Just wanted to let you know that the LWUIT webinar I did two weeks ago is now available in the archive for viewing.
If you missed my talk “Beyond Smartphones: Rich Applications and Services for the Mobile Masses” on Monday you can read a detailed summary on it here, thanks to Janice Heiss.
But there are lots of interesting sessions and labs that might be easily overlooked so today I’d like to share my recommended list – basically, things that interest me from a core platform/language/mobile/embedded perspective. Guaranteed to be totally subjective ;-). So, here we go:

As posted before I will be doing at least two sessions this year. Just wanted to alert you so reserve your spot via the JavaOne Schedule Builder as rooms are smaller this year and may fill up quickly:

- S314184: Java Mobile & Embedded Community: Meetup and What’s New (Tuesday, 6:00 pm, Hilton Yosemite C)
I am currently putting the finishing touches on a new webinar titled “Advanced User Interfaces for Mass-Market Phones with LWUIT”. The webinar content will roughly parallel my LWUIT article published a few weeks ago, but with additional information on LWUIT 1.4, more coding demos, and a live Q & A session.
So mark your calendars for September 16. I will follow up with more information and the webinar link here on this blog once I have the details.
With the new XHTML component rendering dynamic web content and embedding rich text locally in the Java ME applications will be easier than ever before. Additional features such as a BlackBerry support and enhanced virtual keyboard functionality will enable Java ME developers to target a much wider set of devices for creative and compelling Java ME applications.
Here is a brief list of new features for version 1.3 and 1.4:
LWUIT 1.3 main features are:
- Additional UI Controls: Tree, Table, Spinner
- Bi-directional text support: Extends LWUIT support for right-to-left languages such as Arabic, Hebrew, Syriac, Thaana
- Virtual keyboard support: This functionality enhances the touch screen support through LWUIT by enabling customizable user input from applications
- Enhancements to Theme Creator: The tool now enables using SVG backgrounds for creating themes
LWUIT 1.4 main features are:
- XHTML MP1.0 support
- BlackBerry binaries
- Enhancements to VirtualKeyboard
- Time line animations
- Multi-line textfield
I’ve been busy lately with various preparations for JavaOne. But I managed to find some cycles and write an article on LWUIT 1.3 and some of the new features now available in the open source repository, such as the new UI controls, the HTML component, and more. Code included!
“Rich Applications for Billions of Devices: What’s New in LWUIT?” is now posted on SDN, java.sun.com, and java.net.
Ofir built it over the weekend, but it comes complete with touch-screen support, animations, physics-supported scrolling, transitions, animations, and mapping capabilities. Includes all the free parties. Nice job!

It’s that time again … Mobile World Congress is upon us next week.
Sun and Oracle will be present in several locations exhibiting technologies, products, and services focused on communication.
At the Oracle Pavilion (AV #44) there will be demonstrations of the Sun Netra 6000 blades, the Oracle Communications Order and Service Management 7.0 solution, and a number of other products. More information and links can be found in the press release.
The Oracle-Sun booth in hall 8 (#8C55) will be all about mobile and wireless technologies, tools, and programs:
- JavaFX platforms and developer tools
- The Sun Java Wireless Client (SJWC) platform and related products and services
- The Lightweight User Interface Toolkit (LWUIT)
- Java ME developer tools and programs
- Developer programs
- Java Card 3.0
- Carrier-grade end-tp-end content delivery solutions
- Embedded Java
- and more …
There are also a number of events planned by both Oracle and Sun. Come see us at the booth for more information.
I’ll be at the Oracle-Sun booth every day, so please stop by for a chat or to ask questions.
And finally, MWC is known for it’s parties and networking. I’ll definitely be at Swedish Beers – hope to see you there.
