Hi, I'm very new to java development on mobile devices and am really unclear about the following: If I build an application in java (using the Java Personal Profile), do I need to get a license for the runtime for every device that uses it? Are there any community implementations of the Java Personal Profile JVM? Basically, what am I getting myself into if I build something for Pocket PC 2003? Am I going to have to work the JVM into my license fee? I have to say, mobile development with Java is really really unclear. Any help is very much appreciated. Cheers, Steve
