Platforms and tools for Web Services and Mobile Applications J2ME based Applications : 

Platforms and tools for Web Services and Mobile Applications J2ME based Applications Bent Thomsen Aalborg University 3rd and 4th of June 2004

Java 2 Platform Architecture: 

Java 2 Platform Architecture

J2ME Configuration Defined: 

J2ME Configuration Defined Defines a minimum platform for a horizontal grouping of devices Similar requirements on memory and processing power Defines the Java Language and VM features available on group of devices

Configurations and Profiles: 

Configurations and Profiles “A Configuration is a specification that defines a minimum Java Platform functionality for a family of devices. It defines the minimum number of Java libraries, VM capabilities, Security specification, and a Generic Connection Framework.” “A Profile is a collection of Java APIs that supplement a Configuration to provide capabilities for a specific device group or market type.”

Available J2MEConfigurations: 

Available J2MEConfigurations Connected Device Configuration (CDC) Used by devices that are more powerful than the low end devices such as cell phones Example set-top boxes, certain PDAs, … Connected, Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) Used for very resource constrained devices Example, cell phones, two way pagers, …

CLDC Java Virtual Machine: 

CLDC Java Virtual Machine Sun’s Kilo Virtual Machine (KVM) Designed for small resource-constrained devices Small memory footprint (60K) for KVM Minimum total memory 160K 16/32-bit processors Processor speed 8 to 32 MHZ

CLDC Hardware: 

CLDC Hardware Memory size is the only requirement for CLDC At least 128K non-volatile for the KVM and CLDC Libraries At least 32K of volatile for KVM runtime

J2ME Profiles: 

J2ME Profiles Defines requirements for a specific vertical market family of devices Extends or is Layered on top of a configuration Defines a standard Java platform for a vertical market device family, to ensure interoperability Includes more granular domain specific class libraries that a configuration

Available J2ME Profiles: 

Available J2ME Profiles Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) delivers an enhanced user interface, multimedia and game functionality, end-to-end security, and greater networked connectivity to mobile phones and entry level PDAs Foundation Profile set of Java APIs that support resource-constrained devices without a standards-based GUI system Personal Profile Together with CDC and Foundation Profile, Personal Profile provides a complete application environment for the high-end PDA market. Personal Profile contains the full set of AWT APIs, including support for applets and Xlets. Personal Basis Profile provides a J2ME application environment for network-connected devices supporting a basic level of graphical presentation

MIDP Hardware: 

MIDP Hardware Memory (added to CLDC memory) 128K non-volatile for MIDP components 8K non-volatile for application persistent data 32K volatile for KVM Display Screen 96x54 Display depth 1-bit Pixel shape (aspect ratio) 1:1

MIDP Hardware: 

MIDP Hardware Input (one or more) One-handed keypad Two-handed keypad Touch screen Networking Two-way Wireless Possibly intermittent Limited bandwidth

MIDP Architecture: 

MIDP Architecture Mobile Information Device (MID) CLDC MIDP Native System Software/Host Operating System MIDP Applications OEM-Specific Applications OEM-Specific Classes Native Applications

Class Libraries : 

Class Libraries CLDC java.lang java.io java.util javax.microedition.io MIDP javax.microedition.lcdui javax.microedition.midlet javax.microedition.rms

MIDP Application Model: 

MIDP Application Model MIDlet is the basic application Similar to the J2SE applet GUI based MIDlet Suites – security for applications that share resources or data

MIDP Application Lifecycle: 

MIDP Application Lifecycle MIDP applications are known as “MIDlets” MIDlets move from state to state in the lifecycle, as indicated. Start – acquire resources and start executing Pause – release resources and become quiescent (wait) Destroy – release all resources, destroy threads, and end all activity

Typical J2ME Technology Stack: 

Typical J2ME Technology Stack

Tour of CLDC/MIDP : 

Tour of CLDC/MIDP Packages Javax.microedition.io Javax.microedition.lcdui Javax.microedition.midlet Javax.microedtion.rms Contains user interface widgets Form, TextField, TextBox, DateField, List, Image, Gauge, Alert, Canvas, Graphics, Display Event handling classes – Command and CommandListener Two APIs, high and low High level for GUI widgets, scrolling, etc. Low level for graphics and fine-grained UI control

Sample Code : 

Sample Code import javax.microedition.lcdui.*; import javax.microedition.midlet.*; public class HiMIDlet extends MIDlet { private TextBox textbox; public HiMIDlet() { textbox = new TextBox ("", "Hello World!", 20, 0); } public void startApp() { Display.getDisplay(this).setCurrent(textbox); } public void pauseApp() {} public void destroyApp(boolean unconditional) {} }

I: Code example: Simpel GUI: 

I: Code example: Simpel GUI import javax.microedition.midlet.*; import javax.microedition.lcdui.*; public class HelloWorld extends MIDlet implements CommandListener { private Form mainscreen; private Form detailsscreen; private Display myDisplay; private Command exitCommand; private Command resetCommand; private Command detailsCommand;

II: Code example: Simpel GUI: 

II: Code example: Simpel GUI public HelloWorld(){ myDisplay = Display.getDisplay(this); mainscreen = new Form("Hello World"); detailsCommand = new Command("Details",Command.SCREEN, 1); resetCommand = new Command("Reset",Command.SCREEN,1); exitCommand = new Command("Exit", Command.EXIT, 1); StringItem strItem = new StringItem("Hello", " World"); mainscreen.addCommand(detailsCommand); mainscreen.addCommand(resetCommand); mainscreen.addCommand(exitCommand); mainscreen.append(strItem); mainscreen.setCommandListener(this); }

III: Code example: Simpel GUI: 

III: Code example: Simpel GUI public void startApp() { myDisplay.setCurrent(mainscreen); } protected void pauseApp() { } protected void destroyApp(boolean unconditional) { }

IV: Code example: Simpel GUI: 

IV: Code example: Simpel GUI public void commandAction(Command c, Displayable s) { if (c == exitCommand) { destroyApp(false); notifyDestroyed(); } else if (c == detailsCommand) { detailsscreen = new Form("Details"); detailsscreen.addCommand(resetCommand); detailsscreen.setCommandListener(this); myDisplay.setCurrent(detailsscreen); } else if (c == resetCommand) { myDisplay.setCurrent(mainscreen); } } }

Creating J2ME Applications: 

Creating J2ME Applications Identify the devices Identify the profiles supported by devices Develop the Application Using the MID profile, the application will target cell phones and pagers Write an application that displays the String “Hello, Small World!” Requires the environment; MIDP reference implementation http://java.sun.com/products/midp/ Will run in the MIDP emulator

Developing J2ME Wireless Applications : 

Developing J2ME Wireless Applications Use ktoolbar to create a project Configure the Midlet Build and Run the project MIDlet class, the application-level class Abstract, need to define methods startApp() pauseApp() destryApp(boolean unconditional)

Sun’s J2ME Wireless Toolkit: 

Sun’s J2ME Wireless Toolkit To run the toolkit itself, select the KToolbar shortcut. You should see the following screen.

Sun’s J2ME Wireless Toolkit: 

Sun’s J2ME Wireless Toolkit The J2ME Wireless Toolkit works with projects, where the end result of each project is one MIDlet suite. The toolkit works with one project at a time. You can change properties of the current project, build the project, and run the project in a device emulator. Several example projects come installed with the toolkit; we'll look at these later. Let's jump right in the water by creating a new project. Click on New Project in the button bar. The toolkit prompts you for a project name and the name of a MIDlet class in the project. Fill in HelloSuite and HelloMIDlet as shown below.

Security: 

Security J2ME Cannot support full J2SE security model J2SE protection domain model is larger than the entire CLDC implementation So how’s security implemented in J2ME? Split the security model into two parts Low-level-virtual machine security Guaranteed by the CLDC Two-Phase class file verifier Application level security Sandbox model

Low-level VM Security: Two-Phase Class Verification : 

Low-level VM Security: Two-Phase Class Verification Off-device verification Pre-verification tool add “stack map” attribute to each method in Java class file Pre-verification is performed on server or desktop system before class file is downloaded to the device This “stack map” helps to facilitate in-device verification Faster verification process Less VM code and memory consumption In-device verification Environment verification (e.g. memory req. to run app.) Byte code check Type check Proper termination (no unconditional Jump instruction)

Two-Phase Class File Verification Process: 

Two-Phase Class File Verification Process Stack map attribute increases the size of a classfile by appro. 5%

Application-level Security: Sandbox model : 

Application-level Security: Sandbox model Application must run in closed environment in which app can only access those APIs defined by Configuration, Profiles and licensee open classes supported by the device More specifically sandbox model means: Class files have been properly verified and guaranteed to be valid Ensures that only the mandated Java APIs are available to applications as defined by CLDC, Profile and licensee’s extension classes Application download occurs at the native code level – JAM Cannot override class loading mechanism Set of native functions accessible to the VM is closed

J2ME to J2EE Overview : 

J2ME to J2EE Overview Data persistence possible on the client, server or both Client MIDP Record Management System (RMS) APIs allows for data storage that is persistent on the device HTTP provides the bridge between J2ME (MIDP) and the J2EE Platform Both Platforms use HTTP/HTTPS (MIDP 1.0.3) MIDP supports HTTP 1.1 and APIs for generating GET, POST, and HEAD requests Messages may tunnel through different protocols that are transparent to the client and server MIDlet can send any Message Format in the body of a HTTP request XML, Text, binary, … Mime-types are used to indicate body format/type

J2ME to J2EE Overview Continued : 

J2ME to J2EE Overview Continued Areas to Consider for J2ME to J2EE Communications Session: Sequence of service requests by single user using a client to access server State: Information maintained in the session across requests. Ex: Contents of Shopping Cart Personalization data: Information about the user, such as address, SSN, etc… This information does not normally change from session to session, thus a J2ME application should use it to enhance the user’s experience.

J2ME to J2EE Overview Continued : 

J2ME to J2EE Overview Continued Managing Session States for MIDlet to J2EE Communications HTTP is a stateless protocol. The Java Servlet API provides a HTTPSession object to work around this limitation J2EE App Servers use 3 methods to maintain integrity of HTTP Sessions: Using Cookies Using URL Rewriting Using HTTPS MIDP Devices can use all these 3 methods Managing Personalization Data for MIDlets Session Management may be transient Personalization data by nature is Persistent Major benefit of utilizing Personalization is fewer interaction for the user

J2ME Connection Types: 

J2ME Connection Types HTTP/HTTPS Very simple to use XML over HTTP/HTTPS Beginning to be a viable choice due to varying parsers available Model Creates an object representation of a document in memory (e.g., DOM) Push Parses through an entire document, spitting out events to registered listeners (e.g., SAX) Pull Parses a little at a time, returning a single element or tag

Wireless Web Services APIs (1): 

Wireless Web Services APIs (1) J2ME Web Services (JSR 172) Public review No API available yet J2ME Web Services specification goals Access remote SOAP/XML based web services Does not support web service hosting capabilities JAX-RPC subset Must support stub based invocation (stub created using WSDL) No support yet for Dynamic proxies and Dynamic Invocation Interface (DII) No asynchronous messaging with attachment support Not required to support Java beans Provides parsing XML data JAXP subset Must support SAX 2.0 (with exceptions) Must not support DOM

Wireless Web Services APIs 1 (2): 

Wireless Web Services APIs 1 (2) SOAP and J2ME J2ME has only limited string functionalities, a problem for every wireless java XML parser J2ME/CLDC lacks support Float datatypes SOAP parsing requires to read the whole document kSOAP & kXML kSOAP API with Small footprint kSOAP is open source and based on kXML Adds support for data types not supported by J2ME kXML Non validating XML pull parser

MIDlet, J2EE Deployment, and Provisioning to Device: 

MIDlet, J2EE Deployment, and Provisioning to Device On the J2EE side, the JSPs, Servlets and any other J2EE components such as EJBs are packaged in a JAR file, which along with any WARs go in an EAR file together with a deployment descriptor You can use the many tools that many App Servers provide to accomplish the packaging MIDP application (code and any resources) packaged into a JAR file a JAD file accompanies the JAR file Over The AIR (OTA) Provisioning provides guidelines for deploying the MIDlet on MIDP devices
