Source code

Phrasier is developed under Java 6. MobilePhrasier is developed under Java Micro Edition (J2ME: CLDC 1.1, MIDP 2.0, JSR-75). I have not published the source code, so the programs are thus not technically speaking open source. However, I can send the source code to anyone interested upon request.


The Chinese-English dictionary (CEDict) was provided by MDBG.

Some ideas during the development, and the initial vocabulary file format, were in part taken from Chinese Practice which I first started using. The file browser class of MobilePhrasier was adapted from one at Java Tips. The development was done using the Eclipse IDE.
