This sounds like a great move for Palm... hopefully enabling professional rapid application development on the platform. A lot of businesses use Java in house and having J2ME available will hopefully go some way to countering Visual Studio and .NET on PPC. Downloading now...

Finally! Hires Java

I tried this yesterday and it's a huge improvement over the old Java VM. It can finally do more than 160x160 and it runs a lot faster. I was planning on doing a Java Jabber client ( for the Palm but I wasn't very motivated because of the 160x160 limitation. It's really hard to do anything useful with a 160x160 screen, at least it is for me. Well, it's doable but it's frustrating if you know that most new devices can do at least 320x320. So I guess I should start programming again ;)

Jabber, the next-generation IM system.

You already had hires in java for a while with superwaba.
Superwaba is the best JVM for palm devices and it's free and open source ! Check out
And with superwaba, you get cool classes specialized for palm devices. I don't really see why you should pay for a JVM !
