Well there has not been any real content posted here so I figured I might ask this question.
With Adobe spending time and resources to put the Flash player on the iPhone and announcing it(1,2), where is Sun with porting Java SE or ME onto the iPhone?
While Sun and Adobe have both had their respective VM products (Java/Flash) stated as items that will NOT be allowed or supported on the iPhone/Touch, it would seem that Adobe paid no heed to that warning. Has Sun done the same??? Last I heard some developers in their spare time jailbroke an iphone and had a PhoneME version running on it. Kudos to them.
However what investment, pressure, talks or discussions has Sun been a part of with Apple to see if we (Java Mobile Developers) have a place in their app store or on the device?
So unless Apple shoots down Adobe it would seem that Java Developers have been left out of the party, asked to take our code and go home. This is truly a sad state of being we are in, the language that invented the mobile application market is being kicked to the curb and we have no one coming to the rescue. Et tu Gosling?
