    Hi,

    Does anyone know the difference between the Java environment for PalmOS supplied by www.java.com for free and the Java environment at palmone.com for $5??

    I didn't see a download for a JVM for Palm. Can you post a specific link?

    This looks like a Sun site. If so, the only JVM I think they made was MIDP4Palm. This was more or a proof-of-concept than a productized piece of software. It only supported the initial MIDP 1.0 release and was fairly slow.

    If you're interested in Java on Palm, the IBM JVM is the way to go. It seems fully standards compliant (cursory view) and now supports the optional PDA packages so you can get to the SD card and interact w/Calendar, Contacts, etc.

    Oh yeah, I was talking about MIDP for Palm (so you probably have the link already). So the IBM JVM is a good implementation, thanks for the info! So why do you think Palmone is charging for theirs?

    Actually it is IBM that is charging. Why? Because it is a product that required development and there is a limited market.

    You can get the official IBM release for free. All you have to do is go to the Palm Developer site and register (for free). Then you can download the entire JCK, which includes the runtime, for free.

    Search the forum here. The link was posted multiple time within the last week.

    Here's the link for the download:

    http://www.palmos.com/dev/tech/java/

    Also there have always been freeware java pluggins for PalmOS like Superwaba:

    http://www.superwaba.org/install/

    However, I don't think these alternative J2ME's have the same treo specific API's like the LBS etc. Thus while it may work for some midlets, only the IBM Websphere J2ME lisenced by PalmSource will probably take full advantage of the 650's features....
