    Is there a way of converting Flash Lite to J2ME?

    I'm making Flash Lite apps that I want to use on my Nokia N95 8GB. Thing is, I want to let other people use my apps too... But the people who will use it have phones that don't support Flash Lite standalone but do support J2ME...

    ...Is there an app that allows me to convert my Flash Lite app to a J2ME so others can use it? The phone in question is the Sony Ericsson k800i.

    Many thanks for any information on this!

    I've heard of a few people talk about a thing called "Animoi"... Something Adobe/Macromedia brought out a while ago.

    Anyone here know what this actually is? Are there any other options available to me?

    True, Animoi was bought by Macromedia, but I have not heard anything about that product for years.

    I have its PDF brochures, and acording to them there was a tool named Animio Content Converter and it was able to convert SWF to J2ME applications.

    The last version before MM bought it was 3, which also added support for making SWF to S60 applications.

    I think MM bought and discontinued the product because it could harm Flash Lite market.

    Re: Is there a way of converting Flash Lite to J2ME?

    Hi,

    The easy answer is no, there are no such solutions. I had to look this up but it seems that the technology was bought by Macromedia, now Adobe, in 2004. It's actually pretty rare for a company to buy up another just to kill off competition, especially if they are helping sell their toolset. There must have been a perceived advantage in owning that technology at that time.

    From looking at the url below you can see that the tool required the user to restrict themselves to using templated components. Only those components could be accurately converted, though it seems that you could make your own.

    Flash developers are very capable of building their own components and in my experience developers want to do this. On mobile (certainly in 2004) devices were pretty slow by todays standards any use of any component set would have been a performance hog. You would have ended up with an application that lacks expression and likely an engaging UI with little/no animation.

    I should point out that I'm just guessing, I've never seen the tool in action.
