Re: [ecf-dev] newsreader contribution

Hi Scott,

I agree, it would be a good thing to pursue CDC 1.1/Foundation 1.1 level compatibility. Through my recent run-in with J2ME, I've learned that some libraries are unavailable because of this reason. ECF boasts some really valuable libraries which are very appealing to mobile computing applications. Keeping that in mind can only be a good thing.

Best regards,

4) I notice that the execution environment for most of the plugins was set to J2SE-1.5. This is *fine*, but *if possible*, it would be great to move this *down* to J2SE-1.4 or even CDC 1.1/Foundation 1.1. This would allow the relevant code to run on smaller/older runtimes. For example, perhaps the model bundle could be moved down to CDC 1.1/Foundation 1.1

Just out of curiosity, which devices are there that still linger on 1.4? Is it really of interest to run a newsreader on them? (I've heard mentions of ski-lifts and similar).

:-)...yeah...all those ski lifts that want to talk nttp (to notifiy the skiers of the load on the chair lift via the newsgroup).

As per Thomas' point, there's not much to be gained these days by moving down from 1.5 to 1.4. If (some) things can be moved down to CDC 1.1/Foundation 1.1 that would have a greater effect.
