SDK 3.0 for mobile Java developers
By octav on Apr 24, 2009
Craig Gering's team recently released the Java ME SDK 3.0. The bundle includes the Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5.2 and JavaToolkit 1.0 for CDC. The tooling is predictable (in a good way): emulator (Windows only for now) and utilities for rapid application development using CLDC/MIDP, CDC and BD-J. In addition you also get LWUIT support. This is cool, especially since I've seen very rich UI on HTC phones at the MWC in Barcelona earlier this year.
The SDK will be complemented later on this summer by the release of Java FX 1.2. The team is shooting for Java One in June. I am looking forward to seeing on devices on the show floor.
