Java on the iPhone?
Is the porting of Java to the Apple iPhone Getting Nearer?

Sun's Terrence Barr, technical evangelist for the Java mobile and embedded community, is saying that he believes Apple's plans to release an SDK for iPhone in early 2008 may result in the open-source phoneME version of Java ME winding up on iPhone.

Speaking on the eve of the one-year anniversary of Java's open-sourcing by Sun, Barr has been saying he expects it to happen "as a community effort," in the same way that the phoneME community has already ported Java ME over to the Nokia M800 device.

Back in September, at the end of his keynote address on Day Three of AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 West at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California,  Robert Brewin - Sun's CTO and VP of Software - when asked what he thought of the fact that Java doesn't run on the Apple iPhone, replied that he thought it was "a mistake" on Apple's part and that it would make more sense if Java were able to run on iPhones right from the get-go.|

Brewin went on to assert that the reason for Apple's disinclination to embrace Java was that "Fundamentally, they don't like open systems," before touting JavaFX as a feasible competitor to Silverlight or AJAX as a multimedia display technology.

JavaFX will only be able to power rich applications on the iPhone with Apple's consent though. It made an interesting side-discussion after Brewin's well-received keynote address, and Jeremy Geelan, Conference Chair of AJAXWorld 2008 East in New York (March 18-20, 2008), predicted that there would be at least one JavaFX session as part of next year's iPhone track at AJAXWorld.
