Java ME Roundup
By dannycoward on Oct 24, 2008
The Planetarium's had such a busy week with the Java SE 6u10 release event, we'll do a little roundup of news from the Java ME world.
As yet more people jump on the Blu-ray bandwagon (e.g. Microsoft, woman-kind), the Java TV guys wrote up, despite the ridiculous non-technical difficulty of doing so, how to get all the API docs in one place. (Or just use NetBeans).
And while some gave unorthodox advice for using the desktop JDK to develop Java ME apps on Linux, Sony-Ericsson was busy releasing their own tailor-made SDK for Java ME apps targetted at their phones.
Most prefer the more orthodox method of using the Sun Wireless Toolkit on Linux or Windows, for building things like a mapping application that uses your current location via a bluetooth enabled GPS reciever as described in this two part article - part 1 and part 2.
And Google popped out a Java ME Gmail client to make happy Blackberrys.
