    CDC development using Creme on MC70

    843849
      Hi All

      I need to develop a CDC application using Creme 3.2.9 on a MC70 PocketPC. This PDA has "Microsoft® Windows Mobile™ 2005" Operating System on it. Can anyone guide me as to what all softwares should I install for development, which emulator etc. I came across this link: http://www.netbeans.org/kb/60/mobility/cdcemulator-setup.html#emulators but with all the different links on it, I am really confused which one to go for. Also, if you could suggest whether I should use Swing GUI or just AWT?


      Thanks in advance
      Dorothy

            If you do not plan to build or use thirdparty widgets, you can acheive the best UI by using SWT from Eclipse.
            You will then get support for a "nice"/better table, which used to be lacking in the normal AWT stack.
            It will put more requirement on you as a developer to manage the UI resources - but it is pretty straight forward.

            Creme jvm - "The default and preferred graphics library is based on the Truffle implementation of AWT."
            - I do not know if there widgets are better than the old AWT implementaion.
