WebSphere Everyplace Micro Environment Personal Profile 1.0 for Sharp Zaurus

This is IBM's Personal Profile for Java for the Zaurus.

You can download a free trial version from Handango which is fully functional. It seems you only need to buy a licence if you wish to deploy apps on other machines.

Download from Handango

This is much more recent than other Java's for the Zaurus (apart maybe from the 6000).

Just tried it on my c-860 and it seems to work fine.

Hmm, it seems to be 78.5Mb big!!

I wonder why?
ralphrmartin
Its so big because most f it is files for Windows / Linux.

After you extract it, the ipk for the Zaurus is about 3MB.

I downloaded this on my dialup connection last night and extracted the ipk for install on my Z. After an installation on my 5600 with the Watapon rom v1.5.5 (that has no java with it), here is what it shows:
CODE
# evm -version
Jeode EVM Version 1.10.7
 Supported Java Platforms: Personal Java 1.2
 Requires JeodeClass: 1.10.7

I believe that's the some old java?

Yep, from the release notes it looks like the binary's called 'startj9ppro'

Si

You need to set $IVEHOME to /home/QtPalmtop/j9/ppro10
(seems to be a minor mistake in the readme about where IVEHOME should be)

and then I have setup the alias
java='$IVEHOME/bin/startj9ppro'

Now doing

java -version

gives

java version "1.3.0"

I know that the 1.3 JDK had Swing, but I'm doubtful that the Personal Profile has Swing. Still, wishful thinking makes me ask anyway. Does this version have Swing?

Ahhh... thank you ralphrmartin

Thanks

okay, I know I am a dork ....... wink.gif but i copied exactly this in su
set $IVEHOME /home/QtPalmtop/j9/ppro10
java='$IVEHOME/bin/startj9ppro'

and yet java -version
gives this:
bash: command not found
I installed it on the command line cuz my installer doesn't work at all anymore.

so what am I doing wrong?

TIA

Has anyone compared this IBM jre with the Personal Profile java from Sharp?

I have the Sharp package here:

http://www.bryandeluca.com/feed/personal-p...fcs-b25_arm.ipk

Is one faster than the other, is one more featureful, etc.

Thanks!

lareya:

add the following two lines to your
.bash_profile
file:

export IVEHOME=/home/QtPalmtop/j9/ppro10
alias java='$IVEHOME/bin/startj9ppro $@'

then type

source .bash_profile

then

java -version

should tell you you are using IBM's java.

stupkid:

No benchmarks done as yet, still playing with it.

johnw:

Its a J2ME version, not J2SE, so I believe it doesn't have Swing.

To quote the IBM readme:

jclPPro10 is an implementation of the J2ME Personal Profile 1.0 (JSR-62), based on the CDC/Foundation Profile

The J9 runtime environment is Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME™) compliant and contains Connected Device Configuration (CDC) based technologies.
