Hi,
Do u guys think that J2ME is matured enough to give birth to a professional Palm App product.Or can u point out some products that overcomes the following limitations.
These are the problem i am facing right now with J2ME:
1.I donot want to show the end user of my Palm app, the Duke symbol and the comment loading class and all.....when he clicks on my application.
2.My application should provide an extensive htttp communication with a remote server,to access data.(with CLDC.More feature rich MIDP is not yet available in Palm).Do u think with CLDC i can accomplish a stable and error free communication ?
3.User should be able to enter data through Palm Keyboard ('abc' and '123' option of palm).He may not be good in drawing the charatcers with graffiti.
These are the limitations i met so far...just by making a sample application.
Ur suggestions and corrections are most welcome.
Thanks
Joe

Sun has announced a MIDP implementation for the palm. I'd wait until that is out. Hopefully there will also be a PDAP announcement by JavaOne (Disclaimer:I can't promise or even hint at anything officially; but it would be a logical time for such an announcement).

Right now the Palm isn't a viable target until the MIDP for the Palm is out. There are licensing problems with the CLDC reference implementation as well as the fact that the Palm-specific classes that come with it are unsupported and incomplete. Target the MIDP in the short term and look to moving to the PDAP whenever it becomes available.
