Oracle Lite on a Smartphone

October 12th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Ever since I started working with Oracle Lite, I have worked with Win32, Webtogo, or OC4J applications. This week, I am picking up a Samsung ACE World Edition Smartphone and I plan on putting some demo and sample applications on the phone to get my feet wet from a different perspective. Working on a small device is obviously different from a resource rich laptop, so I want to get the feel for working with different constraints. Also, need to freshen up my .Net skills. So, in the end, I will be killing 3 birds with one stone. I will keep my progress posted.

    Way to go Greg! I have no doubt that it will be a source of all kinds of great ideas!

    Well, good news and bad news. The good news is that I got Oracle Lite installed on the SmartPhone and did a successful sync. The bad news is that Oracle Lite does not support the Oracle Lite SDK on the SmartPhone. What this means is their user interface on the Phone is too big for the screen, and doesn’t quite work right. So, what a developer has to do is use the APIs that are provided to create their own interface. This is fine, since I have always created my own sync interface. Nothing new.

    Hi Nikolay,

    Like many things I would like to do… my priority list doesn’t let me get to this thing. Now that Oracle Lite works on the Blackberry, I might be switching gears in a hurry… which is fine by me because it’s all java based.
