If you haven't had a chance to listen to the just-published podcast with Dalibor Topic I highly encourage you to do so.
Dalibor is a well-known and respected open source Java advocate, a lead developer on the Java VM "Kaffe" project, and currently a member of the interim OpenJDK governing board.
He shares some very good insights and feedback during the interview. And he gives Sun and the Mobile & Embedded Community a pretty good scorecard so far. In case you won't have a chance to listen to the whole podcast here are some quotes:
- "... impressed by the ME team's performance."
- "... enabled a lot of fun things to happen ..."
- "What Sun has done over the last year is really impressive ... "
- "Getting the source code out there is major step ahead that lets people build on ... the rest will come almost automatically."
It's very encouraging to hear Java ME open source is on the right track and the steadily increasing participation and activity in the community seems to confirm that (check the forums for more).
But how do you think we are doing? Post your comment here or email me at evangelist[@]mobileandembedded[dot]org.
Looking forward to your thoughts!
