As mobile devices become more wide spread, making available
software for such devices is crucial for making use of their
capabilities. However, due to the inherent constraints of mobile
devices, it is highly non trivial to do so. Especially for
larger software projects, additional support for the development
and deployment phase is required. Therefore, in this paper, we
propose a system that provides such support, i.e., the
Software Station. The systems requirements result from the
analysis of our project environment.
On the one hand, the development of software components is
based upon a version control system. On the other hand, a web
based interface facilitates the automated yet flexible
deployment of software components to the respective mobile
devices. We highlight design and implementation issues of the
Software Station. In this context, our experiences with the
applied technologies and tools are shared.
