Is the MIDP profile usable on PDAs? Or do I have to wait until the PDA profile is released?

Can I use J2ME/MIDP to develop for a PDA, or is it better to wait for the PDA profile to be released?

All the examples I have seen are for mobile phones. How will they look on a PDA?
We are starting a bluetooth project for the Siemens SX45 PDA which will support J2ME/MIDP when it is released autumn 2001.

Search for this string in Sun's website (java.sun.com) "MIDP for Palm OS: the wait is finally over", it should tell you what to do...

Christer,

I recommend that you build for MIDP now and you should
be able to re-use most of your code when the PDA profile
comes out. I work at PointBase and we have a J2ME RDBMS
(called Micro) that is only 41KB in size. We give developers a JDBC subset
API so it is easy for them to create applications that require
persistence on J2ME devices. We also have syncroization from
J2ME to backend enterprise databases as well. We are working
with many companies who are creating applications for J2ME and
went through an extensive beta program for Micro. Most of
them are concentrating on MIDP today unless they are using
a PDA like Compaq iPaq. On that platform they use PJava.
For phones, I would suggest that you concentrate on MIDP.

I would love to find out more about what your application is
going to do.
