Ferndale, WA (PRWEB) May 18, 2006
Kishonti Informatics, the worldwide leader of mobile performance benchmarking, has announced availability of the beta version of JBenchmark Pro, the application performance and user experience benchmark for mobile Java (Java ME) devices. In developing the release, Kishonti partnered with leading companies like Aplix, Intel, Motorola, NVidia, SavaJe and Tao Group through its JBenchmark Development Program. JBenchmark Pro also meets growing demand from mobile network operators, developers and consumers for true Java ME performance, compatibility and usability measurements. The final version of the software will be released this summer.
JBenchmark Pro is not just a benchmark, it's a testing environment for mobile devices, which can be easily extended in the future by adding new test plugins. Thanks to its modular structure customised test suites can be created in minutes. The official JBenchmark Pro suite comes with 40 different subtests packaged into several Test Groups.
User experience benchmarking
With JBenchmark Pro, Kishonti Informatics has extended its benchmarking aktivities to include usability and user experience measurements for mobile Java devices. The User Experience Test Group measures many features, including application startup, battery life and multimedia and file system load times, which are important and sometimes neglected features determining user experience and consumer loyalty.
Real world application performance
JBenchmark Pro not just simulates application patterns but contains full featured application engines with graphics and logic included. The Composite Test Group contains seven different application benchmarks including 2D and 3D games, business charts, image manipulaton and geographical mapping using vector graphics.
JBenchmark Pro includes separate High Level and Low Level Graphics Test Groups to help manufacturers and developers finding graphical bottlenecks in Java ME implementations. These tests concentrate on 2D and 3D rendering issues minimizing CPU workload on hardware accelerated platforms.
As mobile applications get more complex, consumers need more CPU power and effective Java virtual machine technology. The CPU and Logic tests help to estimate processing power by running computationally intensive algorythms such as chess game, shortest route search, image processing, zip compression and decompression, xml processing, game physics, financial and statistical calculations.
Beyond performance and usability tests JBenchmark Pro includes a very detailed System Analytics module which checks compatibilites with all known Java ME application programming interfaces (APIs), media formats and other hidden implementation features.
JBenchmark Pro is currently available in beta version. Those interested in trying the beta software should visit http://www.jbenchmark.com. General availability is scheduled for the summer of 2006.
