Java ME: LWUIT Upgrades

For those developers working on
apps for today's feature
phones, the Java Swing-inspiredLWUIT has long
been a good option for making good looking
UIs such as these. And its just part of the all-devices-in-one
Java ME SDK 3.0.

Last month LWUIT made its 1.2
release with a raft of new features, paying particular attention to
a revamped
way of inserting style into components and backgrounds, and a newly
online designer tool (seems to be all the rage these
days).

And, as an open source project,
others appear to be doing it with LWUIT too: its been ported
to a new mini-Java ME VM called Jelatine, and can be upgraded
to display text tfel-ot-thgir.
