A couple of news items have piled up over the last few days that I briefly want to bring to your attention:

  • The JavaFX Preview SDK was announced two weeks ago. Check out the announcement on the JavaFX blog.
  • SDN is running an "Ask the Experts" session on the Java FX Preview SDK, starting today running through August 22. Got a question? Post it during this session and get answers from three key members of Sun's JavaFX engineering team.
  • MSA2's Public Review phase is coming soon. Here's an opportunity to review the various JSRs planned for inclusion in its Limited, Subset, and Full versions: "Mobile Service Architecture 2—Coming Your Way"
  • Finally, SDN has published a nice overview article which looks at the economics, cost of entry, and learning curve in using Java ME to penetrate the mobile market. It also introduces the JSRs included in the MSA standard.

Cheers,
