Is MIDP for Palm ready for "prime-time", or do you still recommend something like IBM J9 VM to allow access to Palm guts.
Thanks.

Hi Rob,
Are you speaking from a point of view of stability, or for access to the Palm API's?
I am sure you are aware that MIDP of Palm OS does not support any native access to the Palm.

My concern was with performance with MIDP for Palm. Stability is a good question also since you brought it up.
Would appreciate your thoughts on both the performance and stability issues.
Thanks.

I have not found any concerns regarding stability.
Regarding performance, unfortunately, I have not had an opportunity to compare various implementations
Anyone?
