JBenchmark 2.0, the performance metric
for second-generation mobile Java devices released
The latest version of the
industry-standard JBenchmark that measures and compares Java 2 Platform, Micro
Edition (J2ME) compatible mobile devices was released today. JBenchmark 2.0 tests
the graphical performance of devices compliant with the Mobile Information Device Profile
(MIDP) version 2.0, such as cellular phones, two-way pagers, and communicators.
(PRWEB) Benchmark 2.0 gives an overall
performance score for tested devices by calculating the geometric average of the results
of the following five sub-tests:
Image manipulation (RGB data manipulation and drawing)
Gaming scene (Sprites and Layers)
3D transformation (Shaded 3D polygons)
User interface speed (Business applications)
JBenchmark 2.0 not just measures, but
like its predecessor - lets users independently upload their results to
www.jbenchmark.com. Currently this is the largest open mobile java performance database on
the Internet with more than 120 tested devices and nearly 3000 results.

About J2ME and MIDP 2.0:
J2ME is a small footprint Java product designed by SunŽ Microsystems for
resource limited devices such as pagers and cell phones.
MIDP 2.0 is the second-generation mobile Java standard for the consumer market. It
supports more sophisticated graphical mobile applications like games and media viewers.
Hundreds of millions of cellular phones compliant with MIDP version 1.0 currently, the
first MIDP 2.0 devices entered the market in larger quantities last autumn.
