The MTJ project of the Eclipse Foundation has released version 0.9 of the Mobile Tools for Java. Mobile Java developer support under Eclipse gets better and better thanks to the Guys at Motorola. And of course lets not forget the initial work done by Craig of EclipseME fame.
Eclipse MTJ provides an IDE for creating applications for Mobile Java devices. Version 0.9 brings easier mobile applications development for devices from major manufactures like Motorola, Nokia and Sony Ericsson.
The Eclipse MTJ 0.9 release includes the following:
- Functional equivalence to EclipseME 1.7.9
- Support for all Unified Emulator Interface (UEI) compliant SDKs, including Motorola, Nokia, and Sony Ericsson
- Support for Java ME emulators including MPowerplayer and MicroEmu
- Preprocessor of Java ME code integrated on the build environment
- Import of EclipseME and NetBeans projects
- Improved support for MIDlet development and deployment via the Application descriptor editor
- Multiple hosts support (WIN32, Linux and Mac OS X)
Eclipse MTJ is being supported and adopted by a large vendor and user community, including a number of the major handset manufacturers. Moving forward, the EclipseME user community is encouraged to migrate to Eclipse MTJ releases.
Eclipse MTJ 0.9 is available for download from www.eclipse.org/dsdp/mtj/.
