Hey everyone,

I'm trying to use the PDA camera in my java application.

I'm writing for a PDA which supports CDC personal profile 1.1, but I couldn't manage to find any API I can use for this purpose except the Mobile Media API (JSR 135 , 234 ). But these seem to be only work with MIDP 2.0, and not with Personal Profile.

Is there any other way to use these APIs ?

This is really the wrong place to be asking (since this forum is for questions regarding the certification exam, which concentrates on CLDC anyway) - you should probably be asking over in the J2ME forum.

With regards to the specific question, though, you might look into seeing how best you can handle it. A PDA could run it through MIDP given the right emulator - I know that j9's CLDC runs quite well on my iPAQ (though in a limited fashion as it doesn't support all my PDA's functions). You might, though, be better helped by finding a CDC implementation that will work on your phone and incorporates media-capture features.
