Flash Lite talks with J2ME: There were articles earlier today about Sony’s Project Capuchin, but now Sony has info on their website. It seems like Sony phones will have an API so that a local Java engine can communicate with the local Flash Lite engine. They cite three use cases: a Java application triggering a Flash application; using a SWF presentation layer atop a Java processing/services layer; and intermixing SWF components within a Java application. Inter-engine communication has taken place in web browsers for awhile, but implementation differences and latency limited uses… may be different in this mobile implementation. I asked within Adobe this morning for context, and heard there will be more info after a conference next week. Sony’s got some source info up now, though, to go beyond the morning’s news articles.
