For a project at Uni I am writing a basic program for a PDA using J2ME.

The project is going to take some while to do and am a complete novice with programming on a PDA.

So I'd just like to know what programs I need to install on my PDA? Do I need a virtual machine or will it be included already with my PDA.

Secondly, I imagine I need to compile on my Pc then transfer it over, is that true?

How do I execute any applications I produce. Baring in mind in the past I have only ever made console and gui applications for windows run using the "Java application.class" method of running my programs.

Thanks for the help....

You�ll need Sun�s Wireless toolkit and a VM for your PDA, if you have none installed (eg IBM Websphere).

Alternatively, you might consider the use of Superwaba http://superwaba.com.br
which has very nice functionality, but is not adherent to J2ME specs.

Thanks for the response.

How come some of the Java Programs (mainly games) I download onto my PDA run straight away with no need for a JVM?

Thanks alot... got my first "hello world" program working a minute ago. It's always exciting when you do something completely new for the first time and setting up the development framework is the most important part to me,,,,

If the Java games you download run , that means you do have a JVM ...
Have you installed Superwaba anyway?
