By vadirajvd on Mar 03, 2009
This is the report from Vellore Institute of Technology, where last Sunday (1st March, 2009) a technical workshop was conducted on Java ME, Java FX and OpenSolaris.
One thing that made everyone of us curious about the college campus was the rail track right in between the campus as shown here.
We (a group of seven Sun Engineers) reached the campus one day before the event. The day started early which protected us from the direct contact of the radiant Sun. We divided the event into three parellel tracks - Java ME, Java FX and OpenSolaris and occupied the computer labs as per the plan. Myself, Varun and Amit covered Java ME, Glashfish and MySQL. Lawrence and Blesson covered Java FX and Gowtham and Nirmal covered OpenSolaris.
There was a tremendous interest towards Java ME in the students who where mostly in third year of their engineering course. I see many students already wrote few small Java ME programs and have them on their cellphones. The questions they asked showed that they were learning and writing programs since long time and gathered sufficient knowledge and skill.
My session was on Java ME with a demo. Slides here and I happen to get the "Hello Mobile World" program written (on NetBeans 6.5 IDE) , tested (using Nokia S60 emulator) and transfered to my cellphone and ran it live! Also, I was able to hook up the client-server tutorial on NetBeans Mobility learning trail.
This report do not contain photos from the event, since I forgot to carry the camera to the event
