Projects / SuperWaba


SuperWaba is a VM for PDAs. Because of the way it was written, you can use Java to develop programs for it. It supports exceptions, threads, many user interface controls, double and long 64-bit types, grayscale, color, 3D controls, and JNI and Java libraries, among other features. The project has been superseded and replaced with TotalCross.

    Release Notes: The Symbian S60v3 license has been updated to expire in 2017. There are a few other bugfixes.

    •  28 Sep 2007 09:31

      Release Notes: A stack trace at device giving "empty stack" at most situations was fixed. Superwaba's installations were not working with Windows Mobile 5/6 devices, so this has been fixed. A problem when generating the install files for s60v3 was fixed. If you intercept the SK_LAUNCH key on Symbian, the right (exit) button will no longer exit. A problem was fixed in Treo devices when a key of the device was assigned to a SW application and the key was pressed while the device was off. MultiEdit now correctly handles the ENTER key. Support for Janam XP20 and XP30 was fixed.

            Well worth it, and now with Wiki
            It's a great product and we're now using it for commercial applications. We only have to develop one application and it can run across a wide range of platforms.

            There were a few features it didn't have - but we soon added those thanks to Open Source and SuperWaba's ability to support native libraries.

            Deploying many files and a copy of SuperWaba to clients has been simplified by using package installers like CrunchIt for WinCE/PocketPC and Nutshell for PalmOS.

            The Jump compiler looks useful too, though I've not explored it much. I've taken to using the Wiki site a lot; there's a very extensive FAQ there.
