Porting to different platforms

Published on December 11, 2007

Mobile fragmentation has led to difficulties when it comes to porting an application across platforms. We are not talking about 3 or 5 platforms, but rather up to hundreds of different phone platforms/families with different capabilities!

Whats worse, J2ME itself has internal fragmentation too!

Some links:

  • MoSync - Write in C/C++, compile for all! Includes WM, Symbian, J2ME, etc… Need to verify how good it is though.

  • Metismo - Abstraction layer for J2ME
