JavaOne 2009 BoF Presentation
Mobile application features typical in smartphones can also be implemented on mass-market featurephones using Java ME and Web 2.0 back-end services. In this presentation, we explore the multimodality and rich user interface of a search-driven portal application written in Java ME and broadly ported to mass-market featurephones. Multimodality enables the user to search, browse and discover using familiar activities on a mobile device - saying a phrase, entering text and snapping a photo.
Snippets of Java ME code used to implement voice recording, image capture, location awareness and advanced mapping are presented and analyzed.
