Hi All,

I have a standalone java desktop based application developed in java applet. I want to run it in to Android, it seems android is not supporting java applet, what to do further?
1- Is there any way to run applet on android?
2- Any third part api or tools available?
3- What is the best way to migrate my Desktop app to android.
4- Keep in mind - I want to migrate the same app into iPhone as well as in WP. Any better suggestion???

#1: Probably not. Android does not have JVM, so Java class files can't be executed.

#3: The Android GUI toolkit and app architecture are quite different from AWT or Swing; you will to have to rewrite substantial portions of your app.

#4: Note that iOS does not support Java; you will have to rewrite the app using Objective-C. I don't know what you mean by "WP".
