JavaOne and Oracle Develop 2010; Recap JavaME

I thought I ought to sum up this year’s JavaOne2010 conference. It has been an intense week as always. This was the 9th time I’ve gone to JavaOne. This year I also join Oracle Develop conference for the first time.

What could you say about this conference?
I agree totally with this blogpost: Sun JavaOne != Oracle javaone
  • It was really a small JavaOne conference this year
  • I also miss the normal JavaOne excitement, I didn't feel it
Some of the hot mobility topics at this JavaOne:
  • Oracle show the (Oracle) JavaME roadmap, thats was good but is was a Oracle JavaME roadmap not a community JavaME roadmap!!
  • Oracle is also committed to modernizing the Java ME platform, and is working with the Java Mobile community on Java ME.next. They talked about a planed meeting i Bonn about JavaME.next (some weeks away from now).
  • JavaFX Mobile, has now Oracle put on hold
  • MIDP 3.0 is ready for devices and new devices with MIDP 3.0 I believe are coming next year, but Oracle choose not to talk about it at this JavaOne, very strange??!!
  • Oracle to webify mobile Java against Android

Conclusions:
  • MIDP 3.0 is ready for devices and new devices with MIDP 3.0 are coming next year, but Oracle choose not to talk about it at this JavaOne, I really hate company politics!! Read more about it here.
  • JavaOne gets smaller and smaller, the first year I attend JavaOne it was 5 whole days . Starting 8.30 in the morning and ending 23.30 in the evening.
  • I feel now I will probably not attend any more JavaOne conference, if Oracle not change back to the old way of doing (Sun) JavaOne.
  • Oracle is committed to JavaME and but must now starting handling the unhealthy business mess in JavaME to be able to take JavaME forward.

Nokia Developer Summit 2010; Recap Technical Stream

I thought I ought to sum up the Nokia Developer Summit 2010 conference.

Overall the conference was a not so good this time if you compare with Nokia Developer Summit 2009 in Monaco.
I think the combination with Nokia World what not so good from a developers view, I would like to have technical keynote instead.

I like the technical session and hands-on lab, but they started to late every day, 10.30 to 17.00. The result was only 2 half days but with new interesting stuff.

I also would like to hear more about MeeGo and what is coming but Nokia choose to not speak about it at all.
Very very strange!!!!
I am very disappointed about that

Some of the hot mobility topics at this Nokia Developer Summit:
  • Nokia told us that: Nokia N8 is very important for Nokia because this is the first Nokia device launched with Qt installed
  • Every developer at Nokia developer Summit conference got a new Nokia N8 :-)
  • Qt Quick is the future for building UI for Meego, Maemo and Symbian^4
  • Next release of Maemo will support Qt 4.7 and Qt Quick
Conclusions:
  • I plan to learn more about Qt and WRT, it will be important in the future for mobile application development for the Symbian^3, Symbian^4 and the MeeGo platform.
  • Nokia will continue to support JavaME and thats great I think, but Nokia talked more about Qt at this conference.
  • Developers are now more important for Nokia, thats great I think!!
I am looking forward to a next Nokia Developer Summit, but only if it is like in Monaco.

Good JavaME news: Nokia contributed the JRT to the Symbian Foundation

I must say I am very pleased about that recently, Nokia contributed the JRT to the Symbian Foundation.
I hope Nokia will do the same for MeeGo platform also, yes yes we need JavaME at this platform also I believe!!

But what is really the future for JavaME?
Every things goes very very slowly in the JavaME world, when will we see MIDP 3.0?
I hope Oracle can do something about this huge problem?
I plan to go the next JavaOne 2010 and I really wish something happen in that area!!!
