Flash Lite to Java Midlet in 10 seconds

I am currently helping Sony Ericsson as a community manager for their developer site. As part of this I’m blogging over at blogs.sonyericsson.com and just recently I wrote a short post on how to convert swf to jar for mobile phones.
In case you didn’t know, Sony Ericsson has a framework embedded in most of their newer phones called Project Capuchin, making it possible to run a Flash Lite application inside a Java midlet. Quite cool, actually.


Running JBoss 4.2.3 on OSX

A simple gotcha, but anyway… If you get an exception like:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/ejb/Stateless
at org.jboss.ejb3.EJB3Util.isStateless(EJB3Util.java:42)

When trying to run jboss 4.2.3 on OSX, it’s because you’re using java 1.5 in stead of 1.6. Follow the instructions here to change.

Updated:…and then of course Eclipse stops working. Here’s how to update.
