Hi all,
I am now doing a project about building a discussion forum with Bluetooth
To be clear, The discussion forum will be very much like the one we are using in Web., but i want it to be a independent program(without using IE)
I am using iPAQ 3970 installed familiar linux,
I wonder is it possible to install J2SE/ J2ME on it.
as it is very limited in memeory, total 32MB, and famailiar linux dones't support external memory for 3970.
1. Will it be too slow to using BlackDown one?
2. Can I build such program by J2ME? as i will later transfer it to Nokia 6600
also, I tried install the J2ME for Zaurus and tried running some program...
it seems doesn't work well.
So i wanna ask "
3. Is my iPAQ 3970 the same as the Zaurus after using the J2ME for Zaurus"?
4. any sample code about networking (forum) i can test?? or How i can sure my J2ME is working?
5. Stupid question >> How should i get started? which program should i use to write the code and GUI?
thx
Very thx

First of all, welcome to the JavaRanch!
You need to change your display name, though, because it violates the obviously-fake rule of our naming policy.
Thanks.

Hi,
I can only address your questions about Blackdown, as I was able to install it and run on my Ipaq 3670 with familiar 0.7.1 (see comments on http://www.handhelds.org/z/wiki/BlackDownJavaOnFam07).
1. It depends on what you need it for. Although Blackdown is not very fast, well written java program should be fine. I did real time graphics display with AWT and had no problems. And I used ipaq 3670, that is slower then 3970.
3. If you install familiar with Opie, then AFAIK you should be able to run everything like on Zaurus.
4. Networking is not a problem, I run java communication via wireless network.
5. There is a Swing example that comes with Blackdown.
Regards
Jarek
