How has it helped my organization?

CodenameOne has opened opportunities for rapid prototyping and affordable product development.

What do you think of Codename One?

Valuable Features: Uses standard Java, with low rewrite requirement for existing applications. • Improvements to My Organization: I ported a couple of large-ish real world Java applications, and maintained a common code base. Future development continues, fully cross platform, on standard desktop Java, Android and iOS. • Room for Improvement: Core Java features are not fully supported (introspection, serialization) and many standard functionalities (windows, events) are implemented in an idiosyncratic way, not standard Java.

What is Codename One?

Codename One is a way of creating native mobile applications for Android, iOS, BlackBerry and Windows Phone, using the same Java source code. Android native apps use Java, but iOS, BlackBerry and Windows Phone do not. Codename One makes translations of your Java code into the native code for each of these platforms, sometimes resulting in faster apps than the native versions. Codename One is open source for both commercial and non-commercial usage.
