ComputerWorld reports on a study by Evans Data Corp. saying that 30% of 521
developers surveyed plan to use Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Java 2 Micro Edition for mobile development projects, followed by Palm and Windows CE. "We want to run Java, as opposed to something proprietary like [Visual Basic],"
said Curtis Chambers, senior manager of architecture at Home Depot. "We're
rolling out Linux-based clients, and you can't just port VB over to Linux."
