Abstract: Recent trends in e-finance have shown that mobile technology is growing and with this comes new opportunities for deploying new services for customers. Development of systems on mobile devices can require a lot more resources in the form of development time. There is a lack of documentation as to the merits of leading development environments for mobile platforms. The objective here is to compare the implementation process of developing on each mobile device. We set about investigating the various properties through building an e-finance application on each platform and we offer recommendations for e-finance mobile developers as to which is most suitable.

 

Keywords: mobile platforms; software development platforms; enterprise application development; e-finance; pervasive computing; electronic finance; mobile communications; mobile phones; cell phones; windows mobile; JAVA ME; Android.
