US mobile computing company Relay Technologies is expected to unveil a product in the first half of next year, the will allow users to cache Java applets to their client hard drives. But bigger names, including Microsoft, will be hard on its heels.
Using Java Thermos, salespeople - for example - could cache an order entry applet to a laptop and then work on it while on a plane or in a taxi. The software, which will run on clients and servers, will include agents that prepare a list of designated applets from the server before caching, substantially reducing download time and network traffic.
The company is thought to be ahead of Microsoft and Netscape in the development of this technology and has said that it will be in a position to offer a core set of popular applets by June next year.
