NetBeans 5.0 and the Mobility Pack
By Darryl Mocek on Feb 08, 2006
If you don't know already, NetBeans 5.0 was recently released. 5.0 is a major release of the NetBeans IDE and adds some great new features. However, if you're a JavaME programmer, you \*have\* to check out the Mobility Pack. The Mobility Pack gives you a great tool for creating JavaME applications. For example, for programmers who build applications for multiple Java devices (e.g. different mobile phones) it can be difficult to manage the various capabilities on the phone. You'd like to be able to write code which is common to all phones, but also be able to easily include and manage code specific to certain phones. The Mobility Pack gives you the ability to specify that certain code only pertains to one or more specific phones. This lets you write your application for all phones using one Java file and let the build process take care of including and not including sections of code for your target device. A life saver.
