I need to develop a program (as yet to be identified) to run on my HP iPaq 214 PDA running the Windows Mobile 6. I have been suggested to use Java. I am new to Java (a couple months experience), but have some experience with programming.

I am finding it difficult to get my head around what exactly I need to use to develop this program and where to get started. Developing and running Java applications on my desktop PC is not a problem. Do I have to use Java ME or is this purely for mobile phones? I am currently using the Netbeans 6.1 IDE - are there any IDEs out there more suited to the task and are there any suitable desktop emulators available for Windows Mobile 6 that will run under Vista 64-bit?

I would start with Java Micro Edition (Java ME) and NetBeans is an IDE you can use.  For terminology in tutorials look for CDC (Connected Devices -- includes handhelds/PDAs).

Eclipse (another free IDE) can handle Java ME development as well.
