    Which language for development on Symbiad: C++ or J2ME?

    Hello, I am new in moble application development. I'd likde to ask your opinions on choice of development languages on Symbian OS.
    Traditionally people use C/C++ as tool for mobile development, but with more functionality added on J2ME and more memory on handset, how many people think about switch to J2ME?
    Can anyone in here tell us:
    1 Comparing with C++, what are the main limitations with J2ME ?
    2 Is there any application which can be build with C++ but J2ME?

    Many thanks

    I'll start, probably some others will chip in

    1) C++ has better access to native capabilities and less execution overhead. Java is easier to learn. Java ME has its own UI elements, there is no access to the native UI element from midlets. Cannot get the network data (like signal strength, etc) from Java ME.

    2) you cannot develop voice mail application using Java ME (no access to the voics call).

    There is also a number of similar threads on these boards, You can use the search function to find more info.
