Hi All,

can I run PhoneME stand-alone, so without a connection to the JDK on my HP 214 Ipaq PDA?

Which version of PhoneME do I need to use? Can somebody provide some information on i.e. where to find it/download it and how to install it so that I don't run into problems with certificates?

Tried JBed : no luck, Mysaifu seems to be a dead project, I am quite desperate....

Thanks in advance!

Cheers

André

Hi Andre,

I think your device is running Windows Mobile 6 Classic. I have not checked this Windows Mobile edition, but you can try
my phoneME builds for Windows Mobile at:

Thanks Davy for your reply because it is really hard to find support for this older device/os.

So question is : what is special about your version of the JVM? Dealing with certificates I guess because that has been the issue most of the time.

Another question is is PhoneME the same as J2ME or are we talking about two different beasts?

Thanks again for your help, really appreciate it!

Cheers

André

Briefly spoken, my builds are just a Windows Mobile port for the two kinds of JavaME virtual machines:

* phoneME Feature (CLDC/MIDP) for running midlets (though some JSRs are not supported)
* phoneME Advanced (CDC/FP/PP) for running more 'generic' applications

You can find Oracle's official reference implementations of these JavaME VMs over here:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javame/downloads/index.html

Note that these packages are closed source and offer functionality that is not available in the
phoneME open source implementation.

Davy

Is Terrance also working on this project? Because Terrance stated that J2ME only runs in debug modus on the HP 214 target when having a connection between SDK and target, so it would be impossible to run it stand alone.

I will try to run it anyway.

I guess he is referring to the Java ME SDK 3.0.

At the moment, I don't see any activity in the phoneME subversion repositories. It has been months since
there was an update in the source code. Back in the Sun days, we had regular updates. I guess the
open source phoneME platform has become less of a priority for Oracle.

Perhaps Terrence or Hinkmond can comment? Are there any plans for the open source phoneME project
from Oracle's side in the near future, or is further development taking place behind closed doors?

Best regards,
Davy
