rococo Software 2000-2009
