Google’s Android

One of the cool things of Android is, that is uses Apache Harmony. For those, that don’t know it, Harmony is Apache’s Java-Impl., which is (for some reasons) not yet tested by the “Java TCK”.

But, what does that mean for J2ME ? I worked with J2ME in the past and kind of liked it, but Android gives you more, much more!

Will Android kinda kill J2ME ?

Howdy!

    Good question.
    I think it will indeed do that. Not sure about the time frame though. And (Sun-)politics might slow this down. But it surely seems the natural outcome.
    Certainly considering the fact that today’s “mobile” devices also don’t suffer from the constraints (HD, RAM) they used to suffer from at the time JME was conceived.
    The success of the iPhone underlines this direction. I wonder about the interaction between Apple and Android…
