1. Is there no way to associate j9.exe or j9w.exe with jar filesSee http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=737820
so jar files would run just as any other application ?
2. If a shortcut has to be created, like the one quoted above,Why not try it?
is there no way to use relative paths?
3. In the shortcut, everything has to be inclosed in quotes ?Ditto.

I started this post around 2006, and three years and nothing has changed...
I really hope Sun will eventually lose their hold in the cellular/pda market.
This company doesn't deserve to be a player in the field of PDAs
The missing implementations, the endless and strange standards, the CLDC/CDC/MIDP/Midlets confusions, the lack of beginner tutorials (lack of tutorials!!!), the mess, the amount of stuff not working, the error-in-compilation demos and examples....
All of those bring me to use .NET in my PDA, and advocating agains Sun wherever I can when it comes to cellulars/pda.
I really trully hope and wait to downfall of these terrible standards.
Keep your hands out of J2ME, or whatever they call it...
Frustrated like I never was before
I should have looked at mirkhurramali's post sooner because I spent entire week just to set up the environment especially I'm new to java language as well. This indeed a good thread.
I'm not a developer anything, but I use both EVC and VS2005 for device before, and it's easier.

I did a "step-by-step" tutorial last year, with every necessary step to construct a Pocket PC application "CDC"(running on Windows Mobile) using Swing.
If you follow every step, at the end you will get your application running. Here is the link http://www.codexistence.com/articles.php?id=1 .
I've been studying Java with the Open University and would like to put into practice some of my newfound knowledge on the mobile side of things.
Can anybody help me get started by telling me which configuration I should be using with regard to CLDC/CDC-MIDP, are there any JDK's for the Touch HD etc?
I have tried searching but to no avail so far so would appreciated your help.
Also, is there a decent Java compiler that operates under WM6. As that would be novel to play around with too! I currently use NetBeans on my pc.
