I am writing my first J2ME applications using EclipseME and/or Sun Wireless
Toolkit 2.2.

When I write System.out.println() or System.err.println() statements, I know that this output is sent to the console when I am running my applications on the the emulators. Where does it go when I am running my application on the PDA?

Ideally, I'd like to be able to see it but I'll be content if you tell me
that I can't see it; I know that I should be debugging on the emulators, not on the PDA itself ;-) However, I would like some assurances that the console output isn't getting written to some kind of file on the PDA that will eventually exhaust my storage space.

By the way, what is the best way of logging on a PDA? I don't see any
logging stuff in the MIDP1.0 API so I'm not sure what approach people are
using for logging important information for the user or tech support people.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
