News: Java ME 3.0, Drools 5.0

  • Java ME 3.0 SDK
    Personally I expected Java ME to get lost or merge into other mobile technologies, right at that moment SUN announced the release of 3rd version of the Micro Edition.  More infos and downloads at SUN (link).
    Is the equation Java ME + Java FX versus Android ?
  • Drools 5.0
    I am very attracted by workflow and rules engine after working with hardcoded business rules in various legacy systems. The learning curve seems to be very steep to me, but this investment will be returned once you get it rolling. Drools now comes as 4 modules (Guvnor, Expert, Fusion,Flow) to cover an integrated platform for Rules, Workflow and Event Processing. More infos and download at JBoss (link)
