JSPWiki on a cell phone

Click for bigger image.
I got encouraged by someone's tweet and decided to try this on my N900. And turns out it wasn't that difficult even, just did the following things:

  • Download Sun's preview of Java 6 on ARM and transfer to N900
  • On N900 mkdir /opt/java, untar the downloaded JRE there
  • Copied existing Tomcat installation with JSPWiki 2.8 to /opt/tomcat/ (could've also done an installation from scratch, should've worked)
  • Used QEmacs to tweak a couple of config files (server.xml needed the default Tomcat control port changed away from 8009, and jspwiki.properties needed to point at the right directory)
  • set up JAVA_HOME to point at the /opt/java/ejrexxx dir.
  • run /opt/tomcat/apache-tomcat-5.5.16/bin/startup.sh
  • point browser at http://localhost:8080/JSPWiki/

And voila - we have a full Java JSP webapp (the same one that is currently serving you these pages) running on a cell phone. Since my setup stores all wikipages as flat text files, I can use it as a local text editor with hypertext editing capabilities. Or comes else comes to mind.

Nice...

(Tried shooting video too, but it was too blurry on my backup camera.)

Cool! Well, it's a Linux box, so it shouldn't be that amazing, but it's still cool.

Now get your phone on some dynamic DNS server and we can all point our browsers there!

Cool. Will we get to see a photo of your phone running JSPWiki?
