    What do you mean? Do you mean a java VM ON the phone? Do you really mean an emulator? On the desktop, written in Java?

    I'd be very happy with a jvm on the phone. The ability to build apps as applets would be awesome.

    Well, actually there already IS a JVM on the phone. In fact, webos uses java. You can program in Java all you want. Your app will remain homebrew of course.

    I've seen the word "java" in preware, and I didn't understand.

    Is it like "java" of Android, that is "converted" java instead of "real" java?

    Is there a way to convert or port jad/jar files to ipk files?

    Yes, a JVM is there, but you are wrong on the last part.

    There is no way known to output anything graphical using Java. You can write Java services, but there is no known way to output graphical data.

    Besides, you can use a better language like C, C++, or HTML/JavaScript/CSS.

    How am I wrong? If you use Java, Palm will NOT accept it into the app catalog.

    I meant the part where you said you can program in it all you want. The OP wanted to use it for something graphical (to what I can tell) and there is nothing on the Pre/Pixi to allow that (that is known of).

    I should have been more clear.
