Well give me a Wooo Eeee!!!! Sean Sheedy has been elected to the Java Community Process Mobile Edition Executive Committee. Sean previously sat on a number of JSR Expert Groups when he was part of Nextel and later Sprint but when he went out on his own he had a little or no voice in the JSR process. His voice since has been the voice of the average developer which should provide a meaningful...

Just in case you're not all election'd out, and just in case the recent election in the U.S. gave you some hope that things can change through elections, here's an opportunity to affect the direction of Java ME. JCP Java ME EC Election: Vote now for a Voice for Independent Developers by Terrence Barr is a good outline of circumstances related to the JCP and Java ME. The role of the JCP is to...

The schedule for the Mobile, Media, and eMBedded Developer Days (M3DD) has been published and is available at https://developerdays.dev.java.net/nonav/agenda.html. Like last year this is an action packed two intense days for intermediate to advanced Java ME application developers. As it stands right now there are twenty six technical sessions, thirteen lightning talks, and four poster...

Have you seen this unofficial Java API for Google Translator? So, I was thinking that it could be interesting to mix this stuff with Java Speech API (JSAPI). JSAPI was divided to support two things: speech recognizers and synthesizers. Speech synthesis is the process of generating human speech from written text for a specific language. Speech recognition is the process of converting human speech...

Hi all, After JustJava of this year, I've committed in SVN the last version of CoSMo source code. And now, i've created some issues to people with developer role collaborate with the project. And, if you don't know what is CoSMo or, wanna know more, you can listen the Mobility Podcast at Mobility Podcast 59 home page. In a few days, I'll put at the site a complete project road map and create some...

Java ME Platform SDK Early Access has been released yesterday. Have a look at http://java.sun.com/javame/downloads/sdk30ea.jsp and don't forget to read what's new first, because a lot of cool features is waiting for you. My personal favorites are on-device features. One click on-device deployment and on-device debugging. Who wants to start immediately to discover them just go get and install Java...

We had the Month of Java in Florianópolis promoted by GUJavaSC, a JUG in the south of Brazil. Mauricio Leal, Kohsuke Kawaguchi and Roger Brinkley were here. In addition, we had some very nice local presentations, including one with Floggy team, more can be found here. Pics can be found at Eduardo Sugahara's flickr.The entrance was 2kg of food, that will be donate for charity, so Java is...

In the two installments of this series we've looked at the architecture of a MEP connector, discussed the main abstractions of the ECBO (Enterprise Connector Business Object) API and showed an example of a MusicAlbum business object. In this third part, we'll focus on the MusicAlbumProvider class which is needed to complete the implementation of the connector to access music albums from a JDBC...

It's a 11:19pm MST and right now we have 51 submissions for the Mobile, Media, and eMbedded Call for papers. That's a little bit less than the 64 we had last year, but my guess is that by the time the night is over and the known and unknown stragglers show up we will be right around 60 submissions for the conferences crack staff of experts to start fleshing out the conference come Monday morning...

I am in a rush, like you, that probably are too. Who told us to chose a computing related profession?! Medicine changes once a century! But, because our world is dynamic, here it goes some quick updates that I can't miss: Kicking Butt with MIDP and MSA Some weeks ago I finally have finished reading Kicking Butt with MIDP and MSA (thanks Aaron Houston and Mark DeHart for the copy). If you are...

Over the past few years there has been quite a lot of interest in wireless sensors and the applications of this technology in a variety of areas (e.g. environment, bridge control, etc). Researchers have been experimenting with platforms such as the TinyOS (known as the Berkeley Mote) in which applications are written in NesC. But with Java running on billions of devices, there has been a quest...

I just received my Sentilla Perk (Pervasive Computing Kit) some hours ago (Picture 1). I want to thank Sentilla so much and, in special, Cheryl Hall, for being very attentive. If you don't know Sentilla yet, it wons the Duke Awards in Pervasive Solutions category this year at JavaOne! I have installed my kit on Windows Vista, it is described in the box that Windows XP is required. Anyway, it...

Over the past two years (starting in Fall 2006) I have integrated mobile devices, such as the BlackBerry, into my Computer Science courses. Janice J. Heiss has interviewed me about this work: Teaching Mobile Computing to Generation C. Any feedback is welcome. Q.

REST (Representational State Tranfer) is an architecture. Basically, it refers to the way the resources, commonly called URIs (Uniform Resource Identifier), are organized in the World Wide Web to be accessed and manipulated over the HTPP, using its default characteristics, like, for example, been stateless, specifying mime types, etc. The REST concept is not a new thing. Roy Fielding, one of the...

Anyone interested in Java ME or the challenge of teaching computer science to undergraduates might take a look at my recent interview with Java Champion Qusay Mahmoud, who is something of a pioneer in introducing mobile devices into the curriculum where he teaches at the University of Guelph in Canada. He got his hands on some second-hand BlackBerries and gave them to students to work with. He...

I have attended the O'Reilly Open Mobile Exchange (OMX), which is a one-day event organized for the first time as part of the O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON2008). I came to OSCON primarily for OMX and I am glad I did -- it was a wonderful event full of useful information -- many thanks to the organizers and speakers. Here are some highlights with comments... Driving Linux in the Mobile...

This will be short and sweet. To work around a race condition (see this thread), LWUIT needs to run on a separate thread on the Blackberry. Taking this into effect, together with a modified LWUIT distribution (removing references to M3G helper classes and the 3D Transition classes), I've finally got the demo to work on a simulator. Granted, this in the JDE, not NetBeans. I need to figure that...

The 10th O'Reilly Open Source Convention will take place between July 21-25 in Portland, Oregon. For the first time this year, they are organizing the Open Mobile Exchange -- a full day of insights, technical presentations, demos, and panel discussions. If you are involved with open source or building out the open mobile space, you should attend! I am looking forward to this event and visiting...
