Editor's Corner: Live from JavaOne 2005!

I'm writing this week's issue of FierceDeveloper live from the opening days of JavaOne 2005 in San Francisco. The big news for J2ME developers is that Sun has heard your complaints about compatability issues. The company is working with Nokia, Siemens, Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications, and Motorola to improve testing and to encourage universal standards. Sun is also completing work on the first draft of JSR 232, which governs "Mobile Operational Management Submission." This standard will make it much easier to update and delpoy J2ME software. Jonathan Schwartz's big news is that the Java System Application Server will be released as open source. This may be a big deal to J2ME developers, but it reiterates Sun's commitment to open source software. - Eli
