Goodbye to VMD

If you are running Linux 64 bit don't even consider using NetBenas Visual Mobile Designer (VMD). Actually do not consider developing mobile applications on any 64 bit platform (Linux, Mac or Windows).

The newer feature-rich Java ME SDK 3.0 is available only for Windows XP and Vista while the old Sun Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5.2 is available only for Linux 32 bit platforms.

In short, although you will see on the NetBeans download page that Java ME is supported technology for Linux 64 bit platform that is not true. One can create project but it is not possible to compile, run or deploy it.

You can try to install JDK 32 bit on Linux 64 bit but eventually you will run into problems.
