WapcamLet and Blackberry

Exif_JPEG_PICTURE Jacques, a WapcamLet user, has come to me asking if WapcamLet would work on RIM Blackberry's devices.
Though I first thought it wouldn't work, since Blackberrys accept .cod Java packages rather .jar, I tried it and it finally proved to work.

Don't try to download WapcamLet.jar with the RIM's desktop manager, it won't work. To install WapcamLet on a Blackberry device, simply browse to http://wapcam.mobi with your web browser, go the download page, and click on WapcamLet.jar. Say 'yes' everytime you're asked and that's it.
However, you will have to take care because the rendering is slightly different from the expected standard J2ME behaviour. I noticed that the egg-timer keeps on displaying as if there was intense calculation. There is actually not so we can liv with it. On the Blackberry Pearl I tested, the softkeys don't appear, so you will have to push the options button in order to start the retrieving of images (as in the screenshot).

Enjoy WapcamLet on your Blackberry !

Although written in Java, they are not supposed to be played on a regular computer because the libraries they rely on are not the same (to make it very very simple).
However, different projects aim to recreate the underlying libraries so that a midlet can be played or tested with you computer.

This is the ideal occasion to demonstrate WapcamLet as an applet in your browser for testing two different such libs.

For those mobile phones that don't support displaying JPEG in midlets....

The problem is that WapcamLet midlet is not able to display JPEG snapshots delivered by WapcamServer or any other IP cam. This is annoying as JPEG is the most widespread format and offers the best compression/quality rate.
