Security was remarkably tight at the recent Night of Java event held in Yokohama, Japan. Dedicated to new software and budding developers of applications for Java enabled mobile devices, details regarding the event were kept strictly under wraps until the evening of the show. Invited guests were transported aboard a ship called Merlene Shuttle in small groups and treated to private demonstrations. Once inside, most guests quickly realized the need for the security and the decision to hold the event on a mobile venue.

More aptly, the highlight of the evening was a GameBoy software emulator. Expected to run on most Java enabled phones, the application allows users to load game images (ROMs) of software for Nintendo's classic monochrome handheld. The entire emulation program takes up less than 20KB according to event organizers. The demo version of the emulator on display at the show was admittedly slow, however, programmers insist the finished version will run at normal speed. When complete, the emulator is expected to support more than 1,100 GameBoy games. Thus far, Nintendo representatives have refused to comment on the emulator.
