Sun Unveils JavaFX Mobile
Today Sun announced a mobile version of its JavaFX platform. JavaFX Mobile is built on JavaME, and will let developers more easily create mobile applications, as well as port existing applications to mobile platforms. JavaFX will allow developers to tie their applications into other apps on the handset, including the address book, the Bluetooth stack, the camera, and location services. It also has the ability to deliver better audio/video, richer graphics and animations, and better interaction with the mobile web. In addition to announcing the platform, Sun also said that Sony Ericsson, LG and Sprint have committed to using the platform to develop content for their devices.
