hi,
I'm going to write an app running on a PDA / pocket PC and I'm somewhat confused about how to start. I've downloaded CDC / PP from SUN. My current understanding (please correct me if I'm wrong) is, that SUN only provides c code to compile a JVM for a target device. This JVM is not for commercial use. SUN only provides java sources of the CDC (I didn't find any class files until now) i.e. I have to compile them using a standard compiler e.g. 1.3.1 or 1.1.8 depending on the target VM.
I need a VM for a specific target e.g. Creme, Jeode ( now JBEd), J9 (IBM), kada. Kada web site seems to be down (?). I appreceate any tips helping me to get started.

As you already said, you can download and install Creme and J9 for free. What is the question here?

the question is, whether my assumptions concening CDC / PP of SUN are right, or if i did overlook something. For J2ME/CLDC you get the class files for the API.

SUN provides no support whatsoever for the CDC/PP implementations. I believe the reference implementation only works on Linux machine with x86 CPU -- I might be wrong here but that was the last time I talked with SUN. I doubt whether you can compile them to ARM CPU targets.
