  Palm sample in Java

 

 Purpose

This is the J2ME version of our combination application. It's one of the Palm Samples.

 Requirements

You need J2ME (see tools section).

 Source code

Below is the .java file. For .jad, MANIFEST.MF, .png and .prc, please download the ZIP file.

    public long factorial(int n) {

    }
    
    public long combination(int n, int p) {

    }
    
    public void go(int n, int p) {
    frmOut = new Form("Combination>Java");
    
    frmOut.append("factorial(" + n + ") = " + factorial(n) + "\n");

}

 Comments

We'll only import a minimal set of J2ME classes. Just enough for our simple UI. Please note that this J2ME version of combination also runs on a Java phone as is. Yes, you read correctly: you don't have to change any line of code! You'll find the .prc in the ZIP file mentioned above. If you'd like to deploy this app to a Java phone, you'll need to use a specific tool to package it and upload it on the device.

The UI is created in startApp(), events are handled in commandAction(Command c, Displayable s).

The core functions are located at the end of the .java file: factorial(), combination() and go(). Here, note that the overhead is pretty limited, compared with the Palm SDK version.
