Development of collaborative applications for mobile phones: Implementation of the voice messaging system (VMS) using the Peer2Me framework
MetadataShow full item record
This study presents the implementation of a voice messaging system using the Peer2Me framework. Voice messaging system (VMS) is an attempt for a new era of communication which is an intuitive-to-use service that adds an emotional and personal dimension to messaging. It enables the user to send voice messages in a peer-to-peer network. One of the objectives of designing VMS is to use the Peer2Me framework which is a framework for developing mobile collaborative applications on mobile phones. For this purpose an initial background study of the framework, central concepts, related technology and state of the art was carried out. We started with the realization of the idea of the VMS by defining its functional and quality requirements, software architecture and high level design. The implementation was carried out in MIDP/J2ME. The application was tested throughout the implementation process and a system test was performed on real phones on completion of the implementation phase. At the end we evaluated our work, discussed the problems we encountered, answered our research questions, gave our conclusions and described further work that could be carried out on the VMS. (All source code of the VMS is attached along with this report).
