    At this point Im looking to develope for Palm OS. But may in the future desire to program for windows CE. What would be the best for windows CE? I was hoping java would be decent cause I thought there was a jvm for Palm OS and am guessing there is one for windows CE plus I know a decent amount of Java.

    Hi Steve,

    What's the problem with the emulator? Do you use POSE (Emulator) or PalmSim (Simulator)?

    Hi Steve,

    I had the same philosophy-- code in Java and deploy to Palms, WinCE and cell phones all with the same codebase. Since I've been writing Java for five years, that was my first choice... So, I learned some J2ME and wrote an application. Adn, it does work fine on Java-enabled Palm devices and cell phones (CE is not J2ME compatible yet). The problem is that the interface completely sucks. There is so little control that the developer can excercise that it makes it almost useless to develop in. I was able to find some third-party API libraries that help in this regard, but IMHO it's just not ready for prime-time yet... It also doesn't help that people have to purchase the J2ME runtime from IBM before Java will run on the Palm.

    I am now looking into HB++. It looks to be a very promising IDE, but it's certainly true here that you get what you pay for... It's abit out of my price range, as I am a small one-person software company...
