Sun Java Toolkit 1.0 for CDC Beta



I downloaded the Beta of "Sun Java Toolkit 1.0 for Connected Device Configuration" (CDC TK b)to test it with the new update of NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.5 for CDC Beta 2 (CdcPack). I was suprised how much it differs from the Sun Java Toolkit 1.0 for Connected Device Configuration Early Access (CDC TK EA) published before JavaOne this year.

The CDC TK EA supported Personal Profile 1.0/1.1 and AGUI. The CDC TK b supports only AGUI. That's interesting I was used to state where developerer were adding features in every new build not removing them.





Another thing that I noticed is that they removed the Editor from the CDC TK. They also changed the UI to follow something what I call "WTK style" (As user friendly as possible). The CDC TK is built on NetBeans Platform therefore its strange to not provide at least a simple editor to users. I know that I should say "Install Mobility Pack for CDC to have the Matisse, editor with code completion etc."... I know that they are focusing a different group of users. Probably some programmers used to vi. Wait! There is no vi on windows. Did I miss something?
Enough it's not my business. I cannot influence them. Only the users can. Unfortunatelly I don't know where you can report issues, enhancements. Hahaha, smart guys, no reports, no bugs, no negative feedback == only happy users.

Welcome CDC Pack future winner of some awards.

Yes, there are various different versions of vi and vim for NetBeans :)

ok, guys :) I agree there is VI on Windows. I meant that why to use "simple" editor when there is planty of features that make programmer live easier - Code Completion, Camel Completion, etc...

Ramesh: You are lucky man. We are adding support for PocketPC into Mobility Pack for CDC 5.5.1 version. The release should be finished at the end of April. I recommend you to try the daily build of CDC Pack. I'll write a blog entry how to set it up and use ASAP.
