I don't understand the question. J2ME is a programming language runtime environment. Windows CE and EPOC are operating systems. Different things. You could have a J2ME implementation for CE or EPOC.

Hi
I too had the same questions in mind.
I want to get into mobile computing but which among these are really hot in the mobile industry ?
J2ME, Symbian OS C++, Embedded VC++ or Brew. I think thats what shailesh meant. Isn'y symbian now more popular and efficient than J2ME ?

eVC is dead. Microsoft is replacing it with the .Net Compact Framework.

Symbian and BREW are C++. They have always been more efficient (and probably more powerful, but it is changing) than J2ME.

However, in terms of developer productivity and popularity, Symbian and BREW are *nowhere near* J2ME.

I dont understand. How do you say eVC is dead when VC rules the industry ? Isn't eVC used for Win CE versions, Pocket PC, Smartphone etc ?

Oops, I guess I meant eVB is discontinued (no longer developed or supported) by Microsoft. eVC, for the time being, is still supported in VS 2005.

However, if you talk with people in Microsoft's mobile devision, they would tell you that eVC does not have a future. Most new Windows Mobile APIs will be .Net based rather than native C++ based. They will slowly phase out eVC. They want you to move to .Net CF which is mostly VB.Net and C#.
