Getting started with Tru2way development

A recent post on the Sun Developer Network introduces the GEM based Tru2way platform and shows how to get started with application development:

“If you’re reading about the Tru2way platform for the first time, you might be asking yourself the question, “Is it really possible to have a Java-enabled TV?” Or, better yet, “Is it possible to put a JVM machine inside my cable set-top box?” The answer to both questions is yes, and you don’t have to wait 5 or 10 years for this technology to come to fruition because it’s already available today in millions of homes throughout the United States. Tru2way is the brand name for interactive digital cable services delivered over the cable video network, and OCAP (Open Cable Application Platform) is the Java standard for Tru2way devices. This article introduces the concept of interactive TV, provides an overview of Tru2way technology, and shows you how to get started with Tru2way application development.”
