Anyone interested in knowing how to get Java running on an iPaq ?
I'm asking the question just because I don't want to post anything if nobody is interested in the topic...

Yes, I am very interested on doing that. Specialy to know how to program the GUI using Java. Which libraries can I use?

there are not very many constraints, you can use exactly the same java libraries as of J2SE 1.3.1 FCS released by Blackdown...
That means Swing, AWT, Security, everything...
I'll post more details on Java installation on iPaq later tomorrow I think...

Check out Jeode. They have a version of PersonalJava for the iPaq.

A friend of mine stuggled for ages to run certain Java applets on his iPaq till I told him about Jeode.
He is smiling all the way to the bank. He works for a company that provides hardware for industrial automation. They are using his iPaq , a modile tel and JeodeRTE to read the status of pumpstations in a demo. Their clients are sold when they see it. Heck they can check the status of any device while standing in a traffic jam
Still waiting for my commision though

Right, Jeode is nice, but not free! Moreover, some people may need more than what PJ offers, it was my case. PJ provides support up to JDK 1.1.7 and I needed the latest security features of 1.3. I needed Swing too, which is not part of PJ. I was amazed to see that Blackdown ported the J2RE 1.3.1 in its entirety to StrongARM processors. And it works really fine. But, if you don't need all those latest packages you can get along quite well with PJ. It's a matter of choice...

IBM's J9 (as used by VAME) is meant to run on iPaq. have not used on that platform but works really well elsewhere (Linux, Windows], perhaps worth checking out: www.embedded.oti.com .
cheers, dan.

Hi Valentin,
I know I'm a little late on this thread.
Would you mind to post the information of running java on iPAQ again.
Thanks.

i would be interested to know how to be able to install a jdk for micro editions on a PC. i don;t have a iPaq.
so i wanted to know if one can install a micro-edtion right on one's PC and make applications and test it right on the PC itself first. because once i know this or rather learnt the basics etc then i could move on to actual micro devices.
i would be interested to know about devices which run java micro virtual machines.
thanks

Hi,
For those interested, I think you can try
PersonalJavaTM Runtime Environment for Windows CE
http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/earlyAccess/personaljava/
I'm currently still committed to my developer assignment.
Maybe I'll try again a month later and keep it update here.
Cheers.

Han Ming
