Quick Updates...

Posted by brunogh on August 26, 2008 at 6:29 PM PDT

I am in a rush, like you, that probably are too. Who told us to chose a computing related profession?! Medicine changes once a century! But, because our world is dynamic, here it goes some quick updates that I can't miss:

  • Kicking Butt with MIDP and MSA
  • Some weeks ago I finally have finished reading Kicking Butt with MIDP and MSA (thanks Aaron Houston and Mark DeHart for the copy). If you are new to Java ME, get a copy, if you are not, get a copy too. The book is very practical and interesting. It talks about all the JSRs that are part of MSA, so it is definitely very useful. Right now, there is a nice podcast at M&E with the author, Jonathan Knudsen.

  • Marge Podcast
  • Lucas Torri and I gave a mini talk about Marge at Community Corner during JavaOne. It became a podcast and the slides are here. Take a look if you interested in JSR 82!

  • M3DD CFP
  • M&E will be hosting the second version of an event that get a new word and its name became Mobile, Media & Embedded Developer Days 2008. The event will be at Santa Clara Auditorium on November 12-13, 2008. The event is getting bigger, so do not miss the Call For Papers, which has already started and runs until September 15, 2008. For more information, read Roger Brinkley's entry and go to https://developerdays.dev.java.net.

That's it for today! Let's go! Let's go! :)

Cheers,

Hello Ian! JavaFX syntax has changed some stuff since I have wrote that, also it became compiled. Are that the errors you mention or are you having issues with Bluetooth? Cheers!

Hi Bruno! I'm new to JavaFX and came across your brilliant application at http://weblogs.java.net/blog/brunogh/archive/2007/09/my_first_fx _blu_1.html However in IDE 6.1 it is producing some errors. Any help for this struggling novice would be gratefully received! Thanks, Ian

Hi Bruno! I think they are mainly syntax errors. Such a shame because I'm really looking forward to trying out your application. Any help gratefully received! Main.fx:32: Sorry, I was trying to understand an identifier but I got confused when I saw ':' which is an operator. Perhaps you are missing a 'identifier'. var: self Main.fx:35: Sorry, I was trying to understand an expression but I got confused when I saw '{'. Perhaps you are missing a '}'. inquiryListener : new InquiryListener() { Main.fx:36: Sorry, I was trying to understand an expression but I got confused when I saw ':' which is an operator. operation deviceDiscovered(device: RemoteDevice, deviceClass: DeviceClass) { Main.fx:36: Sorry, I was trying to understand an expression but I got confused when I saw ':' which is an operator. operation deviceDiscovered(device: RemoteDevice, deviceClass: DeviceClass) { Main.fx:36: Sorry, I was trying to understand a suffixed expression but I got confused when I saw '{'. operation deviceDiscovered(device: RemoteDevice, deviceClass: DeviceClass) { Main.fx:37: Sorry, I was trying to understand a type specification but I got confused when I saw 'last' which is a keyword. insert device as last into self.foundDevices; Main.fx:38: Sorry, I was trying to understand the module contents but I got confused when I saw '}'. } Main.fx:40: Sorry, I was trying to understand the module contents but I got confused when I saw 'inquiryCompleted' which is an identifier. operation inquiryCompleted(devices: RemoteDevice[]) {
