Second Annual Wristband Donation For Oracle Employees

Post Image

At JavaOne/Oracle Open World the wristband allows you to attend the "appreciation event" featuring Aerosmith, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Spacehog. Unfortunately Oracle employees don't get the wristband that allows everyone to attend that event! So I'm personally giving away my wristband and we might get some additional wristband donations to give...

IOS 8 Installs & Customizing the Pull To Refresh

Post Image

One of our pro users alerted us to an issue with iOS 8 that might trigger a case where apps can't be installed OTA (Over the air, via QR or email links) and only installed via itunes. We didn't experience this issue ourselves but it seems to be affecting many developers (not Codename One specific). This is due to caching of package bundle ID's and ...

JavaZone Trip Report

Post Image

JavaZone is winding down as I'm starting to write this although I'll probably post this after the videos are up to reference some of the interesting sessions I saw. Unfortunately JavaZone doesn't post workshop videos so my workshop won't be available, but frankly it wouldn't have worked well in video since it was relatively interactive hence there ...

8 to 6+

iOS 8 and iPhone 6/6+ are nearly upon us and Codename One is ready for both! We've just added device skins for iOS 6 and 6+, notice that due to the very high resolution you might want to disable scrolling. Notice that those skins are ridiculously large and as such might trigger an out of memory error when you try to run. To fix this just go to the...

Mirah for Codename One

Post Image

Steve Hannah of new iOS pipeline fame (as well as a ton of open source Codename One libraries and projects you can see here), has just announced one of his more ambitious undertaking: Mirah support for Codename One. Mirah is effectively Ruby without the performance penalty of an overly dynamic language, its compiled to bytecode and can thus be comp...

We've uploaded the full course video cast as a youtube playlist, just go thru the parts and in an hour and some change you should understand the basics of creating a simple Codename One client server application that runs on all mobile devices. The Udemy course is still there and probably useful if you live in a region where youtube is blocked. The...

Stacks & Flipping Switches

After a while with several new features being off by default we are officially flipping the switch on newer functionality in the build arguments. Notice that you can always disable this new functionality by explicitly defining the appropriate build argument, however you should probably let us know what isn't working for you. We are turning on the ...

Image Viewer From The Web

Post Image

I've been working on demos for JavaZone and built something small that has been asked a few times. Some developers were looking for URLImage support in image viewer but that's not a very good approach since URLImage expects images to be at a specific resolution and is thus very bad for images with unknown dimensions. However, ImageViewer thrives on...
