Thanks for all your input. The blog post closed on Friday September 17.
Do we need to change the tests outlined in the Unified Testing Criteria document? Should some tests be made optional? Should some tests be removed altogether? Should some be added?
We're keen to understand your thoughts ... based on your experience of developing Java ME apps. This is your opportunity to tell us what you think.
Please read the information below, go to the blog, read the Unified Testing Criteria (UTC) and then comment via the blog by Friday September 17th. Thank you.
For a Java ME app to be awarded the Java Verified endorsement, it needs to have passed every test outlined within the Unified Testing Criteria (UTC) document. An app that has met the criteria will then run on the relevant devices, and will provide a consistently good user experience without causing trouble to the user or the device.
The UTC was developed and is regularly updated by the Java Verified members (AT&T, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Oracle, Orange, Samsung and Vodafone). It defines and explains the tests covering: Application Launch, User Interface, Localisation, Functionality, Connectivity, Personal Information Management and Security which - when passed - will ensure the application will work on the target devices without causing problems to the user.
