Hi, All.
I'm interested in J2ME technology but I've never developed any Java application on micro devices. I've started to study basic concepts and code some simple programs. So i have the following questions:


- Which book is the best for preparing SCMAD ?
- Comparing to other technology, Is J2ME worth studying ?
- I've heard that Whizlabs SCMAD exam simulator doesn't like the real exam, really ? Do the Whizlabs exam help much to pass the SCMAD exam ? (i've never used any Whizlabs products before, actually i wanna try some of them)

Thank.

I've gathered some links posted in some old topics. I found 2 books:

1. Beginning J2ME: From Novice to Professional, Third Edition
Jonathan Knudsen Sing Li

2. Programming Wireless Devices with J2ME, Second Edition
Riggs, Taivalsaari, Van Peursem, Huopaniemi, Patel, Uotila

now i've the book no.2 (Java series) and already read a half of it, but i feel it provide only basic information. What about the book no.1 ?

Additionally, thanks to old useful links (i wonder why there are few J2ME topics ? - -')

Hi,
The Wireless Java by Jonathan Knudesen is a good book. There is no exam specific book for the SCMAD. According the past postings, there will be one by the end of this year. Well I am studying these days too. So Well come to the club if you are also studying. Go to the 2nd link which is given in the reply. It has Sathyas' notes. Which I find quite good to start up.

Good luck
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
