Java ME Platform SDK toolbox for developing mobile applications has been released as Early Access on October 9. It integrates CLDC, CDC and Blu-ray Disc Java (BD-J) technology into one SDK. Java ME SDK 3.0 is the successor to the well known Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5.2 and Java Toolkit 1.0 for CDC. It provides device emulation, on-device deployment, on-device debugging, a standalone development environment based on Netbeans platform, Java runtime for Windows Mobile and a set of utilities for rapid development of Java ME applications.
Java ME Platform SDK Early Access has been released yesterday. Have a look at http://java.sun.com/javame/downloads/sdk30ea.jsp and don't forget to read what's new first, because a lot of cool features is waiting for you. My personal favorites are on-device features. One click on-device deployment and on-device debugging. Who wants to start immediately to discover them just go get and install Java cldc/midp runtime for Windows Mobile shipped with the product.
I'm really happy that ME developers can get an early access to play with it so soon. Let us know what you think, because ... it is still time until final release to add features and improve things. Your feedback is very valuable for us. Looking forward to your comments.
