The Java Verified programme has announced that Gameloft has become the first Java Verified Trusted Status developer. As one of the biggest users of the Java Verified standard, testing several hundred applications each year, Gameloft has earned Trusted Status by consistently demonstrating mobile applications of the highest quality by continuously meeting UTC (Unified Testing Criteria) requirements during the Java Verified testing process.
NOTE: “Java Verified is the industry-recognised Java testing and signing programme. Developers take their Java ME apps through a testing, signing and verification process through the Java Verified Submissions portal – if their apps meet the testing criteria, they’ll gain the Java Verified seal of approval.”
As a Trusted Status developer, Gameloft can now conduct app testing to UTC criteria on its own, without needing to go through a Java Verified-approved test house, a process that could cost between 75 and 250 dollars per application depending on the nature of the application and the test house the developer chooses to use.
“From apps for the iPhone, to apps based on Android and Java ME, Gameloft is committed to delivering mobile applications of the highest quality. We consider the Trusted Status will help Gameloft gain a competitive edge. It represents both a recognition of our company’s ability to develop Java ME applications to a high standard of quality and a way to reduce the costs and time of releasing these applications on the market,” said Andrei Vladimir Lascu, development manager (embedded content) for EMEA & APAC, Gameloft.
“Java Verified is delighted to announce Gameloft as the first developer to gain Trusted Status for their Java ME apps. The hundreds of apps they submit to Java Verified for testing each year are consistently of a very high standard, which proves that QA is very much a part of their development process. That’s why we’ve awarded them Trusted Status, through which we know they’ll benefit enormously in terms of a significant saving of both cost and time,” said Pete Rembiszewski, Java Verified Chair.
