    Programming OviApps in Java. What do you think?

    Hi there,

    some of my fellow students and I thought that for some developers it might be interesting to write Ovi Apps in Java. Developers with less experience in developing webapps and developing with JavaScript might like that.
    So we thought of writing an OVI-extension for GWT(Google Web Toolkit).

    Now we are very interested in what the community is thinking about it.

    Would it be useful?
    How should the API be implemented (exactly the same way as in JavaScript for OVI or more "swing"-like)?
    Any other opinions, ideas, suggestions?

    We are grateful for any response.

    Thanks in advance.

    Note that Ovi Apps stuff in non-public, so you are not allowed to discuss about it in public forums. Also mixing Google and calling it Ovi API does not sound too sane for me. Please wait untill the public offering is out, and you can then see what it is and what can be done with it.

    Hi,
    Welcome to Forum Nokia Discussions and Forum Nokia Wiki.

    I think if you are writing and intend to use Google Toolkit (maps) with JavaScript you should consult the WebRunTime (WRT) category on the Wiki
    see Create your first WRT widget

    Many of the authors have written articles over 270 exist.
    The Google Toolkit has been used, see article WRT

    The article you probably want is Using built-in GPS and JavaScript to display your current position on Google Maps

    WRT does not need signing saving hundreds of dollars

    Java ME example is Google Maps API in Java ME

    Finally dont use the Ovi Api its *beta* and means your project may fail and no-one can help. This could mean your course project fails!, so dont use this.

    There is still plenty of room for research into mobile web space and for more articles on the Wiki

    Thanks

    Oh yes indiviuals cannot currently sell on Ovi only companies.

    Hi thanks for your replies.

    I think you did not really understand, what we exactly want to do.

    Note that Ovi Apps stuff in non-public, so you are not allowed to discuss about it in public forums.
    I did not tell anything not public about OVI or is it even forbidden to write the name OVI?

    Also mixing Google and calling it Ovi API does not sound too sane for me.
    Nobody called it Ovi API. But yes it would be a java API to write OVI Apps. Why should that be not sane? Do you know what the Google Web Toolkit does or is?

    I think if you are writing and intend to use Google Toolkit (maps) with JavaScript you should consult the WebRunTime (WRT) category on the Wiki
    see Create your first WRT widget
    No I did not write, that I want to use the google maps API in an app! We do not even want to write an app for Nokia phones. I wrote that we want to use Google Web Toolkit (again: I think you have no idea about Google Web Toolkit.) to wrap the Nokia OVI API. We want to write a framework, a OVI extension for the Google Web Toolkit.
    With such an extension you could write OVI-Apps with Java (not with JavaScript).
    And we would like to know what's your opinion about something like that.

    Oh yes indiviuals cannot currently sell on Ovi only companies.
    Unfortunately yes, but I think that this is a big mistake of Nokia. I think also that it is silly to make such a big secret out of OVI. If you want that OVI will be used and accepted by as many mobile developers as possible, then you have to spread it outa s far as possible and to as many people as possible.
