To create a small application on a Falcon 4420 handheld device, what needs to be put on the device other than the Java ME application? The device has Windows CE 5.0 and Compact Framework 2.0. CDC needs to be on the device? I read that this device will need a Java SDK download for the development platform too. I need to connect to Oracle DB at each local plant site - database is on a HP UNIX server. So, what needs to be on the device to connect to Oracle via the application. Will JDBC be used?
The Java ME needs to be on the development platform PC/laptop, correct?
Well, Compact Framework 2.0 is .Net, so that's kind of irrelevant at this moment.
You're going to need Java ME CDC or CLDC, depending on what is available for your device. (I can't find any information easily on a Google search on the matter, just fyi.) I don't know what environment is available, though you might see if you can download IBM's j9 engine for it, if that would work.
Java ME is typically set up on the device, not the development platform. You'll need the Wireless Toolkit (WTK) for development and packing purposes, but you can use your usual IDE for most of the development.
Hope this gives you a step in the right direction - if I find anything else, I'll post back with more info.
