it’s like the matrix reloaded.. something went wrong.. when the antenna guys added the new v2 preprocessor.. trying to move closer to j2me polish? integrating the same bad decisions.. amazing how things go sometimes..
i’ve been working with an older antenna version for quite some time now. i don’t see a reason to upgrade. or let me put it another way: i see the need to replace antenna with something else. or new. or maybe add a v3 preprocessor to it.. :)
i’m not saying antenna or j2me polish are bad tools. looks like they are good if you want tools that integrate tightly with your IDE. but i want something else. clean preprocessing directives. clean API. made for command line and/or ant use.
in my rage :) i totally forgot to mention a few things. for example this: in my world i’d like a preprocessor to understand
without me having to define anything. simple things like that.. i also simply don’t like defines that look like
#ifdef something:defined or #if something:defined
instead i would argue that
#ifdef something or #if something
should suffice. and i would also argue that it is a good practice to keep names of defines all uppercase. and reserve lowercase to other things. like for example built-in values or variables..
as you can see this is a lot about me not liking something. nothing else.. i guess..
well, my two cents only..
