Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book presents the Java™ 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME™) standards that support the development of applications for consumer devices such as mobile phones, two-way pagers, and wireless personal organizers. To create these standards, Sun collaborated with such consumer device companies as Motorola, Nokia, NTT DoCoMo, Research In Motion, Samsung, Siemens, Sony Ericsson, and many others. The result is a highly portable, small-footprint application development environment that brings the unique capabilities of Java technology, including platform independence and enhanced security, to the rapidly growing wireless market.

This definitive Java™ Series guide provides a programmer's introduction to the Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition. It presents a general description of wireless technology and an overview of the J2ME platform. In addition, the book details the Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) version 1.1 and the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) version 2.0, the standards that define the Java platform features and libraries for wireless, resource-constrained devices.

Written by a team of authors that includes the original J2ME technology experts from Sun, Motorola, and Nokia, this book provides a description of the Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition, as well as practical implementation advice.

The Java™ Series is supported, endorsed, and authored by the creators of the Java technology at Sun Microsystems, Inc. It is the official place to go for complete, expert, and definitive information on Java technology. The books in this Series provide the inside information you need to build effective, robust, and portable applications and applets. The Series is an indispensable resource for anyone targeting the Java™ 2 platform.
