Never mind JVM on Palm Simulators

Never mind JVM on Palm Simulators

Never mind. I have been struggling with this for over a week. Turns out
there are two JVM downloads - one for the simulator and one for actual

If you download the correct file it seems to work just fine.

1. simulator and Palm owner name

2. Why doesn't Palm simulator catch same bugs as the Emulator

I know they are two different beasts, with the simulator running os 5
and up, and the emulator 4 and below.

I'm working on two programs right now. One can be run in either
simulator or emulator. Although I have to run the low-resolution
version on the emulator.

I had a really strange crashing issue on my actual device (a treo 650
in this case.) So I then went to the simulator to debug. It would
just crash the simulator itself, sometimes nothing at all.

Then, I ran it on the emulator in debug mode, and I found out I was
screwing with the stack...going out of bounds on an array.
Why didn't the simulator pick this up?

I ask this because in this case, this program, it's ok as I can use the
emulator. But the other application requires Palm oS 5.0 and above,
and must use the simulator. It is also exhbiting strange crashing
behavior, and it's a bear trying to figure out where my problem is, but
I imagine if I could run it on the emulator all would be found.

Any ideas here? Do I need some different setting on the simulator, or
does it just not catch as many bugs as the emulator can.

Thanks everyone.
