Have you been missing a dedicated conference for mobile and embedded Java? A place to get together with peers, community members, and industry experts to deep-dive on all things Java mobile & embedded? A conference that is driven by the community for the community? Where you decide on the topics?
We thought so ... ;-) In fact, we've heard this request many times at conferences around the...
Some new features have been added to the CVM's VM Inspector. This entry will give you a quick update on this.
I just returned from two days in Madrid, Spain, attending and speaking at the "Open Source in Mobile" (OSiM) conference.
This was not your typical open source conference. The focus was clearly on the decision makers, executives, and strategists of commercial companies. The audience and speakers were carefully picked and the high price of admission (up to GBP 4225.00) resulted in a...
The MIDP3 Expert Group (JSR-271) is meeting this week, and if you have something on your mind that you want the EG to take notice of, now would be a good time to act. Feel strongly about something? Try the personal approach.
At the end of the day external participation is what makes or breaks an open source community. The virtuous cycle of open source, external participation and contributions, leveraging each other's innovation and work, and feeding it back into the community and code base is the sole point of going open source. Open source without a vibrant community is an academic exercise. Quite a few companies...
Hey! Today I felt a desire to create something with JavaFX Script and Bluetooth. I have posted my experiments. :)
In one of our recent podcasts we interviewed Rick Hillegas from the Apache Derby project (also known as JavaDB). JavaDB is a compact, easy-to-use, feature-rich relational database that runs on platforms supporting Java 1.4 and later.
We in the Mobile & Embedded Community frequently get asked about database support for Java ME. Well, with the release of JavaDB 10.1 with JSR 169 (JDBC API) the...
How could you create Java SE Bluetooth applications, since JSR 82 (Java Apis for Bluetooth) was made thinking in Java ME? In this entry, I am going to explain some aspects around it and also give some tips in order to you start doing Bluetooth desktop applications. In addition, we are going to talk a little about the GCF (Generic Connection Framework).
More and more, access control and other home automation stuff are being used and required. We are giving away part of our privacy to prior security and commodity.
You've been working with the phoneME Advanced code base (or one of the other projects) on java.net, and you see that someone has checked in some code with a certain revision number. How do you find out what that change is for? This entry will give you a clue.
As many of you may knowÂ the Java language and runtime concept was born as part of Sun's "Green project" in the early nineties. The Java platform was originally designed to fit the needs of mobile and embedded devices even though it turned out its appeal of course went way beyond the embedded space.
James Gosling just posted a very interesting old video from 1992 on the UI of the Green...
Summertime is slow, seems like lots of people are on vacation these days. Still, the Mobile Services Architecture (MSA or JSR 248) is hitting the market this year and being deployed in a large numbers of devices throughout 2007 and beyond. This week, Monday through Friday, is your chance to ask our experts about MSA. If you have questions about the technology, the APIs, the features, or business...
Cognitive networks can dynamically adapt their operational parameters in response to user needs or changing environmental conditions. They can learn from these adaptations and exploit knowledge to make future decisions...
Big Mobile Operator is running Sun BlackBox system
Open source at Sun is here to stay ... the open sourcing of Java SE, EE, and ME should prove that beyond a doubt. But how does that translate into a business strategy that drives value for Sun?
Matt Asay blogs about his interview with the CEO of Sun, Jonathan Schwarz, at LinuxWorld. A highly recommended read.

A comment in a previous blog asks why CVM keeps some data structures in the C heap instead of the Java heap. Here's the answer.
New (really cool) demo added to phoneME UI Labs!
One of our newest community members, Stefan Saftescu, posted this question on our phoneME forum. Java on the iPod and a dozen other multimedia players? Way cool! That's the thing about open source: Innovation and ideas come from all sorts of unexpected places. Roger and I also talk about this briefly in the "What's Cool" section of our latest podcast.
So, check out RockBox, get in touch...
I have downloaded Netbeans IDE 6.0 M10 last weekend to take a new look in the Mobility Pack 6.0 that is coming. In this post, I am going to talk about some of its improvements... really good news for ME developers!
I blogged about SunSPOTs a few weeks back. The topic is actually heating up a lot these days and, while I can't give you specific details right now, you'll see several interesting developments happening over the next few weeks. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, check out these videos about all the cool stuff people are doing with SunSPOTs:
