MExE - SMG4/3GPP T2 SWG1 - April 12 1999 Why is MExE important to WAP ? MExE will be THE recognised execution environment for 3rd. Parties by 3G. MExE will support service capability for VHE - Virtual Home Environment. MExE is important for GSM/UMTS and 3G. MExE brings JavaPhone and WAP together. MExE requirements must be in sync with WAP
MExE - SMG4/3GPP T2 SWG1 - April 12 1999 MExE-WAP Alignment 1. User Profile, Capability negotiation 2. Security - Execution, capabilities, certificate management/formats/infrastructure, domains/levels. 3. More input into MExE specs - (1), (2), WML and alignment of Java API’s. 4. WAP and MExE Timescales alignment. MExE - R98 - End of June 1999 MExE - R99 - End of December 2000.

MExE - SMG4/3GPP T2 SWG1 - April 12 1999 User Profile - MExE Vision Moving from Handset A to Handset B (user preferences) Personal information such as voicemail number, language preference, etc (retrieved from network or SIM) Capability/Content negotiation - Hardware Profile, Software Support (images, video, audio, etc), some user preferences - Java - internet - http based mechanisms (ME based and not portable) WAP - input needed User profile formats. - No work (USE WAP EFFORT) Some work on capability negotiation tokens - need to align with W3C and WAP User profile transfer mechanisms - No work Java User Profile API’s - April 30, 1999 Secure transfer of user profiles and actual mechanisms for transfer.
