Running MIDlets on Palm V emulator

I downloaded the emulator and installed midp-java runtime environment to it (i can see the Java HQ icon on it). I installed the MIDlet I developed. When I attempt to run it, it starts and allows me to select the midlet I want to run. Upon selection, I receive the following error "Unable to load class javax.microedition.lcdui.CustomItem. I am not sure why is this happening since CustomItem is a part of MIDP implementation. When I ran Java HQ, it says that its version is 1.0. Does this mean that I installed midp 1.0? If that is so, I guess I need to install midp for palm os 2.0.

Thanks for your help.

CustomItem is a MIDP 2.0 API. You need to install a MIDP 2.0 runtime for Palm.

I agree. Here's the link:
