I am in the first starges of trying to write an application that will eventually be runnable on the Blackberry and other mobile devices running MIDP 2.0. So, I am currently running my code through Sun's wireless toolkit simulator as well as the Blackberry simulator that came with the JDE.
Since I'm striving for portability, I'm trying to stick with the MIDP APIs. The problem is when try to change the font - change the size, style, etc. - the WTK simulator recognizes the changes but the Blackberry simulator does not. My question is, does the Blackberry respond at all to UI changes made with the MIDP APIs? If so then should I just stick with the Blackberry APIs and resort to having to write two different applications if I desire portability?
