TinyLex is a J2ME (Java 2 Micro Edition) program for mobile devices which looks up dictionary entries. It is free software and released under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2.0.
- Java Development Kit 6 (JDK6)
- Netbeans (>6.0) (some libraries are needed to build the project)
- Mobile Device supporting J2ME MIDP 2.0
- The Netbeans Mobility Microemulator support plugin may be useful (on Netbeans 7.0, it's necessary to copy the .nbm files to another directory to install them).
Note: After Apertium's migration to GitHub, this tool is read-only on the SourceForge repository and does not exist on GitHub. If you are interested in migrating this tool to GitHub, see Migrating tools to GitHub.
$ svn co https://apertium.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/apertium/trunk/apertium-mobile/apertium-tinylex
$ cd apertium-mobile $ cd apertium-tinylex
It is recommended to open this project with Netbeans before (only the first time). This will create a 'private' directory inside 'nbproject' with some user properties (this is the easiest way to get them).
$ ant jar-all
