  • Klick OK and Execute.
  • be patient it will take a little time for the gui to come up.

Deploying the rocMobile JAR

This is just for convienience. It is as well possible to get rocmobile on your pda using other Methods like a SD-Card or Bluetooth. On Windows you can use Active Sync.

On a Linux box the following commands to connect your PDA:

$ dccm
# sudo synce-serial-config ttyUSB0
# sudo synce-serial-start

As the PDA is connected you can copy the files to it:

$ synce-pcp rocmobile.jar ":/rocmobile/rocmobile.jar"
$ synce-pcp rocmobile.txt ":/rocmobile/rocmobile.txt"

And start rocmobile from your Desktop:

$ synce-prun "../Programme/Mysaifu JVM/jre/bin/jvm.exe" – "-Xmx4M -Xconsole -setcwd \rocmobile\ -jar \rocmobile\rocmobile.jar"
