I am disappointed... I could not go on with my tests envolving phoneME Advanced on iPhone due to iPhone SDK just runs on Mac OS X. Boring week, I bought an iPhone for that and someone thought everybody should have a Mac OS X to use it... what a nice thing! Anyway, let's change plans for now... I found something funnier: let's play with JSR 256 (Mobile Sensor API or MSAPI). But let's use Marge (...

Ibon Urrutia, member of the NetBeans Dream Team, has just uploaded a new video on NetBeans.TV, showing off a product made by a corporate he's working for. It's TagsME, a development tool for producing JavaME applications by simplifying your work and maximizing device compatibility. I'm not going to add other words since I've just received from Ibon the license code for trying TagsME GUI, a...

When I was at JavaOne, I sold my soul to devil: I bought an iPhone. Here in Brazil, there is no iPhone being officially selled yet. Let's start having fun and playing with Java on it: Unlock your iPhone. Babies can do that before they say mama. More information at Zibri's Blog. Make it useful: Install Cydia (front-end for Debian APT) to substitute default Installer application. In Installer,...

Forget about what I have said previously, LWUIT (Lightweight UI Toolkit) is the way! LWUIT was launched at JavaOne 2008 and there are already some nice tutorials and demos about it. I met some of the guys in the Pavillion and I was impressed with the lib, very cool! Another point is that you can also use LWUIT in commercial applications, it was released under the SLA. LWUIT is a UI library that...

I don't understand Twitter. Please feel free to use the comments below to call me a stupid old-fashioned luddite who wouldn't know the next big thing if it tried to add its second life avatar as my facebook buddy. Or you could use the comments below to imagine the Twitter log for your favorite Sun exec this week. In my midwestern ill-informed opinion, either would be a better use of your time...

Hi all, This post it´s just to express my excitement with this great API. I´ve just read the tutorial and make little examples, and it´s look easy. I'm realy thinking about use it on CoSMo, to make it more "friendly" and with a better look. Now, I'm creating an expenses tracker with LWUIT and when it´s finished I'll post it here with my impressions about it!! Cya! Neto Marin

Jonathan Simon popped up in IM as I was leaving for JavaOne. "Dude," he said --- it's his standard greeting, "check this out." He directed me to Terrence Barr's post on the LWUIT (Lightweight UI Toolkit). Jonathan had worked on something similar a while back and was glad to see someone else making progress on this problem. He told me to see if I could find these guys at JavaOne and so yesterday I...

I have attended the General Session this morning. Several applications were demoed showing the power of JavaFX. The most interesting for me was "Connected Life", which interacts with several social networking tools, but what I found most interesting about it is the ability to drag the running application from inside the browser onto the desktop, the browser can then be closed and the application...

The main reason that I am at JavaOne this year is that I produce the weekly Java Mobile and Embedded Podcast hosted by Roger Brinkley and Terrence Barr. My voice doesn't appear in the show so many people don't know that I'm involved, but I have really enjoyed working with this project over the past year and getting to know the members of the mobile and embedded community and the many cool...

The idea of smart Java dust becoming pervasive is compelling (consider the SunSPOT technology, including the Squawk JVM). If Sun really wants this to sweep the market, there has to be a path to make small commercial Java systems extremely easy to develop and affordable to license. Then, every individual or small shop with a bright idea can afford to implement it, and will want to. Yet the typical...

Hi all, After a long and tenebrous winter, finally I had time to write again somethings that I think are usefull about mobile development, and, mainly, about Java ME! =) And, how my purpose here is to show you my experiences and solutions to some problems that I have in my daily work, I'll write about a home made solution created to implement internationalization support on my application!...

Recently, a friend of mine bought a bluetooth dongle. In theory, it had an external antenna to enhance the signal. Everything looked fine until the dongle fell down and the truth came up. Wow, the expanded antenna was everything but to enhance the signal. Actually, it was nothing! Just a piece o plastic attached to the USB dongle bound to anything. Dhammit! Take care next time you buy a...

Marge (Java Bluetooth Framework) got a mini talk in Community Corner. It will be on Wednesday at 3:30 pm. If are you interested in Bluetooth, JSR 82 (Java Apis for Bluetooth) and Marge, do not miss that! We have integrated a Bluetooth mobile controller for a nice James Weaver's compiled JavaFX Script tetris game! Thanks, Jim! Here is a preview (updated): The old video is at http://www.youtube....

The 9th edition of fisl (International Free Software Forum) was huge! 7417 participants from 21 countries talking about open source 12 hours by day during 3 days. Wow! Great atmosphere! Great sessions! Great people! Great ideas, discussions, dinners...

As it was announced before, Marge 0.5 is out. In this post, I am going to demonstrate an interesting new feature called AutoConnect. AutoConnect is indeed to automatically connect Bluetooth devices. It has some limitations due to some bad implementations and has some scenarios that maybe it is not the best option, but still very interesting and is definitely awesome to make something with a few...
