NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.5 for CDC Preview

This Preview Edition adds support for the JavaOne 2006 "Device of Show," the SavaJe Jasper S20.

The Jasper S20 is the first mobile phone powered by the Java Platform to support an early access version of JSR- 209 specifications, providing Java Micro Edition application developers with the ability to create advanced user interfaces for mobile phones and devices using Swing and Java2D.
Petr worked like crazy during nights, days and weekends. The created the new version of the Mobility Pack for CDC. I think that almost nobody noticed... It supports the Jasper phone that they sell here at JavaOne. I'm going to register (I hate this part) and download the SavaJe SDK.

Mobility Pod

I had a pod duty yesterday. I was at the NetBeans Mobility Pack booth answering questions and showing the best from the Mobility Pack. It suprised me that only a few people showed up there. Where are all the Java ME developers?
Come to the Mobility Pack booth. We are collecting business cards of the users. One of them will win new BlackBerry phone. The chance for win is pretty big right now ;)

I'll spend 2 hours in morning and two hours after lunch at the pod again. Meet me there.
I thought that the booth is at the corner of the Sun's booths village but unfortunatelly we are a little bit hidden in middle. Next to the Creator guys.

Mobility Pack Covers J2ME - CDC and CLDC

NetBeans Mobility Pack targeted the CLDC/MIDP development. It provides solution for device fragmentation, rapid applications development, testing on different emulators platforms, debugging etc.
A month ago the NetBeans Mobility Pack for CDC appeared. It's focused on the CDC/PP development. You can use all the features of the NetBeans IDE for the development of CDC/PP applications. It supports only Sony Ericsson CDC Platform and Nokia Series 80 now. It's planned to support RICOH and SavaJe. There is a way how to develop and deploy to PocketPC as well.

We can say that Mobility Pack covers both now - CDC and CLDC...

Don't you know what is the difference between CLDC and CDC?

Preprocessor directives explained

The preprocessor syntax has been changed in NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.0. It is more readable now. The syntax is like c++ macros now. Do you remember #ifdef, #ifndef ? Yes, it's back ;) There is code completion for creating a preprocessor directive. Abilities can have a value. You can check the value in the preprocessor block directive. You can create nsted blocks too. Lot of improvements from previous versions.
The preprocessor syntax is Antenna compatible. You can easily import code from Antenna to Mobility Pack and it should work.

Maybe you are asking what is it all about? Why a preprocessor?
I already explained it in my previous post almost year ago... In one sentence - the preprocessor helps us to solve device fragmentation.

There is new article explaining all the new directives of preprocessor in 5.0. Enjoy it

I cannot win Java Masters coffee mugs

I'm Sun employee. I cannot join the competition. I'm sad. I wanted to win the nice limited edition of the Java Masters coffee mugs.

I knew that I couldn't join the Java Masters 2006. I even understand it. I would definitelly push on the judges to vote for me. :) It's easy when you work in the same company. (to make it clear - the last two sentences are ironic). I really 'dont understand why I cannot win the mug...

You can win it. You can win even more if you are able to create an cool application for your mobile phone with NetBeans Mobility Pack. Don't be shy, go ahead and join Java Masters
