Hi to all,

1.What is the difference between the wireless development of J2ME and C++?
2.How to compare the Advantages and disadvantages of J2ME and C++ in
Wireless Application Development?

Thank you so much.

ad 1)

I've never developed an app. in c++ for a mobile deviced, so I really
can't say. Im sure, you'll get alot of hits if you search for
"j2me vs c++" in google - so please post your findings when you find out

ad 2)

The primarily reason (edit: for using Java) is, that the Java have a broad support in the industry.
I think I read somewhere, that around 75% of all phones on the marked
in 2007 will have Java support.
There's also the fact, that Java is considered an open platform, which
means that an app. coded in Java should be able to run across a wide
range of mobile devices (note however, that it actually isn't like that
in the real world, because you often use 3th party API's)

I think, J2ME is a platform to write applications targeted at constrained consumer devices like CellPhones/PDAs etc. The J2ME platform contains JavaVM optimized to work for devices that has memory, network constraints and a set of APIs that can be used by developers to write applications. Essentially the programming language is Java and hence programmer can use his Java skills to develop aps using this platform.

So, I think J2ME platform can be used for application development without worrying too much about the constraints in consumer device domain which one needs to consider when developping the same application using C++ as a core programming language.
