This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Welcome Satish Kore. I look forward to reading your book whether I win it or buy it!
Given that powerful/capable Google Android-based mobile devices are increasingly in the hands of users (Motorola, Samsung, and HTC all have new Google phones out this fall) how well suited is Flex for developing Java apps on these devices? Is it even possible?
I am not sure that I understand following statement
Flex for developing Java apps
If you are asking whether one can develop application for Mobiles using Flex, then answer is yes/no, that is because all latest Android devices have full support for Flash Player 10, and your Flex applications run on Flash Player so theoretically you can run Flex applications on Mobile devices that support Flash Player in the browser.
Apart from this Adobe is also working on light weight Flex framework for Mobile devices that can be used for developing mobile applications but this project is in initial stage and expected to be available in 2010. Have a look http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flex/mobile/
Thanks Satish. By "Flex for developing Java apps" I mean developing Java applications that run on the Android platform and use Flex for the user interface. Obviously I'm completely new to Flex, so perhaps this doesn't even make sense!
