Which JVM should I try on my Mio a701, Windows mobile 5.0?

An EE expert suggested:

For deployment on Windows you will need a 3rd party JVM for the PDA like Creme:

This one I found on the web:

http://www2s.biglobe.ne.jp/~dat/java/project/jvm/index_en.html

Any others out there?  Which would you recommend?

I may try several and see which one I can get to work first.

There are several. You will find a list of others (along with comparisions) here:

http://www.comp.lancs.ac.uk/~fittond/ppcjava.html

Creme has been used on production deployments and is one of the best. Another good one to try is IBM J9 (you will find it on that page). Note that most of them are not free, unlike the J2SDK from Sun :-(

Note that if you want to write J2ME code, make sure you write it as per the specification. For example, if you use CDC/ Personal Profile then stick to the specifications while coding (e.g., use AWT and not Swing). Creme supports Swing too but its an extra feature that it has - if you write Creme-specific code it might not work on other JVMs, so remember to use the JVM as only the JVM, not the specification/ API for coding.

The evaluation versions are free, though, for testing.

Yeah, Creme and J9 are the ones most popularly used as far as I've seen.

I think there is already a JVM with Windows Moble 5.0, intent MIDlet Manager from Start -> Programs.
