(Crazy) Idea for non-java phones for running lwuit.

Hello again.

We're developing a proximity service software using lwuit.
We want to have the wider support we can get for our program,
including devices such as the IPhone. Since the iphone (and maybe other devices)
cannot run java, we thought that the best option is to provide access to our software
as a local web service. (accessed from web browser through our WiFi point to local server).

And for cost reduction and lower developing time, i started thinking on the next idea.
The client connects to our local WiFi and surfs to local server. (192.168.0.1/...)
Running multiple JVM's on our local server, each JVM is running our software and
we transmit the screen image to the phone browser.
All i need to do is to wire touchscreen pressed points \ key events to the JVM,
and show the result on the phone.

I know it can be a bit leggy and slow.
is it simple to implement?
Can this idea work at all?

Regards
Or

Hi, it can certainly work, i have done some tests myself to simulate desktop browsing experience on my java based engine (http://www.prosciuttoproject.org) by capturing the image rendered by a gecko based browser serverside. This would rely on the same concept, although there might be some scalability problems I'm sure it can work. Cheers, Mario.
