You were told you posted in the wrong place so you just try and try again?

Maybe you should post in the right place...

Out of curiosity, why would you want to host a servlet on a PDA?

I have one answer to that.
A PDA can host a database. DB2 everyplace is an example. There may be a small application written in the PDA wherein the users can enter some sort of data and it will be updated(syncronization) to a centralized server. That application in PDA can be written in a servlet.

Look at this URL

You will get info about DB2 everyplace, Websphere everyplace, Syncronization server, Access server etc.

Jeroen, a little harsh than needed.

Yes, you are right this is the same question that i moved to Other Java Servers. So I am going to close this duplicate post.

But I will also leave Alfredo with this. Why do you need to run a Servlet on a PDA, since no other PDAs can call the App Server on the single PDA. The Architecture is all wrong and there are better solutions to what you want to do.

What you can do is post in the Java In General (Intermediate) forum about what it is you are actually trying to accomplish. Not that you want to host a Servlet on a PDA, but what is the goal of the application. I am sure we can help you find a good design and architecture that would accomplish your goals better.

Good Luck
