I've been developing J2ME apps for nearly a year now and we are
looking to port to the Palm OS.
Can someone point me in the right direction to get started either with
the raw runtimes provide by IBM or with wssd?
Read on for more background as to where I am at.
From my research, it looks as thought J9 from IBM and the Sun
reference implementation are the only available options. For several
reasons (speed, odd implementation, awt like extensions) I'd like to
use J9, but I'm having difficulties unraveling how exactly to use the
tools I've gathered.
I have downloaded, installed, etc the eval version of wssd, but it
seems not to find the runtime executables. Which is ok by me because
I'd actually rather stay with my current dev environment and just
leverage the J9 jvm.
Developing for NexTel, I would compile and preverify using ant, and preverify executable that come from Sun's Wireless
Toolkit. I'd jar up the results and create a jad file, load to the
phone - voila! a MIDlet on my phone.
Using J9, I'm assuming, I would compile against the .zip files that
are under D:\IBM\wsdd\wsdd4.0\ive\runtimes\palmos\68k\ive\lib\jclMidp
then preverify, and jar as before.
I tried this approach and loaded both the
onto my palm emulator.
Creating a prc from the jar/jad pair, but I got the following error
when trying to launch from the palm emulator:
Applications (3.5) called SysFatalAlert with message:
"LauncherMain.c, Line 9395, owner app not found"

Any pointers would be appreciated.
