I have been scouring the IBM web site and all JCOP documentation,
support and downloads have pretty much disappeared from view. I've
emailed several email addresses at IBM and not had any reply.
I really need to know an 'official' route to get these tools.
NXP handles that now.
Afraid not, I got the tools right before IBM moved its site.
Google "nxp jcop tools" and you get an email at least.
IBM's web site for JCOP is a big mess, I know. Looks pretty ugly and one
gets the sense the technology has been abandoned from all the out of date
information and broken links. I sure hope this isn't the case, since a lot
of developers are working with JCOP and it is an excellent platform with
very useful tools like the JCOP Shell.
As far as I know, the jcop tools for Eclipse (plug-in) are still available
for free, but they are export controlled so you will have to contact IBM
first and go through their route for ordering the tools.
I have found a note from IBM that as of July 2007, all inquiries should be
directed to: tools.jcop at nxp dot com
Previously, the email address was: scard at de.ibm dot com
Try contacting both
We really wanted to start supporting JCOP by having a stock of cards
manufactured and offering them to developers so as to make it easier for
them to get started, but if manufacturers want to make it so difficult
to get any level of support it seems pretty pointless. If I, as an
industry 'insider' cannot get anywhere what hope does a relative newbie
Anyway, sorry for the rant and thanks again for the tips. Will keep
