Thanks, Sue.

This sounds like a good intro to J2ME, especially for a free workshop. I 
believe you also do more extensive courses on a contract basis for businesses, 
right? (http://www.switchbacksoftware.com/bootcamp.htm)  For me "bootcamp" 
gives the impression that I'll be waking up the next morning with a sore brain 
and realizing it's about to start all over again ;-)   I'm wondering if you or 
your company ever schedules and advertises a full 2-day J2ME bootcamp that 
anyone can sign up for.

When I first got started in Palm development I'd studied and used a little Java 
and wondered about writing Java apps for the Palm platform. At the time it 
seemed like it wasn't quite there and I took the more traditional C language 
route.  But I think that may possibly be changing now that some of the new 
Palms are shipping with VMs written in fast native ARM code.  If you had a 
course on the calendar and a published price I might be interested, and suspect 
others in the area would as well.

I was disappointed that the PDA profile for J2ME didn't quite get off the 
ground, but there's still the MIDP, which is pretty powerful.  There will 
always be a lot more handsets with Java VMs than there ever will be Palm OS or 
Windows Mobile handset.  Something to think about.
