This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Wow - I'm almost to "alpha" in my project! Yeah! I've been developing in J2SE with the intention that I'd like the app to run in both SE and ME. With that in mind, I've been very concerned about memory, and I think the thing will have a small enough footprint to run in ME. However, there is a little bit of AI in the code and I know that the app is VERY compute intensive.
So, the question is, are there any technologies that allow you to get a rough idea about J2ME runtime performance without actually having to put your code on a phone?
p.s. Several years ago I used the wirless toolkit - which was great. At the time, it didn't run on the Mac. Has that changed, or do you still need a PC to use the toolkit? If you use the toolkit, can it give you any indication of what performance on devices will be like? [ February 16, 2007: Message edited by: Bert Bates ]
Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
(If you're not on the edge, you're taking up too much room.)
Bert, if you coded in J2SE, are you sure those Java classes that you used will be in the J2ME APIs?
Not sure the best way to determine performance other than testing it on the device. Devices are still so different from each other that you can never predict if you app will even work on the device. Despite the specs.
