My objective is to create a java application that's hosted on a server and called remotely from a PDA using TELNET.
I've created a java application using Eclipse & the jCurses library. Unfortunately, the jCurses API events and listener aren't enough and i wasn't able to achieve my target application functionality.
Can anyone advise a library other than jCurses that can help create a java application that can be called from a PDA via TELNET?
Is AWT an option ?
creates a java.net.ServerSocket to listen for TCP connections from TELNET clients.
You do not need any graphics (jCurses or AWT) on the server side, telnet is a simple ascii protocol.
You just need (1) a Java application that runs in a command window at the server, and (2) a Telnet server, which you almost certainly already have, that will execute it and handle the network for you. You don't need to write any Java code for (2).
If your server OS is Linux (unix)
