Problems installing javame SDK 8.2 ...

Hi all,

I've been battling with this for 2 days, and I'm pretty sure it must be something stupid I am missing. I got the sdk installed, and netbeans 8.0.2 installed, to make sure I follow the documentation. But when I try to do an add plateform, netbeans can't find the any platforms. And the device-manager.log file he is pointing me to doesn't exist. So I figure I should be able to do an update-center request. So I start the update-center.exe application, only to get the following screen:

Anyone would have an idea what is happening?

    The SDK is installed on Windows 7, the target embedded platform is Raspberry PI, but I never got to that point.

    So I guess the question would be, once I have installed the java me 8.2 SDK (and not JDK, sorry...) I should be able to run "something" in there to validate that it is ok... At this time I have this:

    1. the update-center in the SDK doesn't work, and I have no logs to look into.
    2. Netbeans (8.0.2) can't connect to the SDK, as it doesn't find any platform in it.

    I got to do a connection from my Netbeans (8.1) into the raspberry pi. But to have a complete installation, I also need the SDK...

    I hope this rambling is clear enough..

    There are two things to do. One is to install the Java JDK on your machine. I did this for NetBeans.

    Java ME SDK Downloads

    and download and install the JDK ME on your Win7.

    I used the Raspberry Pi 2 Mod B with the last NOOPS 1.5.0. Do all the stuff to install RASPIAN. Then use the browser to download and extract the Oracle Java ME Embedded 8.2 for Raspberry Pi Model B (ARM11/Linux)

    Java ME Embedded - Downloads | Oracle Technology Network | Oracle

    Extract that and but the files in the several folders underneath root (f.e /bin ).

    run sudo to fire up the proxy.

    On your Win7 NetBeans you can try a ME Sample project  ( like GPIO ) by issuing new project ...

    Then use the device connection manager to set up your Raspberry connention.


    Regards, Harald.

    1. From the picture attached it seems you have uninstalled JDK you specified during MESDK installation. You have 2 options here to fix this situation if you have valid JDK installed

        - Reinstall MESDK, so you will able to define new JDK location during installation

        - Fix it manually by specifying path to JDK at <MESDK Installation>/bin/java file

    2. Update Center does not relate to platforms. It is utility to update MESDK itself or install additional packages.

    3. You can install Java ME Runtime and start it on Raspberry Pi easily from MESDK (since 8.2 version):

        1) Start Device Connections Manager (by double-clicking Device Manager icon in system tray or using "Manage Device Connections" menu item of Device Manager tray icon menu)

        2) Press "Setup New Device" toolbar button in Device Connections Manager

        3) Follow the wizard for Raspberry Pi.
