Mobile Apps and NetBeans

In the little bit of spare time I had last Monday, I attended a session at NetBeans Day at CommunityOne on mobile devices and that renewed my interest in Java ME and caused me to download the latest NetBeans 6 Preview which includes the latest Mobility stuff.

I haven't done much yet but did manage to create a simple app and get it deployed to my wife's Motorola L6 and I have other ideas planned, so stay tuned.

Related, it was interesting to see David Berlind blog about Mobile RIAs and in it mentions the NetBeans versus Eclipse battle and in fact has a poll to vote on the preferred IDE for creating mobile apps. As of my writing this, 70% of the 515 votes were in favor of NetBeans.

CommunityOne

I attended my first CommunityOne today. I had attended parts of JavaOne last year but hadn't taken part in NetBeans day.

We got to hear from Tim O'Reilly along with Rich Green, Ian Murduck, and Tim Bray for the general session. The most interesting piece to me was the mobility session and seeing a demo of Sun Spot and Mobile Complete. The latter provides for time-shared access to most if not all mobile phones to be able to test ones apps on a variety of devices. Quite interesting.

Tomorrow is the kickoff of JavaOne so we'll see what transpires from that!
