Hi Attila

Nice! I've given a subedit for wiki style and (minor) English - please check that it still says what you want. In summary (and for your education)

  • Images are now all inline and have captions. You can use [[File:YourFilename.ext|frame|none|yourcaption]] if you're happy with the default image size or [[File:YourFilename.ext|thumb|none|400px|yourcaption]] if you need a smaller size (where 400px is the width in this case).
  • Use bold style for button presses and filenames, Icode for inline code (monotype), italic for tool names
  • Template:Note, Tip, Warning are options for "asides" and highlighting important stuff
  • I think a picture tells a thousand words, so I moved the image of the Emulator running in Wine to the Introduction
  • As we have a "series" of articles here I've added a SeeAlso with all the articles to all the articles
  • If you're linking to another wiki article, don't use the external format (URL). Use internal format.

In terms of room for improvement the only thing that wasn't clear to me was in the introduction:

"Java ME apps can be developed in NetBeans or Eclipse and tested using the Oracle/Sun Java ME device emulators available in the Jave ME SDK. The emulator can also be integrated with your NetBeans or Eclipse installation.

While the Nokia Asha SDK is not available as native Linux applications, we can use the toolchain and emulator via Wine from IDEs like Netbeans or Eclipse running natively on Linux (thus there is no speed overhead in the IDE itself). This is only possible on 32-bit i386 Linux environments."

I think this is confusing because of the line "The emulator can also be integrated with your NetBeans or Eclipse installation." which could be removed. So the story is "you can developer Java ME using the normal emulators in the Java ME SDK, but you can't use the Nokia Emulator "by default - however here we have instructions on how you can do it using either Netbeans or Eclipse running natively on Linux".

Anyway, re-read that bit and see what you think.

Great job

Achipa - Reformulated

Yes, it might be a bit convoluted. Upon re-reading it I think it's better if I leave out the mention of generic Oracle Linux Java ME tooling - after all, the article is about Asha apps, and there is no real benefit in using the (by now outdated and unsupported) Linux version of the JWT.

Hamishwillee - Yes, much better

Thanks very much. Will delete my comments next time I come round.

Swethamb - Good Article

Article helped me a lot. I could able to run ASHA sdk on MAC and able to java apps. Although there were issues like brew fails to get all packages, if one knows how to install packages installation can be managed.

Thanks to the author.

Mavegaf - Works emulator, but always get an error with eclipse

Always when i close Eclipse IDE (run with wine), i get the error "Could not save master table to file c:\Nokia\NokiaDevEnv\workspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources\.safetable\org.eclipse.core.resources Invalid parameter" It's not a permission problem (i've check this)
