Startup to launch Java Virtual Machine for Palm

The company, Kada Systems, will offer both a JVM and the tools for building and running applications on the Palm.

"We're really betting on this explosion of smart handhelds and the need for applications," said Jim Acquaviva, company CEO.

Java developers can use their skills to build database applications, said Shekar Mantha, CTO of Kada. "We preserve the look and feel of the Palm," Mantha said.

Although the initial products work only with the Palm, Acquaviva said the company will release versions for the PocketPC and EPOC operating systems in June at the JavaOne Conference in San Francisco.

In spring, the company plans to roll out a version for Blackberry devices, and a Linux edition will follow sometime after that. "As we go forward, future versions will offer more on the handheld API side," Acquaviva added.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
