Java for PDA, Mac with Swing & Database?
I'm developing a database/swing educational Java application. Since
it's for retail distribution, it nees to run on a PDA and a Mac as
well as Windows. The database also needs to be multi-platform.
Is this do-able, or will I need separate distributions? I'm also
interested in software which simulates mac & pda, since I don't want
to buy that equipment unless it's absolutely necessary.

If by PDA you mean a handheld like the iPAQ then no, you won't be able to
write one application and have it run on both a desktop and the handheld.
PDAs will run either CLDC or CDC based profiles, such as the MIDP or
Personal (Basis) Profiles and not the full-blown J2SE desktop environment.
You can definitely *share* code between both applications; i.e., you can
write common code and share those classes between both development efforts.
But, you won't be able to write a single application and run it on both.
Nor would you really want to....
