Hi
I need to develop a java app for Windows CE 3.0
I heard that I should not use PersonalJava because it will be n longer supporyted by sun. Is that correct?
Would the best option be CDC/Personal Profile? Is there any implementation for WinCE?
thanks in advance

Then the first thing you should do is to buy Java Development on PDAs, by Daryl Wilding-McBride (Amazon got it). This book tells you how to program with Personal Java; and it tells you (briefly) the diference between Personal Java and Personal Profile.

You're right that PP is the future, but right now most JVMs are PJ implementations. And, the projects you would do at the beginning would be compatible with PP and PJ anyway. Keep in mind that both are based on J2SE (1.1.8 and 1.3)

For my MSc Project, I'm using Kawa with JDK 1.1.8 and JavaCheck. I'm testing on the Emulator (that's WinCE) running a CrEme JVM.

IBM WebSphere Micro Environment has a CDC/PPro implementation for PocketPC. You can get a license for $5 from handango or get a development verssion for free with the WebSphere Studio Device Developer IDE.
