  1. J2MEdit - a mobile device text editor (2 messages)

    You knew it was going to happen some day - J2MEdit has been released. This is a text editor providing syntax coloring for C++, Java, PHP, and HTML, written for a mobile device. It even provides collaboration features. From Javalobby:
    J2MEdit is the first and only tool that combines the power of a large programming IDE and the portability of a mobile phone to create a small and easy to use source code editor. This tool is ideal for professional developers, hobbyist programmers, or students. J2MEdit also allows you to create and edit regular word-wrapped text documents from your mobile device. When you want to transfer your files, simply email or upload them to the internet all from within J2MEdit. Key Features:
    • Create source code files in Java, C/C++, PHP, and HTML
    • Store files locally or over the internet
    • Compile Java and C/C++ source code directly from your mobile device
    • Create notes, memos, and word wrapped documents
    • Editing features such as copy, paste, find/replace, undo, and more...
    • Send files to anyone via Email
    • Load files to your mobile from the internet
    • Assign any key on your device to do exactly what you want
    • Advanced data compression allows for small and fast data transfers
    • Collaborate with others with the option to share the same files among multiple users
    • Personalize your interface from fonts and text color to screen size and background color
    • and more...
    Your Humble Editor is a big proponent of mobile computing, but the mere idea of programming Java or C++ on a T9-compatible keyboard (the kind of keyboard where the number "2" is used for a, b, and c as well) is horrifying. Even digraphs (where multiple characters are used for single characters - such as "<%" for "{") would be hard to use! That said, there had to be demand for this somewhere or else nobody would have written it. Anyone willing to provide use cases for it?

  2. Compiler?[ Go to top ]

    Who will take on the task to create a compiler for JavaME?

    I'm not sure this statement is logically sound.
