J2ME for OS X?

I downloaded the J2ME Wireless Toolkit from Sun, onto my G4 PowerBook...

I created a J2ME_HOME system environmental variable in my .bash_profile configuration file. I also added the J2ME_HOME/bin to my PATH.

When I tried typing in "ktoolbar", I got this response on the command line:



Here are my settings:



Do I need to add something to my CLASSPATH that belongs in the J2ME_HOME/lib directory?

Is J2ME Wireless Toolkit compliant with Mac OS X? Do I need to download a version that is compliant from somewhere other than Sun?

What is a ktools.properties file and what do I need to put inside it?

Also, I am trying to do this both from the command line and also seek a J2ME plug-in for Eclipse (that would work on OS X), does anyone have any suggestions?

With thanks!

I found this URL (when I typed "OS X J2ME" on Google):

http://mpowers.net/midp-osx/

After taking a look at this website, does it imply that this is the only way to run MIDP applications on OS X and also that MIDP 1.0 is the only version that OS X supports?

Last time I tried to do some J2ME on OSX, that MIDP 1.0 development kit was indeed the only way that I could get anything to work. That was about 6 months ago though, so perhaps things have changed.

That really bites!

Especially when all the new books are on MIDP 2.0....

Has anyone heard Apple acknowledging this problem and doing something to alleviate it?

With thanks!
