Looks interesting...  Smiley

You are using somekind of font table hardcoded with a vector-like codes, am I wrong?

Do yo plan to release it opensource? Wink

I dont understand what you mean by that  :-/
I have not yet decided if I am going to release the font reader(the class that prints the fonts) under GPL, but the compiler I will probably not for some time.

I meant if the Font class is generating the fonts itself, that's the fonts are embedded within it in arrays. You points that the fonts are external..

If you release the font renderer class the lgpl license would allow more projects to use it, including mine Wink than gpl. I think gpl for j2me is not really usefull.

The fonts are compiled into binary files and the J2ME class reads that info and creates arrays, yes. Thus you can include many different fonts, sizes etc into the same midlet and use the same font class. Well, I intend it to be free for educational use and offer commercial licenses. A free version should be up by tonight.

Good job!

I like it! You may release the font reader under LGPL? Your font compiler I agree with you to make it comercial.

Keep on good coding Wink

Cheers!
