Codename One

Codename One is a mobile application framework for writing native applications in Java. By using Codename One, developers can write code once and deploy it across various mobile devices without having to rewrite the app for each platform. The framework includes an extensive set of features such as UI components, 2D graphics, and access to device hardware capabilities through its API. With Codename One’s cloud build system, apps are compiled with native speed on the company's servers or local machines so that they run as if they were written in Objective-C or Java/Kotlin natively on each platform. This cross-platform capability has made Codename One popular among developers who want to save time and resources by avoiding multiple codebases while reaching both Android and iOS users simultaneously.
