Bling software: Over the air mobile ajax client ..

bling.JPG

I met Roy Satterthwaite, CEO Bling Software when I spoke at the O Reilly Web 2.0 expo,

Increasingly, the space of ‘Javascript running on top of Java APIs’ is becoming quite crowded with Sun itself getting into the ring with Java FX. However, Bling is unique because it’s client can be distributed over the air!

I have yet to see another company making that claim and it could be disruptive because it solves the client distribution problem and widens the scope of the target audience. I would be interested to hear any views about this approach(or anyone else who claims similar)

From their web site

Bling Software is the first and only technology vendor to develop a fully extensible, cross platform, JavaScript interpreter for the mobile handset that is small enough to be distributed with content to consumers over-the-air.

    Hello Ajit,
    I am glad to see that finally you agree that mobile ajax is not only mobile browser! Webwag has launched the first real web/mobile widget engine available on some J2me handsets. You can test it here: http://beta.webwag.com
    Standard based, scripting language, http request, XML desclaration, connection to web service, mobile/web synchronisation, etc…..
