Since I've only skimmed through some of the specs to get idea for how it works, I didn't see much documentation on how they see the J2ME progressing in the future and whether it will be easily available to integrate, support, or supplement J2EE systems.

I imagine that Sun doesn't know exactly where J2ME is going either! However, it already has the communcation capabilities so I'm sure that communicating with J2EE or any other web application should be easy.

Thanks Bill. You wrote Exam Cram right? Excellent book, it really helped me with the programmer's exam.
I designing j2ee based website now, and I wanted to see if it would be worth looking into passing some of the functionality to palms. I read through a little of the community process on RMI but I'm curious to see how well that is going to work out in the immediate future.
What do you think?

You can pretty much count on HTTP support in all J2ME implementations. There is also an RMI Profile under development, but it sits on top of the CDC and not the CLDC, so it won't really target Palms, but larger/faster devices. For the near term, think of tunneling everything through HTTP.
