OpenBaseMovil
Welcome at » 2008 » January » 11

We’re working to release as soon as possible the J2ME database engine, OpenBaseMovil-db, along with the required dependencies.

In the mean time, we have written a short developer guide that will let you take a deeper look at the database.

It also contains the specification of the proposed SQL engine that will sit on top of the current API-based one, as requested by some of you by email. This SQL engine is to be written, but for most applications I believe it is not really necessary.

We are very happy of the echo and the comments that we are receiving from the community, we hope that you find our framework really useful.

Stay tunned, the database engine will be released soon, and a little afterwards the first complete release with the ui engine.

Here is the OpenBaseMovil-db Developer Guide in PDF format.

Update: The document has been updated with some minor changes in the SQL format and some examples.

Hi all,

We’ve just started to use the project wiki (provided by SourceForge). We plan to put there useful information about the platform, but mainly as a vehicle for collaborative definition of objectives and specifications.

The first thing we are defining and discussing is the specification for the OpenMidsets platform. The idea behind it is to create a first well defined draft that will guide the development of the host application itself, but more over the foundations for the programming model for the hosted applications.

We are defining the life cycle of an OpenMidset, the intercommunication protocol to allow applications to collaborate between them and to access system resources in a uniform way that can be really portable to platforms other than J2ME (like Android).

It has very little information yet, bet we expect to put more over the next weeks and we’d like you to share your ideas with us to make it a better platform for powerful mobile applications.
