7 Signs Your Project Will Never Make it to Production

Read a interesting post from Ben Moore:

OneJava or NoJava or TwoJava for JavaME/CDC1.1?

I waiting and waiting for devices supporting JavaME/CDC1.1/FP1.1/PP1.1 and AGUI!

Last year at JavaOne something happen, the Java based phone "Jasper" from Savaje was released and I suddenly was able to buy me phone that support JavaME/CDC1.1!! But last year in November the company SavaJe was out of buissness and again no phone on the market was supporting JavaME/CDC1.1/FP1.1/PP1.1 and AGUI!

I think that this sort of problem (with badly support of JavaME/CDC in devices) we perhaps can avoid because JavaME is Open Source, this really something great that have happen during 2007!!

There is also a other interesting JavaME/CDC1.1 solution from a Eclipse project called eRCP. eRCP is installed on top of JavaME/CDC1.1/FP1.1 and using eSWT instead of AGUI. eRCP 1.0.1 is already released and the release plan (I think I don't know) for eRCP look like this: Release 1.0.2 April 2007, Release 1.1 July 2007.
Today the eRCP project is supporting following platforms:
  • OS: Windows, CPU: x86
  • OS: Windows Mobile 2003 & 2005,CPU: ARM,x86(?)
  • OS: Nokia Series 80,CPU: ARM
Other platforms that work is going on to add support for eRCP:
  • OS: Nokia Series 60, CPU: ARM
  • OS: Linux Qte, CPU: ??
  • OS: Windows CE v5.0, CPU: ARM
Anyone know more about future plans for devices supporting JavaME/CDC1.1/FP1.1/PP1.1 or eRCP?
Please tell me!!
I hope they release something during JavaOne!
It is now only 39 days left to JavaOne!!

Symbian OS v9.5 is released

I found some interesting things:
  • A database is included, Based on the Open Source database SQLite
    I wondering, will it be possible to use the database when you develop JavaME applications or is it only for internal use?
  • The first mobile OS to support the new ARM® Cortex™-A8 processor (TI OMAP3430)
    More power on devices during 2008 --> It is then possible to build more cool JavaME Enterprise applications!!

eRCP and Nokia E90

I found some interesting things in this presentation eRCP - Ready for prime time! by Gorkem Ercan (Nokia), Mark Rogalski (IBM) from the conference EclipseCon 2007:
  • eRCP as a post-installed add-on software
    component to Nokia E90!!!!
  • Release plan for eRCP: Release 1.0.2 April 2007, Release 1.1 July 2007
  • eRCP Release 1.1: Nokia S60, WinCE
Download the presentation here.

I already thought the Nokia E90 was great but now I also understand that Nokia E90 will also support JavaME/CDC1.1/FP1.1 & eRCP1.1 but as a post-installed add-on software!!!!

Read more about eRCP 1.1 draft project plan at the eRCP project site.

Anyone know more about this?
Please tell me!!

Anyway I think I will get more information about this at JavaOne 2007!!
(Nokia is Gold Cosponsors, but IBM???)
It is now only 45 days left to JavaOne!!

But there is no technical session or BOF about eRCP at this JavaOne??
Strange? why?
Here is the whole content catalog for JavaME at JavaOne2007
