Sun offers Java dev kit for device apps

From InfoWorld: A software development kit for Java ME (Micro Edition) 3.0 that features integration with Windows Mobile devices is now available, according to Sun Microsystems.

Java ME puts Java on mobile units. Built to run on Windows XP and Vista, the SDK is the successor to Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5.2 and Java Toolkit 1.0 for CDC (Connected Device Configuration).

Some critics wanted to know when Mac, Linux, and OpenSolaris support would be offered. "Well, [Sun] can be releasing Java ME Platform SDK 10.0 for all I care, but where is the Mac and Linux support that people have been wanting for years," asked one person online.

Sun, however, was cheery about the release, which became available earlier this month.

"It's a massive release of tasty new stuff for mobile and embedded developers," said Sun's James Gosling, CTO of the Sun Client Software Group, in a blog entry.
