Hi all ranchers,
I just got a PDA from Sharp.
The PDA's programming guide suggests that both PersonalJava and J2ME Personal Profile are appropriate development tools.
Since I found the "End Of Life Preannouncement" information on
http://java.sun.com/products/personaljava/
I wonder whether I should ever probe into PersonalJava or just skip it.
Thanks for your valuable opinion.
Regards,

The "next version" of PersonalJava is the J2ME Personal Profile. The migration from PJ to PPro is smilar to the processe from JDK 1.1 to JDK 1.2. Most of the stuff in PJ (e.g. AWT and other core classes) are available in PPro.

Thanks, Michael.
Now I think that J2ME Personal Profile is the better choice.

For Personal Profile implementations, you could check out IBM's beta that comes with WebSphere Device Developer 5.5 (free download from http://www-3.ibm.com/software/wireless/wsdd/).
