Sun/Laszo announced this week that they will work jointly on a new project called “Orbit”:
“Orbit” is an exciting collaborative effort between Sun Microsystems and Laszlo Systems enabling OpenLaszlo applications to run on devices supporting the Javaâ„¢ Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME) application platform. This project will be delivered as part of the OpenLaszlo “Legals” multi-runtime effort, with first demos available before the end of 2006.
The promise seems a little bit big, so I excpect that exported application will have some limitation, but it is a nice idea to follow. Could this effort help to solve the “Widget fragmentation” issue?
