I'm new to j2me,so sorry for the questions

I have a Java 5 swing application that I would want to use on a Windows Mobile 6.1 device.
I have had the idea of integrate it in an applet.
I have read that the crme vm has a the swing package support,but it works only on window CE.Not good for me.
I have installed jbed jvm and I have thinked two possible scenario.
So the questions are these:

1) Are awt fully supported and can run by an applet in j2me?
2) Do I need some extra applet viewer to run applet with awt?
3) Do I need to rewrite all in a stand alone midlet with LCDUI? are there "event" item?
4) can I use midlet with awt?

thanks in advance

J2ME does not support AWT. That's only available in the full Java.

AWT can be used in applets or stand-alone Applications. However, J2ME itself runs midlets.

So in summary, you cannot run unmodified AWT code on a J2ME sysem. You'd have to convert the GUI to use lcdui or one of the third-party extensions such as polish.
