Java News from Tuesday, October 2, 2007

Version 2.3.0 of jMock, an open source (BSD license) library for testing Java code using mock objects, has been released. "This release brings the JUnit 4 support in jMock 2 in line with JUnit version 4.4 and adds a few minor improvements, such as tweaks to error messages."

The call for papers is now open for the first ever Java Mobile & Embedded Developer Conference January 22-24, 2008 in Santa Clara, California:

The conference is devoted solely to the technologies of mobile and embedded Java platforms and is targeted for application developers of intermediate and advanced skill levels, platform developers, and technical personnel at tool vendors, OEMs and carriers.

Content areas are expected to include the traditional phone and PDAs development on the Java ME platform as well as SunSPOT wireless sensors, Trackbot and Java robotics, and other small Java systems used in machinery and process control but centered around Java, JavaME, and open source aspects of Java. We want this to be a community-driven conference. We are looking forward to your involvement in making this an interesting and interactive event.

Paper submissions are due by October 31. I won't be able to make it this year,. Maybe next year.
