Curl up in bed, with a good Java ME enabled Amazon Kindle 2

Yes, the Amazon Kindle 2 is being shipped next week and yes it does have Java ME CDC beating inside the core of its heart. Thanks for asking. It's got Java ME technology for a simple reason: it works well at the heart of today's coolest high tech gadgets.

See:

Amazon Kindle 2's heart is Java ME

Here's a quote:

 But bear in mind that the Kindle, 
 at its heart, is a Java machine 
 and porting some or all of the 
 Kindle functionality to the 
 gazillion or so Java-enabled 
 handsets including those running 
 Symbian, BlackBerry, and the 
 Android platforms [blech!] 
 shouldn't be too difficult for 
 Amazon.  Software also is a 
 better business model for Amazon 
 given how much more scalable it 
 is than hardware...
Well, there you have it. Amazon Kindle 2 hearts Java ME. OMG, they are like BFF! LOL! TTYL!

Comments:

I'm not sure what JavaFX code you are trying to display here now, but would you mind removing it?

It's taking forever to load, forces me to click OK 2-3 times to dismiss the dialogs and eventually dies.

If you want to bubble this up to the JavaFX team, here is the exception:

(well, I can't copy/paste the exception. Just try to load your own blog on Mac OS / FireFox).

Hi X,

There's no JavaFX code in the blog post that you commented on:

http://blogs.sun.com/hinkmond/entry/curl_up_in_bed_with#comments

You commented on the Kindle 2 blog post. Did you mean the iPhone blog post?

Also, what happens after you run again (after initially clicking on the accept dialogs)? Does it ask for confirmation the second time around or only the first time?

Come on, Hinkmond, don't pretend you don't know what he's talking about. A simple search for "javafx" on the source of your main landing page shows:

<script src="http://dl.javafx.com/1.1/dtfx.js"></script>

I am seeing the same error. Your main page already takes a long time to load as it is, please don't make it worse.

What are you trying to display that requires JavaFX anyway?

Hi Steve,

No need to get huffy. :-) That's correct that my main blog page has the iPhone blog post which has JavaFX Mobile app, but this comment thread is on this page (Click on this URL):

http://blogs.sun.com/hinkmond/entry/curl_up_in_bed_with#comments

The readers of this thread (going to the URL above) might get confused by what both you and x are commenting on, since it is a non-JavaFX post about the Kindle 2.

In reference of the JavaFX app on the separate iPhone blog post and main blog page, are you also using MacOS and Firefox? Do you see the same on Safari? I don't have current access to a Mac system right now, that's why I ask.

Thanks for your help,
Hinkmond

BTW Steve & x,

I just tested my main blog page (http://blogs.sun.com/hinkmond) on my pokey-\*ss Mac Mini (the cheapest and slowest Mac around, they don't give me the fancy Mac here in the Java ME group... :'-( ) and JavaFX ran fine on it.

See:
http://blogs.sun.com/hinkmond/resource/images-2009/hinkmond-blog-javafx-post.png

Just make sure to click on only 2 dialogs when running any JavaFX app for the first time (then you never have to click on any dialogs again)

When you see: "This applet was signed by 'JavaFX Runtime'..." Click "Trust"

When you see: "JavaFX delivers rich media content..." Click "Accept"

That's it. It will never ask you those questions again unless you clear out your cookies in Firefox or Safari.

Thanks,
Hinkmond
