Hi,

Saw this article regarding Sun providing the TCKs for open source developers: http://news.com.com/Sun+lowers+barriers+to+open-source+Java/2100-7344_3-...

First, this is great news! Does this release apply to phoneME as well as OpenJDK?

thanks
ken

Checking email during my day off ;-(

This announcement pertains to OpenJDK. In the Java ME space things are more difficult since a Java ME implemementation typically covers by multiple JSRs (CLDC, MDIP, WMA, etc) and the TCKs for each JSR may come from different parties (such as Sun, Mototola, Nokia, etc). The decisions about those TCKs are made by the individual parties.

However, because TCK access is an important topic Sun is in talks with other TCK owners and Sun is considering its options related to the Java ME TCKs it owns. No final decisions have been made yet.

Good question. Terrence Barr is probably the best person to answer
this. He'll be back on Mon. 13Jul.

In an effort for a prompt response and I'm going to Todays announcement
does not apply to phoneME. If I'm wrong I'll correct it later.
