    Is there anyway to enable the Treo to run apps that require Java?

    i have been using superwamba

    it seems to work... if you install the correct files...

    i dont think you can execute the jar files they need to be coverted to prc...

    Could you give us a bit more details on "it seems to work"? And which version/files did you install?

    The last time I looked into this was about a month ago and none of the JVM were working on the Treo.

    I tried a few..

    the main ones are:

    IBM WebSphere

    http://www.palmone.com/us/enterprise/products/ibm.html

    http://pluggedin.palmone.com/regac/pluggedin/Java.jsp

    it seem more difficult to configure and i am unsure if it works...

    SUN MIDP
    http://java.sun.com/products/midp4palm/download.html

    i could noth get this to work... it reset the machine

    there are others as well but this is what i use:

    SuperWaba

    http://www.lestercat.net/dev/superwaba/index_2.1.php4

    (I use a mac)

    but the links are ok

    get the latest SuperWabaSDK its about 40 mb

    inside that there is a folder called
    PalmOS_5_or_4_with_16bits_screen

    install the files in this directory... it works

    i have tried a few java apps and it works fine

    they have to be converted to prcs and dbs this is easier to do on a pc.. i use some unix tools - warp and exegen

    Installed Superwaba and tried a few apps and it's running fine. However, it doesn't see the sun midp converted prc's which doesn't surprise me. What does surprise me a little is that apparently there's no easy way to convert an existing jad or jar into a superwaba prc.

    gernst, could you explain how you converted the java apps on unix? Worst case I try the steps you used but using cygwin instead.

    I'm a complete newbie as far as Java on a Palm is concerned. How do all these software work? I have to download the java app, then convert it to prc then install it?

    yeah.. thats about it...

    i have had some trouble with the conversion on a mac.. but i believe the some of the pc tools are better

    you could try jump to covert the files to prc. dont have time to try it bu have heard it works

    (this is actually jump2)

    It would be a lot easier if the Treo just supported Java

    Oops, should have read the full thread....

    What type of Java apps would I want to run on my Treo? Can someone give some examples?

    so let me get this straight. you are saying if i install (which i have) one of those java programs, convert mobitv to the .prc extension, i can run it on treo 600? anybody get around to this yet? i'm still figuring out the whole java conversion to .prc.

    I wouldn't asume anything. All I know is that MobiTV requires J2ME or BREW compatible phones to work...so assuming superwaba is compatible, I don't see why Dev couldn't port MobiTV to the Treo600...

    the TipicMe website has a download for a J2ME environment that works on the Treo600
