Is there *really* no JVM avaiable for Pocket PC 2003+ ?? I've been googling around and the best I can find is "Pocket PC is not supported" - say it ain't so!

Well, to be honest, I wouldn't want to develop a J2ME application on a Pocket PC, when it is so quick and easy to make a prettier and more powerful application using, sorry to say, VB.net or C#.

I wrote a J2ME app and VB.net App, both the same, and it took me 1/10th the time to create a VB.net version, which also got to use an Access database and looked prettier.

Anything that you might have on a server should be some form of Web Service, even if it is just a Servlet. But both J2ME and .net versions should easily be able to call it and get the results back.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Links I found.

This thread.

and here

er here.

It seems prodcuts called J9, Joede, and Creme, might be solutions, if you must run J2ME.

Good Luck

Thanks for the links.

Agreed, .NET is great for PocketPC...I've actually written a couple of C# apps for PocketPC and I now maintain a warehouse scanner application written in C# at my current job.

I was interested in comparing the two, if possible, to see what I could see. The only thing I own is a Compaq IPaq to test it on. Being such a popular platform, I was suprised I didn't pull up a half-dozen JVMs for PocketPC!?

I'll check out the links, thanks again!
