Craig Setera — April 19, 2009 @ 4:07 pm — Miscellaneous

Gustavo de Paula (Motorola) will be presenting a Webinar about the the current and future status of the Eclipse Mobile Tools for Java project, on Wednesday, April 22. His webinar will cover some of the new features of MTJ since the project was restarted based on the last release of the EclipseME project.

Repairing Sun’s WTK After a JDK Upgrade

Craig Setera — December 21, 2008 @ 5:32 pm — Miscellaneous

I have managed to get behind on the state of the Eclipse Mobile Tools for Java code. In an effort to catch up, I downloaded the latest code to my Ubuntu box and started up a runtime workbench. At that point, I needed to import my devices into the workspace and pointed to my Sun 2.5.2 Wireless Toolkit installation. To my surprise, it failed to be recognized. Given that I had fixed a similar problem prior to the MTJ 0.9.0 release, I was surprised to see a return of the problem.
Before digging too far into the MTJ code, I decided to see that the emulator was actually working correctly. I changed into the WTK emulator directory and attempted to run the emulator directly.

setera@ubuntu-laptop:~/software/wtk252/bin$ ./emulator
./emulator: 26: /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun/bin/java: not found

Ah Ha! My emulator installation is broken. What’s going on?

Eclipse MTJ at EclipseCon 2009

Craig Setera — @ 11:26 am — Miscellaneous

I’m happy to note that two of our Mobile Tools for Java talks have been accepted for EclipseCon 2009.  Our long talk “MTJ: Taking Mobile Java Developers To The Next Level” and the short talk “DSDP Mobile Tools for Java New and Noteworthy” were both accepted.  I especially want to thank Christian Kurzke and Motorola for allowing me to participate in these talks.

I’m still working out the details of my travel arrangements.  With any luck I will have some extra time to talk to those that may be interested in more details of MTJ.  If you have any interest in using or consuming MTJ, take some time to stop by these presentations.

Why Should My Company Get Involved with MTJ?

Craig Setera — November 30, 2008 @ 1:58 pm — Miscellaneous

I find myself in an interesting position with the Eclipse Mobile Tools for Java project.  Despite the fact that I am the original author of much of the current MTJ code as part of the EclipseME project, I have no corporate interest in MTJ.  My goal has always been to build a solid set of tools for use by developers like myself for developing for JavaME.  I wanted to allow a developer to target as many different devices as possible without ever leaving the Eclipse-based tooling.  Let’s face it, JavaME is hard enough to deal with and having good tools really does help.


EclipseME, MTJ and PlanetEclipse

Craig Setera — November 23, 2008 @ 12:54 pm — Miscellaneous

I’m not sure if it was fear of the fame and fortune associated with PlanetEclipse, but up until now eclipseme.org has not been aggregated by PlanetEclipse. As EclipseME has now become the base for the Eclipse Mobile Tools for Java implementation and thanks to some prodding by Mike Milinkovich, eclipseme.org is now part of PlanetEclipse.

New readers may find these recent posts on the transition to MTJ from EclipseME of particular interest.

These articles are primarily focused on use of the Mobile Tools for Java. I’ve recently had some interesting conversations with people in the mobile industry that lead me to believe it is time to address the question “How and why should my company get involved with the MTJ project?” I will attempt to provide my perspective on those questions in an upcoming post.
