Steep learning curve.

I would like to develop a Java CDC application using either J9 or CreMe on a Symbol MC9000 scanner (Windows CE 4.2 NET). I would prefer to use my existing Eclipse 3.1.2 IDE but I have had no success figuring out how to setup the IDE for this. Currently I have told eclipse that can use JDK 1.5.0_06 and also a JDK 1.3.1_01 (part of Oracle 9i install). I have purchased J9 from Handango (Websphere Everyplace Micro Enviroment Personal Profile 1.0 for Windows Mobile 2003 2nd Ed) as I could not find a specific CE version.

So much of the documentation which I have found with Google etc is related to CDLC I find it difficult to know were to start.

It's a little frustrating as I want to get on with the app development rather than the installation of the development enviroment.

If anyone is in the same situation and can advise I would be grateful.

I have done quite a bit of coding on the J2SE part of my application so I'm not a total novice with Java - just J2ME and the JVM's bit.

Thanks in advance

Try the Eclise J2ME plugin EcliseME :
Also worth checking is Antenna, for specific Ant integration in J2ME application deployment:

And of course and before all you need to install Sun's Wireless toolkit.
