Create better Mobile Java Applications with LWUIT

Java evangelist Terrence Barr has just written an excellent article about the Lightweight User Interface Toolkit entitled, "Rich Applications for Billions of Devices: What's new in LWUIT?"  In this article, he provides an overview of the technology, discusses key features, including support in the Java ME SDK, and provides an update on the functionality that has been included in LWUIT 1.3.  Here is a quick excerpt from the article:

"The Lightweight User Interface Toolkit (LWUIT), released in mid-2008, has been a boon to mobile developers right from the start. LWUIT is a UI library targeted to a wide range of mobile devices, from mass market to high-end smart phones, and has now also been ported to other embedded platforms. The rich functionality and clean design of LWUIT makes developing and deploying rich and engaging cross-platform applications easier than ever. LWUIT is an open technology with its source and binary freely accessible for individual or commercial use.
 

LWUIT has seen widespread adoption by developers, ISVs, and other third parties. Numerous resources are devoted to LWUIT, including a developer guide, articles, tutorials, code samples, videos, a site with featured LWUIT-based applications, and last but not least, a very active developer community and associated forum"

Comments:

I dont know if this is the place for asking the question, but as i was not able to find out were to ask that. I am a third party developer working for cellphone contractor. Currently the team are using LWUIT as the UI interface. My question is, we had to make small changes in the class TextArea (to met app requirements) as well as extends from DefaultLookAndFeel, so how should we proceed in relation to the license ( the code we changed from lwuit,etc). The code should be sent to some place? And the lwuit license should be place in the MIDlet About screen? I appreciate any information, Best Regards Gladyston
