javame-sdk-profiler.pngAdmittedly, I am a bit late with this announcement. The Java ME SDK 3.0.5 was, in fact, released 3 weeks ago – but I haven’t had the time to blog about it.

Despite its minor number increment (from 3.0 to 3.0.5) there are substantial changes and improvements in the new Java ME SDK version, including:

  • Netbeans integration: All Java ME tools are now implemented as NetBeans plugins
  • LWUIT 1.5 support, including the new GUI Builder
  • Ability to use the NetBeans CPU profiling for Java ME applications and even VM classes
  • Network Monitor supports monitoring connections such as SIP, Bluetooth, and OBEX, and more
  • New tracing functionality for monitor events, method invocation, garbage collection, and more
  • Support for multiple Device Managers
  • WURFL device database updated with more than 1000 new devices
  • New or updated JSR support for a number of APIs

Definitely worth checking out. Find out more and download directly at the Java ME SDK OTN page.

Cheers,
