STANDARD: Borland's try to simplify code signing for mobile devices
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:07 CET under 01 - General News

UK based online magazine "The Register" has an interesting article about application code signing for mobile devices and a round table, initiated by Borland:

Telcos and ISVs are formulating a set of industry-wide standards for mobile applications.
The certification of mobile applications could be enforced by different authorities during the next 12 months, according to Borland at a roundtable discussion at its BorCon developers' conference on Tuesday, 4 November.

These discussions are in response to an explosion in the pace of application development for mobile platforms that is expected to grow in time.

While certification and standards do exist - for Brew and Java 2 Micro Edition with the Mobile Device Information Profile (MIDP) - these do not cover all software or all hardware.
