Gmail on microemulator

Can gmail mobile app run on Palm?

I hope the gmail mobile application can run on Palm, but I am not sure. Since I am able to get it run on j2me microemulator emulator, it should work on any midp 2.0 compatible vm.

Gmail
Gmail App, running on midp emulator

This is how I do it. microemulator told me they are midp 2.0, but I encounter some problem while running the gmail application:

$ java -jar me-app.jar gmail.jad

I get a few error for class not found:
javax.microedition.pki.CertificateException
com.barteo.cldc.https.Connection (and a few other class)

I do a quick and dirty hack. I get CertificateException class from midp 2.0 from Sun, com.barteo package from cldc.jar (can be downloaded from http://www.littlespikeyland.com/mpp/ ).

The last part, where can I get the gmail mobile application? I download the generic program from:
http://gmail.com/app/v1.0.0/en/gm-Generic-Advanced_MIDP2.jad (rename to gmail.jad)
http://gmail.com/app/v1.0.0/en/gmail-g.jar

I get this 2 link from gmail help center.
