After reading Terrence's recent blog about Sun SPOTs, I've decided that they're pretty much the coolest thing.

From what I understand, Sun SPOTs are CLDC 1.1 enabled - so I was wondering how the sensors are accessed from Java ME? Is there an additional API (I think there's a sensor API documented somewhere, I know there's a Nokia one), or is it accessed using GCF by reading off local ports or something?

We went with the OEM API approach. Which means we have SPOT and Squawk specific APIs. You can get a good look at them at http://www.sunspotworld.com/documentation.php, but keep in mind that these are changing somewhat over time.

We are looking at the GCF and sensor stuff from the other platforms, but its not high on our priority list at the moment. We are focusing on open sourcing and upgrading our current release.

Hope this helps,
