Hoping to become a Java Titan someday!

I wanted to develop a simple app for doing woodworking.  It would help with some measurement calcs.

Is it possible to develop an app that I can install on a phone as well as a Palm PDA?

Would the base code be the same, just the deployment mechanism changes?

MIDP works fine on phones and palms, without much trouble. The only drawback in the Palm implementation of MIDP is that it doesn't support transparent images. Not really a problem in your case, right?

Hey, thanks for the reply!  Yes, I don't think I'll have any use for transparent images.

My wife has a palm tungsten c.  Do you know of any links to help jump start me learning about doing an app on it?

MIDP 1.0, from Sun:

There is an IBM implementation of MIDP 2.0, but I don't know where you can get it (let us know if you find out Wink )
