Berkeley DB Java Edition 4.0 on Android
By Charles Lamb on Oct 07, 2009
I've just finished checking that JE 4.0 works properly on Android 1.6 (it does). But even better is that we'll be shipping a je-android.jar file with 4.0 when it's available ("by the end of CY2009"). This means that JE/Android users will no longer need to copy the JE sources into a project directory in order to modify the sources to replace references to javax.transaction.xa.* with references to stub classes. Instead, they will just need to copy the je-android.jar file into their project libs directory and they'll be ready for action. The HOWTO-Android.html is a lot smaller now.
Further, DPL now works on Android. That sure made life a lot easier when getting the demos for OOW ready.
All of this willmake the entire JE/Android experience a lot simpler.
