Motorola is frustrated by the disunity in the Java developer community and has decided to do something about it: open source its Java test framework and sample test cases. Carriers, developers and manufacturers are all privy to the information. The vendor also plans to develop reference implementation and compliance tests that will lead to a "write once, run everywhere" environment that encourages more developers to create mobile apps. Motorola has long been a champion of Java in the U.S.: It brought the first Java-enabled handsets here in 1991.
