Updated on September 7 2010: Many thanks for your many suggestions and comments on our new, proposed Trusted Status. We’ll be considering all of the input and announcing at JavaOne exactly how it’ll work, plus opening it up for people to apply. Thanks again.
We’ve just announced Trusted Status: a privileged status (to be made available from JavaOne in September 2010) to be granted to developers who will have proven that the quality of their Java ME apps is of a consistently high standard. These are developers who will have earned the trust of Java Verified by demonstrating unfailingly that testing to the UTC standard is a crucial part of their product development activity.
But before we go any further, we want to consult with you.
Please read the pdf . The areas we’re really keen on hearing from you about are highlighted in yellow.
Basically, Java Verified developers who are awarded Trusted Status will no longer need to use one of the three accredited test houses to test their applications, and will no longer need to declare the test results. They will have gained the trust of Java Verified that their apps will consistently pass the criteria.
So please let us know what you think by having a dialogue with Java Verified and other developers, carriers and OEMs using this blog.
We’ll be closing off this post for comments on September 6 so we can take in all of your input and then open up Trusted Status for developers to apply on September 20.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts. We look forward to the discussions!
