Subject Re: Tomcat & JDK for PDA arm processor
Date Thu, 13 Apr 2006 21:00:23 GMT
IBM's J9 VM is probably the best implementation for running J2ME 
flavored Java code. 

I've been working with it a lot, and it was better than Jeode.  The only 
problem being that it's hard to figure out from IBM where you can just 
purchase the VM.  For the moment you have to download the trial version 
of their Web Services Device Developer application, which includes the 
J9 VM.
