Interoperability: The goal of this effort is to deliver a predictable environment for application developers, and a deliverable set of capabilities for device manufacturers. Both benefit greatly by adopting the JTWI standard: manufacturers from a broad range of compatible applications, software developers from a broad range of devices that support their applications.
Clarification of security specification: The JSR 185 specification introduces a number of clarifications for untrusted applications with regard to the "Recommended Security Policy for GSM/UMTS-Compliant Devices" defined in the MIDP 2.0 specification. It extends the base MIDlet suite security framework defined in MIDP 2.0.
Road map: A key feature of the JTWI specification is the road map, an outline of common functionality that software developers can expect in JTWI-compliant devices. January 2003 saw the first in a series of road maps expected to appear at six- to nine-month intervals, which will describe additional functionality consistent with the evolution of mobile phones. The road map enables all parties to plan for the future with more confidence: carriers can better plan their application deployment strategy, device manufacturers can better determine their product plans, and content developers can see a clearer path for their application development efforts.
