Full Version: Mono Development On The Sl-c3000
OESF Portables Forum > General Forums > General Discussion

Hello,

I didn't find an appropriate forum for this topic, so I posted here.

Does anyone do C# development on the Zaurus SL-C3000 (or 1000) using the MONO packages from http://www.eringal.com/zaurusmono/?

Is it possible to use the mono framework for developing graphical applications for the Zaurus? Is it possible to create real platform independent programs, as .net promises?

I intend to develop some programs using graphical output (such as outliners, mindmappers...), which also run on other platforms without the need to port the code, and which are future-proof (so don't have to be ported once new platforms come to market, which hopefiully support the .net framework).

I don't know anything about .net yet, so my assumptions may be naive, but maybe this is the way to create real platofrm-independent software?

Thanks for any input!

Hi,
I don't know if the 3000/1000's come with Java, but I would surgest using that rather than the Mono version above. I have used Mono at work and the version that your talking about is VERY old. Unless you want to port the current version (available at http://www.mono-project.com) it's going to be very hard going.
That said it would be great if someone would port this over.....

I believe there is a version of swing that will work on the zaurus and this will allow you to write an very nice looking application in java that will run on most desktops and a number of PDAs.

I looked into this when I thought about writing QuackNews (had to get the plug in somewhere) and this was the main reasong for using Java over C#.

Hpe this helps...
