San Francisco; JavaOne — (press release excerpt) — Rococo Software announces an Early Adopter Program for Impronto Developer Kit, the world's first standards-based Java tool for developing Bluetooth applications.

To kick-off the program, Rococo is demonstrating Impronto DK, Palm OS Edition at JavaOne with a Palm-based instant messenger. The messaging application, written with Impronto DK, allows real-time instant messaging with a Bluetooth-enabled Palm . . .

Impronto Developer Kit (DK) for both Palm OS and Linux implement standard Java APIs for Bluetooth Wireless Technology (JABWT). A wireless application written with Impronto DK will run on any standard Bluetooth Java platform without making changes to the code. “Impronto DK extends the core premise of Java–write once, run anywhere,” said CTO and Rococo co-founder, Karl McCabe . . .
