Hi,
I'm having great problems because I've always used Zucotto Whiteboard emulator and now I'd like to change and start using Sun toolkit: my biggest trouble is with Canvas; I can't make it appear correctly (for example in an "animation Midlet" I want to show 10 images with a delay of 500 mill. but finally I can see just the last image and not all the sequence!).
About this I wanted to ask if someone of you had compatibility problems. If I write a piece of code I have to get the same result, haven't I ??
thanks,
bye
Alfredo

Well, yes, in theory the same code should run the same everywhere, but there are always little grey areas that can trip you up. Maybe you're not doing things in the correct, spec-approved way. Hard to say without seeing any code. And emulators have bugs in them, there's no doubt about that. And sometimes those bugs are that they allow things that other emulators (and the spec) don't.
