Any idea as when JSR 209 implementation will be available on phoneME?

Yes, It will be easier to develop with AGUI and a lot easier to port desktop applications.

I would most certainly like to see AGUI open sourced. I'm currently developing a mobile application platform based on the CDC->PBP stack, and while the rest of the platform is easy to develop and maintain, the one area that stands out in terms of difficulty is the UI.

Only AGUI and LWUIT are viable options, however, LWUIT for CDC hasn't been released and AGUI only works inside an emulator.

I think a lack of decent UI options (among other things) is holding back the CDC-based technology stacks, when they should be penetrating the mobile market more thoroughly. The mobile Java developer needs options, and right now we have too few for creating rich UIs.

So yes, please open source AGUI, and start letting us create rich Swing UIs for the mobile market.

I would love to see JSR 209 (AGUI) open sourced. There are a number of applications for BUG ( ) which could be further enhanced if given access to the AGUI API.

Hi hakka,

JSR 209, Advanced Graphics and User Interface, which is a finalized JCP specification (see: is meant to run on top of Java ME CDC, which means it is technically a phoneME Advanced topic (cc'ing the forum with this message), instead of a phoneME Feature topic.

There is an RI available at the same above URL if you follow the instructions in the "Reference Implementation and Technology Compatibility Kit" section, but there are no current plans to make it available through this phoneME project.

If you could have it available as open source software via the phoneME project, how would you use it in your case and how important would it be that it be open source instead of available for free evaluation through Sun? There have been some interesting discussions about JSR 209 elsewhere, since it is not widely available on cell phones. It does not seem to be developing as much interest as we had hoped, but if enough people here on this phoneME mail alias ask for it, there may be enough reason for Sun to open source it via phoneME.

Are there any other phoneME developers out there beside hakka_bakka who would like to see JSR 209, AGUI open sourced?

I am also interested in evaluating JSR209 on PPRO10 and PPRO11 in Windows Mobile and Windows CE devices. If it is available, please let me know. It is not necesarily be open sourced in my case.
