As blogged a few days ago the LWUIT webinar “Go Mobile with Our Lightweight User Interface Toolkit for Java” is scheduled for Sep 16. To attend, please register.

newsflash-757208.jpg 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.

Cheers,

lwuit-logo.jpg While I was traveling on business the LWUIT team released version 1.4 – both in source and binary form.

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

For more information check out Shai’s blog. As a reminder, if you’re looking for an overview of LWUIT and an introduction into some of the new 1.3 and 1.4 features check out my article.

Virtual keyboard screen shot.png 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.

MWC2010-party-guide.png Talking about Mobile World Congress parties: Check out this cool app by Ofir Leitner. It’s a Java ME app, using LWUIT and the HTMLComponent. Runs beautifully on my Sony Ericsson phone.

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!

Cheers,

mwc-2010.gifUPDATE:

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:

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.

Cheers,

– Terrence
