I am a experienced (years) Java programmer. Lately I have been developing for the PPC platform using C#.NET CF and SQL Server CE. I would like to port my applications to J2ME Personal Profile. Is there any single source I can go to to learn about developing applications for PocketPC 2003 using J2ME? What about JDBC and SQL Server CE?

Hi There

I think what you want is not possible, as PPC does not implement CLDC/MIDP specs, but I know there are a few commercial KVM's available for PPC. If you search this this site you will likely find there names.
