Hi, all.
The J2ME CDC is for x86-compatible hardware, according to the build instruction. Does it use native code? and How difficult to port it to run on PPC? thanks!

Yes, the both the CDC and the CLDC use native code. They have to, in order to interface with the operating system. Now, that code in general has been written to be portable, so in theory it shouldn't be hard to port them to other platforms. But I haven't done it myself, so I can only theorize. Do you know about the CDC mailing list? You can join it at:
