Can MobPack Run on Vista?

The next version of Windows is "coming soon" (is it good news or bad news?). They call it Windows Vista. We can expect that lot of users will migrate to this new operating system. Therefore we have to be prepared for them. I tested following products on Windows Vista RC1 - NetBeans 5.5, Mobility Pack 5.5, Mobility Pack for 5.5 CDC, Sun Java Wireless Toolkit for CLDC 2.2, 2.5 (aka WTK), Sun Java Wireless Toolkit for CDC 1.0. All of them worked without any problems...

Don't hesitate to report a problem with NetBeans or Mobility Pack on Vista.

Mobility Pack 5.5 for CDC bundles CDC platform

We are going to produce RC1 of NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.5 for CDC next week (hopefully). There is lot of bugfixes in this RC.
There is one more big news. The Sun Java Toolkit for CDC is bundled in the Mobility Pack for CDC installer. It definitelly ioncreased the size of the installer but it will increase usability. Now the Mobility Pack 5.5 for CDC works out-of-box. Just install it and you can start working. Cool.

On the right side is screen shot of the new skin of the CDC Toolkit emulator. Doesn't look cool? (the screenshot was taken on Windows Vista)
The only sad thing about the Sun Java Toolkit for CDC is that it supports only AGUI. It means that if you want develop an Personal Profile application you will have to download another emulator (SDK).


Do you want to try it?

Milestone 5 skipped

Lot of changes in NetBeans source base. The new java infrastructure was integrated into NetBeans. The plus is that the editor is nicer, now we have 15 code completions etc. The minus is that Mobility Pack, all other modules that depended on the old MDR have to be rewritten to the new java infrastructure - Retouche. It will take some time... More then everybody expected. Hopefully at the end we will have Mobility Pack working again. The Mobility daily builds are without the main features now. Someday the builds didn't run at all.

That's are the reason why we don't publish Mobility Pack Milestone 5.

UPDATE: I forgot to notice - There is NetBeans Milestone 5 available. Do you wanna taste new editor features? Go and try it!

WTK on linux again...

That's the good news that you were waiting for. There will be WTK 2.5 for Linux.
To be strict: There will be Sun Java Wireless Toolkit for CLDC for Fedora Core.
How many of j2me developers is out there? Or did they convinced you to switch to windows?
