"Write Once, Run Anywhere" not working for phones
"Though MIDP is used in half the world's 1.4 billion phones for downloading other bits of software, writing a program that can run on any handset still isn't possible. From CNetNews.com"
I'm currently working on a project where I have to manipulate the content of a TextField. To my surprise the behavior on the WKF21 emulator and the Nokia 6-series emulator is completely different. It works fine on the first and gives me a NullPointerException on the second.
And it's nothing I can do about it. And maybe on a Motorola handset or Samsung it will be something else.
It's really depressing
The only solution I can see today is to use a Canvas everywhere and do it yourself. And that is a thing I do not want to do or have time to do. It's like coding 15 years ago.
Other people annoyed about this "wild west" behavior from the manufactures?
