This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of Programmer's Guide to Java SE 8 Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) and have Khalid A Mughal & Rolf W Rasmussen on-line! See this thread for details.
I've been in the same boat as many of you are right now, or have been in the past. You've got an iPhone or an iPad or an iPod, have an idea for an app, but your langue de guerre is Java. You think about learning Objective-C, taking a crack at it, but for whatever reasons you slowly gravitate back towards Java. Aha! We say in our minds "Android it is then..." and then you look at UI definitions in XML and you think that something's wrong with the world. I know I did.
I would encourage you to pay us a visit at www.emitrom.com and look at our GWT4Ti Mobile offering. We can't say that we've solved ALL problems (for instance, we are working on debugging capabilities from the IDE), but we can certainly say that we are one step closer to true Java happiness :-) You'll find more info in our blog, and a Hello World example in our forum.
Drop us a line on the site or you can follow us @emitromtweets on Twitter. Good things are brewing, so stay tuned.
