To use this feature you can just invoke putClientProperty(propertyName, v...

Java One Detailed Trip Report

Post Image

There is absolutely no way I can recall everything that went on in JavaOne but I will try to do my best. I arrived sick and on pretty strong medication for my sinuses so my recollection might be a bit hazy, I did meet great people and had loads of fun. Before JavaOne started I had a meeting with Arno of the XMLVM project, I was hoping to get more ...

However, the best thing was meeting James Gosling and talking to him about Codename One! I had a lot of doubts about making the trip so soon after JavaZone trip but Geertjan convinced me by...

JavaZone Trip Report

First off, JavaZone is indeed the most fun conference I've been to (to be fair, haven't been to comicon), you get there are 8:00AM and a bit later a cover band goes on stage in the middle of the ...

Our email api only supported a single attachment until now. We just added an api that allows for multiple attachments which we will add in the next update. Notice that multiple attachments will only work on iOS/Android at the moment. Also in this update you would find a fix for the Twitter service (see the TwitterRESTService class) and some other...

Till The End Of The Form

Post Image

We've had pull to refresh for quite some time which is a really nice feature useful for pulling new updates. We also always had infinite lists using a smart list model approach, however up until now we didn't have a standard implementation of an infinite container with arbitrary components. In some of the newer web UI's such as Tumblr and Twitter ...
