With the 3.4 release we discussed the process of modernizing the demos and the first one we picked
for this task is the camera demo which is probably the easiest one of all the demos…
The demo is trivial and doesn’t really demonstrate anything other than capturing and showing an image captured
from the camera/retrieved from the gallery but this is where it gets interesting. It even works in the
Notice that since browsers don’t have anything quite like a “gallery” that feature won’t be very useful but capture
works really well.
Check out the full source code for the demo in the
github repository for the CameraDemo notice that
as we announced yesterday we are
moving the demos to separate repositories and will retire the monolithic
codenameone-demos repository. This will allow
us to be more nimble and will also simplify the process of working with these demos.
This demo will be integrated into the upcoming new project wizards in the various IDEs. This plays into the
move to Java 8 in the plugins which we also announced yesterday.
There are many demos in the codenameone-demos
repository and some outside of it. Most of them are out of date and “abandoned” we’ll try to make this a weekly
segment of moving demos to the newer API’s and refining them. Some of these demos will take more effort (e.g Kitchen Sink)
but others should be simpler.
Ideally all demos should be included in the IDE plugins and should be accessible by everyone easily.
