Topic: BUGbase / Will BUG be released this year?

I just have a suggestion, you should probably change the web site so that it doesn’t confuse people. For example when you click on the store link it says that the store will be up and running before the end of the year.

Topic: BUG SDK / basic application

Hi Orillion,
I’ve just gone through the hello world application as well and found the same thing as yourself. I found that when the Hello world is run the output from the program is hidden in all the other messages that are written to the console .

So it might be worth checking the console output. You might have been successful without even realising it

Topic: BUG SDK / basic application

Hi Orillion,

After reviewing the wiki page you referenced, we realized there was some confusing information in there that could possibly have led to the problems you’re having.

I just updated the instructions, so please take another look at the ‘Create a basic application’ wiki page and follow the steps listed there. If you are still having problems getting Hello World to run, let us know and we’ll do our best to help you out.

Topic: BUG SDK / Why phoneME and not j2se

I’ve read the blog post about sun and gpl but I still don’t understand why buglabs is not using j2se. The advantage would be running any java library. What is the advantage of using phoneME advanced?

The j2se classpath is big but it can be split into bundles may be not exactly OSGI bundles, but is possible to have a basic j2se classpath in the device and upload missing parts when some OSGI plugin needs it.
is there any legal restriction to do that? to split the classpath ? now sun is going to do that in their "java kernel".

And about android and iphone, I understand buglabs is not for exactly the cellphone consumers but there are a lot of applications that I think that could be shared between a cellphone like android and buglabs and it can benefit buglabs. Also android already have the UI solved.

thank you.

Topic: BUG SDK / basic application


I like the idea of the BUG. So I downloaded the necessary eclipse components and tried this:

bugcommunity . com /wiki/index.php/Create_a_basic_application

but when I start it nothing happens. I see the Virtual Bug, but it doen’t show anything.

Then I saw this:

bugcommunity . com /wiki/index.php/Run_an_application_in_Dragonfly_%28the_BUG_SDK%29

but it doesn’t help me anything, if I type "bundles" to the console, i get 23 states, but not what is described in the wiki .

Hope you can help me. Can’t do a real application if even Hello World doesn’t work… Maybe there’s a tutorial describing how to start…

2nd uestion: How can I test programms like LCD Helloworld, which I can’t get over eclipse?? i can download the *.jar file from the official bug page and then?? or maybe you can tell me a way how to find it in eclipse.

Topic: BUG SDK / Why phoneME and not j2se

FYI I am not affiliated with Buglabs, so this is just a bystanders view of things…

While the SDK states it’s PhoneME it is the Advanced version not the Feature version. What that means is you have much of the JavaSE support, such as Classloader, awt, and some more freedom than ME.

As for Android it is a different framework type and would be difficult to model the Bug to follow it. (again personal opinion here, and maybe Ken is thinking of doing that.) IMHO the Bug and Android are for different audiences/uses.

Topic: BUG SDK / Why phoneME and not j2se

I love this project, I’m excited with new things like Android and iPhone and when I found buglabs I got even more excited. I have a question, sorry if it has been asked:

why not using a j2se small VM and a j2se class path like openjdk, gnuclasspath or harmony ?

have you thought about the similarities with Android? could it be possible to find a way to run some applications both in android and in buglabs? not any application of course but may be some common framework?

thank you.
