Cloud9™, JAVA-based Operating System (C9OE)

Cloud9 is a JAVA-based group of software programs that acts as a smart operating environment for wired or wireless operations. Highly versatile and robust, this comprehensive off-the-shelf platform provides application designers with a sophisticated foundation layer that allows them to focus on value creation and differentiation. One base for any platform.

Built on the JAVA 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE), heavily multithreaded, C9OE allows several JAVA applications (called cells) to run inside a unique JAVA virtual machine. All configurations are based on XML– software configuration and remote update are supported.
