Good deal Sambuca,  I on the other hand have gotten zero done.  Last week was a nightmare here with my house closeing that was suppose to be this past friday now this upcoming friday.  I do finally have the clear to close from the mortgage company hopefully this week should be smoother.  Also trying to wrap up a bunch of work projects before end of year to start with clean slate in 09.

I'm going to need to see some docs on what the heck VMC is all about.  I searched the wiki and saw notta...anywhere else I should look?  I know you gave that explaination but it isnt enough for me to fully understand.

Well here is my thing on the UI...I know the images for the UI of controlling the media director are basically hard set coming from the media directory themselves.  I was thinking though there would be a great use for a "Intro" page that allowed a user to goto a settings page(for key mappings and/or whatever else we may think of), an about page(with tribute to hari :-P), and then a connect button etc....With the current setup would be problamatic to put into place a "Settings" area with it connecting immediatly to the orbiter.  I may be crazy but that is the idea.

Let me know thoughts.

I've done similar in J2EE thus where I got the premise for a static class as well ;-)

J2ME has problems with any logging since even System.out is not usable in many mobile devices.  There are a couple of "log frameworks" out there including ones based on log4j

No biggie on the hold I said my time to work is also limited so I can understand.  What changes did you make to the GUI classes so far?  This thing could really use a UI overhaul.   This is the first J2ME I've done and have already realized the UI side of it is rather a pain.  My rust from 2 years off from java is wearing off quick riding a bike...hehe

ouch that smack hurt....sorry still new to the under pinnings of this all.  I've been using the system from end user side for a while...still don't get all the pieces running the back fully.

So if I understadn VMC would for this/us be a great way to "cache" the menu systems?  If so I would think jsr075 would be good for that purpose as well.

I'm not sure all of what I would put in it but I'm thinking of doing out a "Settings" set of screens.  One thing I know might be beneficial would be settings for the image quality etc for slower(or faster) bluetooth systems on certain phones.  I can use the datastore on the phone for storing these but was thinking for defaults about loading from a config.xml kinda thing....pretty sure I would have to use jsr075 to read that though. 


What files are you/have you changed?  I could work seperatly as I'm not really changing the "server interaction" classes it more about UI for me right now.

Sambuca and Hari,

I would have to edit most all files to implement the jsr075 logging properly.  I would of cource create a logger class kinda thing and have it driven off the availablity and maybe a setting as well.  Would default back to doing printlns in case jsr075 not there. I don't want to run into issues with trying to merge or mess up each others code.

I work for myself and my schedule is a bit "wierd" so I prolly wont have much more extra time to do this stuff then you guys.

Hey guys,

I'm a bit rusty as I havent touched java in about 1.5 years but did j2ee for 6+ so figured I'd play around a bit.  I know hari is more or less too crunched to get more done on this but is sambuca working on it?  If so could I get a copy of your current work set?  Or the one for the last jad you did with the noted improvements...

I've not done much mobile development(mostly web stuff for me) but was wondering about a more robust system using maybe jsr75(which would mean probably only smart phones) to not only do logging but allow config files etc to be read/written.

I as well am having a hard time with the streamzap :(
I've had it since I use to run a gentoo/myth as my media machine but switching to lmce I've lost it...would love to get it working again.  There needs to a wiki page for it as it does seem rather complex to newbs but when I search the wiki for streamzap I get nota!  Can someone give us a step by step on this?
