Last post about devices with eSWT

I have posted about the first two devices that ship with eSWT. A colleague had pointed that there is already a total of 4 devices with eSWT support. Announced at the same time with N78 and N96, 6210 Navigator and 6220 classic do have eSWT loaded as well.

Obviously, I am not good at following the new device launches and it is imminent that there will be a lot of those in the near future. So I decided to teach how to fish instead of doing a bad job of providing. Forum Nokia provides product pages, such as this one for N78. These pages provide more relevant information for developers including a list of java APIs available on the device. The search application, that is also reachable from these pages, allows searching on the available java APIs on all Nokia devices.

Now you can see for yourself the devices that you can deploy your killer applications.

Announcing two Nokia devices with eSWT

Nokia N96Today Nokia has announced two new phones. Although Nokia announcing new devices may not sound special but these devices are. N78 and N96 are the first phones that will include eSWT pre-installed on the device. This is the first of many devices that will be based on S60 with eSWT. Judging from the last year, there will be millions of Eclipse technology installed devices, before you can say eSWT.

Sun talks OSGi on JavaOne?

I had a couple of session proposals for the JavaOne 2008 conference on eRCP and eSWT. They did not go through. I first thought that eRCP project would not be presented in the technical sessions of the JavaOne conference at all. Then I have noticed this session, apparently Sun wanted to keep the opportunity to talk about OSGi on the mobile java to herself. From the looks of it, the talk is mainly about Sprint's titan developer platform which I have blogged about some time ago. I am glad it is rather Darryl Mocek from Sun than I, talking about eRCP related technologies.
If you are interested on how to develop applications for the eRCP (or next generation mobile java as some call it) we will have a tutorial at EclipseCon 2008, see you all at EclipseCon.
