I�m thinking of creating a version for PDAs (using Java ME) of a Java Desktop application that I have. This java desktop application has the following features: - uses swing - uses a C++ DLL, through JNI calls - uses microsoft sql server as the DBMS
I�d like to know if I can make a light version of this desktop app for a handheld device, such as a PDA. I have two questions: which device is a good choice for my purpose and which OS is the best suited (considering I�ll have to use C++ with JNI).

To be honest, I don't know that it matters, in the sense of one being easier or harder. But I would also need to put in a caveat that I've only really developed mobile code for Windows Mobile if we're talking PDA's, since that's what I have at my disposal. I would suspect that there's more penetration in the marketplace at this point by Windows-powered devices, and that might make more sense to target, but I have no facts to back that feeling up.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
