Topic: BUG SDK / SDK "screen" size

Excellent software design!!!
Hard coded values in TWO separate places, instead of putting it in a configuration file.......

public void start() throws Exception {
Properties p = new Properties();
p.put("Module", "Virtual LCD Module");

moduleRef = context.registerService(IModuleControl.class.getName(), this, null);

Dictionary props = new Hashtable();
props.put("width", new Integer("320"));
props.put("height", new Integer("240"));

moduleDisplayServReg = context.registerService(IModuleDisplay.class.getName(), this, props);

public Frame getFrame() {
frame = new Frame();
frame.setSize(320, 240);

return frame;

Which means I now have to download the source and completely recompile a class to change the screen size.

and it's in:


just incase anyone else should want to find it.

Topic: Suggestion Box / ideas that are needed

well, users have very different backgrounds, and ideas about the bug. my personal interest lies mostly in innovation, modularization and abstract ideas/results. but i also want to support a strong community, and a kind of "company 2.0" that involves the user. In germany websites like textbroker.de and criggle.de appeared, where users can contribute with texting, designing, etc., but why take the detour, when todays communication tools allow direct involvement.

Topic: BUGbase / Slim line?

I think if it where I’d want a BUGpda slim line. Full touch screen on the front, two BMI on the back. Make sure it has wireless/wifi, microphone, speaker, a gps, and a headphone jack. That could replace pretty much every device I have now from cell phone to Ipod to Garmin GPS to PDA. Then the two module connects would allow me to expand for the more unusual applications with a motion detector etc. Some people may say camera on a PDA but for me, I’d rather plug in a bigger module and get better quality than the tiny cell phone style CCD cameras, that isn’t much better than no camera at all.

Topic: Suggestion Box / ideas that are needed

that’s a great suggestion, and is a topic we’ve discussed quite a bit recently. We definitely plan to involve the community in a lot of activities like these. We’re actually bringing on another person into the team specifically to help make sure we do exactly this!

Out of curiosity, any topics you’d be particularly interested in discussing?

Topic: BUGbase / Slim line?

good feedback everyone, these are exactly the kinds of points we are interested in hearing about. There’s the constant challenge of figuring out the fine lines between making a product too bloated (and expensive) versus not useful enough. We’ll start posting a few surveys in the future as to what tradeoffs everyone’s comfortable with and help understand priorities, but in the meantime, any other thoughts on what a BUGbase "should" have?

Topic: Meet & Greet / Hey everyone

Thanks ace (can I call you ace? :D )! While the SDK we provide runs in Java, nothing stops you from using the BUG as a Linux machine to do virtually anything you want with. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Topic: BUG SDK / SDK "screen" size

As far as I know it is set in the LCDModlet class

* @return Returns AWT Frame
public Frame getFrame() {
frame = new Frame();
frame.setSize(320, 240);

return frame;

As well as in the start() method, it sets the width/height as properties.

It is in package com.buglabs.bug.emulator.module.lcd,

Topic: Way Off Topic / Shipment

Hi enicky,

I apologize but unfortunately we don't have an international shipping plan currently in place. You must have a billing and shipping address within the United States to place an order, but we will keep this space updated on international shipping information as it become available.


So the thing is ... a friend of mine is coming to the java - one conference and is staying in the US for a week or 2 ... so I could use his hotel address as shipment / billing address ? :?:

Topic: BUG SDK / SDK "screen" size

Hi Guys,
can you add something to the SDK so that the bug screen size is selectable.

Or at least point to the place where it can be changed.
