The GlassFish Mobility Platform team has been working on many new features since the 1.1 release back in February 2009, one of which is adding support for MCBO on the Java SE platform. This will allow the development of desktop synchronization clients that are much more powerful than their mobile Java ME siblings.
What's the Difference Between the Java ME and Java SE MCBO Libraries?
Not much! The two versions of the MCBO library are almost identical. The only exception is that there is no support for SMS related features in the Java SE library. Other than that, the APIs and behavior are the same in both libraries - you only have to learn a single programming model in order to write sync clients for either platform.
If you are interested in trying out these new features and providing feedback, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can provide an early access release of the Mobility Platform for a limited evaluation period.
