Hi All,

I need to quickly convert our web application "tomcat server7.0+struts+jsp to be accessed by a CLDC oracle java platform micredition SDK 3.0.5"
I have devloped the application using netbeans ide7.1

Is there any simulators (free downloads) i can try to access the jsp ( is it possible to access it as a regular webpage in the simulator?)

Is this possible?? or do i need to convert all our jsp's to render a WML to be displayed in defaultcldcphone1

Greatly appreciate any guidelines on the above.

Thanks a lot,
Vinod

Should the entire application run on the mobile device? Or would it be sufficient for teh mobile app to access certain web app functionalities via a REST API?

Either way, there is probably no way to do it quickly, even if you're familiar with CLDC (which i can't tell from your post).

I need to know how do I start with this. Is there any way through which i could directly convert to mobile application or do I need to start it from starch as then I would need to update my code as per mobile device requirements.

Thanks,
Vinod

Running your application on "m.domainname" indicates that you need to create a mobile web site, not a mobile app - which of these is it?

No, there's no way to convert a standard web app to a mobile web app (or a mobile app) directly. A significant amount of development will be involved either way.

Hi Ulf,

Thanks for the help. Yes i need to convert it as a mobile site. I think i need to start it freshly again as a mobile site.

Thanks a lot,
Vinod
