Poll: AWT or JSP?

Hi NGs,

if you’re developing your own apps for PDAs an ME / MI, which “programming-model” do you use? I’m interested in that, because we mostly tend to use AWT for PDA-apps because of usability.

Best regards,

Olli

    This of coursw depends on the business requirements. I think there's no general answer possible.

    I agree with Volker, there's no universal solution. Both AWT and JSP have advantages and disadvantages. I think this decision is up to the customer, becouse he knows what he wants. Of course, the technical details should be explained to the customer, before he makes the decision.

    If the application should pass the "Screwdriver" test, I would strongly recommend an AWT solution.

    In fact, I always wondered why the Eclipse MDK plug-in only contains a wizard for JSP applications.

    Kind regards,

    Steph

      The reason for having only a wizard for JSP applications migh t be: you can make more mistakes, when deploying a WEB application than a "simple" AWT client, which is more or less just a bunch of class files. But WEB apps consists of a restricted directory structure, config files (e.g. web.xml), and so on.
