Hi, i am trying to create an application that run on PDA. the application contains a form which is filled in by field agents who carry the PDA with them, I am confused from where to start. I downloaded the JavaME SDK, but dont no whether to design a CDC project or CLDC project or a JAVA Fx project.

Can anybody give me suggestions where to start from.

Can you be more specific than "PDA" - what kind of device are you targeting? Does it even support CDC, CLDC or JavaFX Mobile? Not all handheld devices do.

I am confused between CDC,CLDC and Fx . How do i know what my PDA supports.
We are yet to buy a PDA for Field agents . The PDA that will be bought should just support a form display and as the field agent makes entry into the form it should update the local database of the PDA . And when this PDA is connected to the system it should update the actual database.

Without knowing which PDA you will be using we can't tell you either. When you make your choice I'd suggest you check out what the device supports first.

I have gone through the specifictions of the PDA and its just written

Programming Environment
• HTML, XML
• Psion Teklogix Mobile Devices SDK
• Hardware Development Kit (HDK)
• .NET and C++ programming using Microsoft Visual Studio® 2005
• Java programming supporting JDK 1.2.2 or higher
• Standard Protocol APIs Windows sockets (CE.net)

The above is for WORKABOUT PRO 3 PDA.

Can anybody suggest me how do i determine whether to use CLDC or CDC or Java Fx.

I'm sure the manufacturer has some kind of SDK available, the documentation of which should cover these details.

I am using Neo - the rugged mobile handheld computer and the documentation specifies

• HTML, XML
• Mobile Devices SDK
• HTML, XML
• JavaTM
• Visual Studio® 2008
• Standard protocol APIs – Windows® sockets


This means the device supports JAVA ME SDK . now how do i determine whether to use CDC,CLDC or Java Fx.

Can anybody suggest me

Have you found and examined the contents of the SDK yet?
