Originally posted by Michael Yuan: OK, back to your Palm question: The RPC conversion tool for Palm OS is very old and buggy.

<INTERRUPTION> I don't want to throw this thread's topic off, but I wanted to ask Michael: How do you run your J2ME apps on the PPC? I recently purchased an ipaq, and would love to know how you're doing it! Thanks, Frank --> Back to the regularly scheduled conversation </INTERRUPTION>
I guess I'll resurrect this thread again. I have fixed my earlier problems and can run midlets on Sun's implementation for MIDP 1.0. Now I have encountered the same error when I try to use the PRC converter tool:
Any new ideas about what I need to do to fix this? Layne [ August 15, 2003: Message edited by: Layne Lund ]
With help from my new book, Java Development on PDAs, I figured out how to convert my jar/jad files into a prc file. Using the command line, you do something like
As long as the Converter.jar file is in the classpath, this will list the options you can use to convert a midlet into a prc file. (You could also specify the Converter.jar file as a command line argument, but this is the way I got it to work.) Once I got all the options correct, the resulting error message were much more helpful than when I ran the GUI Converter tool. I hope this helps someone in the future when the have the same problem.
