John Gage, Chief Scientist, (the master of ceremony if you like) opened the session by welcoming everyone to the event and talked about Java in devices, which are beginning to multiply. To move this forward, there is a need to reduce the...

For a long time, testing of Java ME platforms and testing of Java ME applications were quite different areas. The developer community considered platform testing as something that exists far from them and is not applicable to their work.
It's similar to the Formula 1 auto-racing championship. A lot of major car manufacturers such as Mersedes-Benz, BMW, Renault, Toyota, Honda participate in this...

I recently returned from a two week trip to Brazil. I was there for FISL and Java ME Day, which was part of Sun Tech Days . I had an outstanding trip, from a Mobile & Embedded Community perspective. I talked to many people about Java ME and our open source community. Some of the technical highlights included:
Hearing about the one laptop per child project. I saw a preso on this at FISL...

Previously, I talked about why an embedded systems developer would choose to develop on the Java platform. If you have read that article and are intrigued by the benefits that the Java platform offers, then the next step is probably to ask some more deep probing questions like ...
Do I really need the Java platform?
Sure, the Java platform offers many benefits. But is it needed for my specific...

One of the great things about SunTech days is the people that you get to meet. Yesterday Emerson Giannini, one of the company directors, asked E-ming Saung and myself if we could visit his company office. What I found was not only a company creating interesting Java ME applications but a innovative company in the way it handles it's employees.
Paulo Rubens Francez and Emerson Giannini started...

I get many email about the application featured in the article MIDP Database Programming with RMS. The application locks up the screen as the MIDlet tries to establish a wireless connection. This article was developed back in 2000 and back then everything worked perfectly. However, when developing networking MIDlets, pay special attention to blocking operations (e.g. methods that establish a...

Or as the lawyers will probably correct me, the question in the title would more accurately be phrased as "Why Choose the Java platform?". If you've been following my blog, you may notice that I haven't written in a while. This is because I've been really busy with my day job. One of the things that the job brought me on recently was a road trip to meet with some customers.
On this trip, I...
