Designed for writing programs that need to fit into embedded systems and other small environments, Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) has minimal resource requirements. J2ME in a Nutshell explains the J2ME way of doing things with a particularly handy mix of API documentation and example-centric tutorials. Author Kim Topley uses the proven Nutshell format to explain J2ME concisely and thoroughly. This book is for software developers who will be writing embedded applications in Java -- programmers with experience either in other Java environments or with other embedded systems environments.
To the experienced Java developer, J2ME (the Java 2 Micro Edition) looks just familiar enough to be tempting, but is just different enough to warrant caution. J2ME in a Nutshell provides the extra security you need when venturing into programming for cell phones, PDAs and other consumer electronic devices. It gives you the reference material you need for J2ME, together with a tutorial that leverages your existing knowledge and teaches you what is different about J2ME without boring you to tears with details you already know. J2ME in a Nutshell provides a solid, no-nonsense reference to the "alphabet soup" of micro edition programming, covering the CLDC, CDC, KVM and MIDP APIs. The book also includes tutorials for the CLDC, KVM, MIDP and MIDlets, MIDlet user interfaces, networking and storage, and advice on programming small handhelds.
