Hi All,
I know there isn't a short answer for this but
i appreciate if you guide me few directions

a ) we need to quickly convert our web application
weblogic+struts+jsp to be accessed by a PDA, smart phone

b) is there any simulators (free downloads) i can try to access the
jsp ( is it possible to access it as a regular webpage in the simulator?)

c) we don't mind about the look and feel, just for testing purpose , just need to view our website in the simulator.

is this possible?? or do i need to convert all our jsp's to render a
WML to be displayed in PDA/smart phone

greatly appreciate any guidelines on the above.

Thanks a lot,

If you are going to implemet this using PDA & smart phones, the work is less I guess, cause these types have a web browser which can be used to brows your existing web application, or else you can create a J2ME application where it connects to the webserver via a web service, servlet/jsp and get the information. You can try our nokia emulator for J2ME to test these things or else go for Palm or Blackberry emulator.

Hope this is sufficient enough, regards.
