I am diving into the Personal Profile world, aided by some docs. But I need some help, because I'm only 1 week old in Java (Personal Java even younger)

The release notes of J2ME Personal Profile for Zaurus
and http://java.sun.com/j2me/docs/pdf/PP_Programmer_Guide.pdf

In order to really understand what is inside an .ipk package containing a Java application, I want to launch the file manually using the command line.

I have installed the J2ME Personal Profile for Zaurus Version 1.0, Early Access Release (from sun web site).

In the programmer guide it is mentionned that to launch a .jar file, I should use the following command:
cvm [-Djava.class.path=classpath] className

But my file is a .jar

When running cvm from the directory where my .jar file is, I have tried:
cvm -Djava.class.path=. MyApplication.jar MyApplication

As well as
cvm -Djava.class.path=. -jar MyApplication.jar MyApplication

cvm -jar MyApplication.jar MyApplication

But none will work.

The application is the dictionary babbletower, that I've got working following Meanie's indication and a little reading on his web site (see thread http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=10160)

So can I run a .jar file if I don't have .class file? It's fine on my PC with the command
java -jar MyApplication.jar MyApplication

But not with cvm. What am I missing here? Do I need to create classes to be able to run the .jar file?

Thanks for any help

$QPEDIR/bin/evm -XappName=$0 -cp /home/QtPalmtop/java/Jago/Jago.jar Go

Take what you need from this.. I don't exactly know what it's saying. It's a bash script to run Jago.jar.
