London, Ontario, November 20, 2007: Premium game developer Big Blue Bubble Inc. ( www.bigbluebubble.com) proudly announces the commercial release of its highly anticipated J2ME to BREW porting tool, B3Xpresso.
The B3Xpresso porting system is the culmination of the best porting practices and procedures employed by the award-winning mobile game engineers at Big Blue Bubble Inc. Integrating seamlessly with your current build chain, this solution will instantly convert J2ME source code and resources to BREW C++ at any point during development, significantly reducing time to market. Without the cost of a second development team, the B3Xpresso porting system provides all the benefits of synchronized cross-platform development. Functional testing can be performed on a J2ME source base and cover BREW, reducing the cost of QA.
“B3Xpresso brings a fresh approach to the J2ME to BREW porting process. Unlike other solutions on the market, our technology allows customers to continue using the same J2ME development framework, tools and coding practices that they are already used to. Our tool will generate clean and readable BREW C++ code and project files; it will also automatically convert all the resources. Changes can be made directly in the J2ME source or in the resulting BREW code at any point during development.”, said Damir Slogar, CEO of Big Blue Bubble.
“Our R&D team has spent several weeks testing B3Xpresso by porting J2ME games from various developers and the average time required to get fully working BREW builds was less than a day”, he added.
