What's New in NetBeans Mobility Pack 4.1
The release of NetBeans Mobility Pack version 4.1 brings with it a number of important new
features and enhancements. This article documents the key improvements mobility developers
can look forward to when they upgrade.

Exploring the NetBeans Visual Mobile Designer
Developers new to Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) programming are often surprised
to discover how much hand-coding they are required to do. Tools like the J2ME Wireless Toolkit
available both as a standalone tool or integrated into the NetBeans platform via the NetBeans
Mobility Pack make building and packaging MIDP applications simple, but they don't provide
much help with application logic or user interface creation. That's why the Visual Mobile
Designer, a new feature of NetBeans 4.1, is so exciting ? it greatly simplifies the coding of
MIDP applications, especially their user interfaces.

ZenSoft Studio Streamlines Mobile Game Development with NetBeans Mobility Pack and J2ME
"When we were evaluating development platforms for mobile devices, we quickly determined that
the combination of NetBeans Mobility Pack and J2ME was hands down the best solution. These
technologies have the most sophisticated and cost-effective tools for mobile platform
development. Plus, a wide range of devices are Java-technology enabled, so using Java language
tools for mobile development makes perfect sense."

J2EE features, aggregation levels, hot spot types, bookmarks, allocation time features, JVMTI
support, on-demand profiling.
