Oracle releases ADF Mobile with Java ME CDC for iOS and Android

Finally. Oracle has released a new product that I've worked on for a while now. Oracle ADF Mobile is available for iOS and Android bringing Java ME CDC technology to iPhones and Android devices all over the world. Woot! Java. On iPhone and Android. Yeah, it's like that.


Java and HTML5 on SmartPhones

Here's a quote:

 Oracle announced the availability of 
 Oracle ADF Mobile – a framework the 
 enables the development of hybrid 
 applications for mobile devices. 
 Oracle ADF Mobile uses Java and 
 HTML5 and enables developers to 
 develop a single application that 
 installs and runs on both iOS and 
 Android systems.

 Java - Application logic is developed 
 with the Java language. Oracle brings a 
 lightweight Java VM embedded with each 
 application so you can develop all your 
 business logic in the platform neutral 
 language you know and love! (Yes, even 
Gosh, you'd think it was a big deal. Well, it was! So, go download yours today!

JavaOne 2012 demo of Java SE Embedded on Raspberry Pi

Here's the Inquirer's article about our Java SE Embedded demos at JavaOne 2012 this year. Simon Ritter had a fun presentation showing the cool demo on the Raspberry Pi at his talk.


Demo Java SE Embedded on Raspberry Pi

Here's a quote:

 Oracle demonstrated Java SE for 
 embedded devices running on the 
 Raspberry Pi bare bones computer 
 at the Java One show on Wednesday, 
 with the aim of encouraging 
 developers to try it out for 
 themselves to create reference 
 libraries for the target school 
 children audience.
I had the presentation after Simon and saw the size crowd he had. They were laughing and clapping at the demo and having a good ol' time. Good to see the interest in Java SE Embedded, even if it is for a "toy" device like the Raspberry Pi. ;-)

New Java ME security app, Rapid Tracker, is now full version

Rapid Protect has updated it's Java ME security app to be the full version now instead of a dumbed down version that ran on feature phones. Now, that's progress!


Full Rapid Tracker on Java ME

Here's a quote:

 Rapid Protect, a leading company 
 focused on mobile based safety, 
 security and collaboration space 
 announces major feature enhancements 
 to its award winning "Rapid Tracker" 
 mobile applications. In addition to 
 many new features, it announced 
 availability of Full Rapid Tracker 
 application on J2ME non-smart feature 
Hmmm... "on J2ME non-smart feature phones". I wonder if by "non-smart" they mean another word... Perhaps, "non-iDrone-Anphoid"?

Bay Area JUG (12Jul2012) presentation: Developing w/Java Embedded on Raspberry Pi

Here's a video of the Bay Area JUG presentation from 12Jul2012 on Developing w/Java Embedded for the Raspberry Pi device.

This was a lot of fun to present with Gary. There seems to be a lot of interest in running Java Embedded on the new Raspberry Pi development board. Hope developers find this informative!


Developing w/Java Embedded on Raspberry Pi

The great part is that Gary and I were able to also see James Gosling's talk after ours (see the talk in the right margin of the Youtube link). James had some cool background information and demos from his current job at Liquid Robotics, maker of a ocean wave riding robot.

Oracle Music Festival at this year's JavaOne 2012 conference

Well, here's something that's new: There will be the Oracle Music Festival going on at night during the same time as this year's Oracle Open World and JavaOne 2012 conference.

Oracle Music Festival @ JavaOne

Here's a quote:

 This year, the first-ever Oracle 
 Music Festival will debut, running 
 from September 30 to October 4. In 
 the tradition of great live music 
 events like Coachella and SXSW, the 
 streets of San Francisco—from 7:00 
 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. for five nights-
 into-days—will vibrate with the 
 music of some of today’s hottest 
 name acts...
The English Beat and Macy Gray will be there. Cool. Just remember to also go over to a couple of the technical sessions during the day too. Looks better that way when you fill out your expense report. :-)

Samsung Champ feature phone w/Java ME technology

You're a champ if you buy the Samsung Champ at a special low, low price from Amazon. Here's a video that displays why the Samsung Champ is the champ of all Java ME tech-enabled feature phones...

It's got Java support, GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz support, a 2.4 inches Touch Screen, 1.3MP Camera Resolution, Music Player, FM Radio, Bluetooth, Talk Time: Up to 12 hours, and Stand by Time: Up to a demonic 666 hours. What more can you ask for?


Samsung Champ

Any Java ME cell phone that has a touchscreen and that's sold via Amazon is a champ in my book... even if it is "chic white"! Ack.

Java Embedded @ JavaOne (Call for Papers)

Got an idea for a great Java Embedded talk at JavaOne 2012 in San Francisco this year? Well you've got until 27Jul2012 to get your submission in before the deadline!


Submit a paper for Java Embedded

Here's a quote:

 The call-for-papers (CFP) for Java 
 Embedded @ JavaOne closes soon. 
 Interested speakers are invited to 
 make business submissions: best 
 practices, case studies and panel 
 discussions on emerging 
 opportunities in the Java embedded 
 space. Submit a paper. 
Do it! Java Embedded @ JavaOne 2012 is a cool new sub-conference (conference within a conference within a conference) that will prove that nested conferences make sense... where Java Embedded technology (and recursion limits) is concerned that is! ;-)

Netbeans 7.2 is released with FindBug integration

Haven't you always wanted your computer program to find its own bugs by itself? Well, that's a lot closer to reality now with FindBug integration in the newly released Netbeans 7.2.


Netbeans 7.2 released

Here's a quote:

 Oracle's Netbeans integrated 
 development environment (IDE) 
 goes toe-to-toe with Eclipse 
 when it comes to open-source 
 programming tools. Oracle, the 
 overlord of Java, has updated 
 its Netbeans IDE. The firm's 
 updates in Netbeans 7.2 
 include tight integration with 
 the Findbugs analysis tool, 
 performance improvements and 
 support for PHP 5.4.
Now if only computer programs could just write themselves too...

Hot-hot-hot for jobs in Java and mobile software

It's hot-hot-hot! The market for Java and mobile developers keeps growing hotter, and hotter--so says the latest Dice survey.


Dice survey says Java & Mobile are tops

Here's a quote:

 The market for mobile developers is 
 expanding faster than the talent pool 
 can adapt, a Dice survey indicates.

 Software developers in general—as 
 well as Java, mobile software and 
 Microsoft .Net developers in 
 particular—are in short supply today. 
 Those fields represent four of the 
 top five most difficult positions IT 
 managers are looking to fill...
 The New York/New Jersey metro area 
 led the country with 8,871 positions 
So, if you are looking to get into software development get crackin' in learning Java mobile programming and move to NY or NJ. Let's go Mets!
