Book: J2ME in a Nutshell
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. Combined with O’Reilly’s classic quick reference to all the core micro-edition APIs, this is the one book thatwill take you from curiosity to code with no frustrating frills in between.This book is a desktop quick reference for the Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME ). It is intended for Java programmers writing applications for devices with limited memory resources and processor power, such as cell phones, Personal Data Assistants (PDAs), and set-top boxes. The first part of this book provides a fast-paced introduction to the two different configurations that make up the J2ME platform — the Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) and the Connected Device Configuration (CDC), along with the profiles that are based on them, such as the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP), which provides the APIs for programming cell phones and similar devices. These chapters are followed by a quick-reference section that details each class of the CLDC and MIDP APIs, along with tables that show which Java packages and classes are available in each configuration and profile.
