For various reasons, it would be good to have the ability to run MIDP apps on the Zaurus. Unfortunately for us, PP is not a superset of MIDP, and lacks much of the UI stuff.
I figure, though, that it must be possible to implement a large amount of MIDP using PP. I've seen some stuff for running MIDP on J2SE, but never on PP...
Does anyone know if something is available for bridging this gap?
There are two MIDP emulators which will work on the Zaurus with Jeode. See ME4SE (Micro Edition for Standard Edition)
for one that runs full screen on the Zaurus. MicroEmulator
uses a simple cell-phone skin that does not fit the 5xxx screen well, but otherwise works fairly well. They both have some problems with many freely available MIDP apps (jad/jar file pairs), but so will any of the available emulators and all of the MIDP devices because every jvm for MIDP is different. These are MIDP 1.0 emulators but there are MIDP 2.0 on MIDP 1.0 emulators available too.
I have been developing MIDP 1.0 apps on the Z for a while with these emulators, together with Jeode, Jikes, and Vim. Get Jikes at my On-board Compiler site.
