The following mailing lists are hosted by Palm, and it’s common to see Palm employees answering questions. While these lists are not officially supported, they serve as a good self-support mechanism and are constantly used by developers to answer each other’s questions.
Palm’s developer web site has forms to subscribe to any of these lists:
General Palm OS development
Development of conduits, for both Windows and Mac OS
Discussion of Palm OS Emulator
Discussion of communications (TCP/IP, serial, Bluetooth, IrDA)
Discussion of development tools
Java development (both native and conduit)
Development of Web Clipping applications
Announcements (no posting allowed) of interest to all Web Clipping developers
There are also forums for each of the licensees (IBM, Symbol, and so on).
Almost all the messages from the first two lists (Palm Developer Forum and Conduit Forum) have been archived at Yahoo! Groups (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/palm-dev-forum/ and http://groups.yahoo.com/group/conduit-dev-forum/). Less comprehensive archives for those groups, as well as archives for all the other groups, can be found at http://www.escribe.com.
In conjunction with HotDispatch, Palm has established this marketplace for support. You can post questions along with a price you’re willing to pay for the answer. ...
