I've been so busy I just don't have time to blog as much as I should. I do hope next month will be better in this regard (more on that below) but right now I have to make an important announcement. There are new chip vulnerabilities I'm sure you heard a lot about specifically Meltdown & Spectre. Thankfully we are at a layer that shouldn't be impacted by these issues but we need to update our servers and will be doing so over the course of the next few days (possibly more as patches get updated).Read More
We've just added support for Travis CI in your Codename One projects. Travis can be set up to automatically test your project (i.e. run unit tests) on a variety of different platforms every time you commit changes to github.Read More
I hope you all had a great time over the holidays, I was working a lot but was able to enjoy the relative quiet of the holiday period to get some stuff done. There are a lot of new features I'd like to update you about and I will over the next few weeks (albeit slower than usual). Despite my best efforts I still didn't finish the full Uber clone app course but I'm getting REALLY close. There isn't that much work left to do though and I'm starting to trickle out the module lessons.Read More
Happy holidays, Merry Christmas, happy new year to all. All of us here at Codename One hope you have a lovely vacation if you are taking one. As I mentioned before we are still working but only partially due to the holidays. We still got a lot of things out and have a lot more coming up. I will blog more about it in January. In the meantime, I'll leave another teaser for my current project...Read More
I've been remarkably busy with the Uber clone application. Cloning Uber proved to be pretty easy but writing the material about it is much harder so I'm taking longer than I anticipated to finish everything. I'm already up to slide 200 and I've barely started... I think I might end up with more than 1,000 slides in this module!Read More
Before I go into the details a quick announcement, we need to update some of our push servers. We will have a short amount of downtime on Sunday December 3rd around 8AM GMT. This update should be very fast and barely noticeable but it might impact some push message deliverability for a short period.Read More
We have loads of demo Codename One apps hosted on Github, however cloning and running a project can be a little tricky because we generally don't publish the dependent jar files (e.g. CodenameOne.jar) in the Github repository. This helps keep the repository lean, but it adds some steps to the process of cloning and running the project.Read More
We are thrilled to announce the release of Codename One 3.8. Codename One is an open source "Write Once Run Anywhere" mobile solution for Java developers!
This new release significantly refines the native look and feel of Codename One, it brings the GUI builder to a new level with styling support. It finally adds Mac OS appstore distribution support which means all the major appstores are now supported targets for Codename One applications.
I published this video a while back but it was longer and a bit confusing (over 40 minutes). Since some developers watch it before getting into Codename One I thought it would be in order to streamline it into a more manageable length and transcribe the content like I did with the newer videos. I also cleaned it up a bit and the result is below.Read More
