KDDI's EZfactory site has some limited technical details about it:
http://www.au.kddi.com/ezfactory/tec/spec/openappli.html (J only)
Beyond that I don't know what other specific technical docs KDDI
might have available for developers; but I do know that it's
basically just a Brew port of the Aplix JBlend VM.
Aplix put out a press release about it a few months ago:
Knowing that a good number of third-party developers are pretty
frustrated with the Brew development process, I'd guess that
having the option of developing Java apps for the Open-Appli
Player (or repurposing existing Java apps they've already
developed) is going to make a lot of them pretty happy.
I'm sure there are some limitations. For one thing, I'd wonder
about the performance of apps running on it -- given that they're
running in a VM which is in turn running on top of Brew.
Anyway, as far as other specific info about the Brew port of
JBlend, it looks like it's been available for a year or more:
And there are a few more more details about it here:
And you can find a few articles by doing a search for
