Hi everybody,
I have a java application which can be used by desktops as well as PDA/Handheld devices. Since the size of the application jar file is around 3MB, its nota good idea to distribute it for PDA/handheld devices due to memory constraints.

Is anybody aware of a Java native compiler , which will convert my application Jar to an WinCE executable.

I searched a lot on the intenet but there is no product which exactly satisfies my requirements. A few like SuperWaba/Waba create a WinCE exe but only for the programs written in their proprietory language.

Any suggestions/guidance from you would be most appreciated.

Thanks & Regards

What you probably want is the Java 2 Mobile Edition (J2ME). That is the Java version form handhelds and you can download it from Sun. Also the latest version of NetBeans, V 5.0 has some pretty cool looking handheld capabilities built in.

However I'm not sure about you reference to WindowCE... Isn't that old?
Is not the current handheld OS called Windows Mobile Edition? I am far from being expert in all the different flavors of handheld OSs so maybe it isn't a problem.
