J2ME stands for Java 2 Micro Edition. The tool can be used in writing Java applications for wireless devices. It differs from Java 2 in regards to the libraries that are available to developers, as the applications you will be writing won't be as large.
Check out this link - as it provides a nice Power Point presentation on the basics of J2ME. http://www.objectsinc.com/download.html
Another resource you should check out is the book, "Java 2 Micro Edition: A Professional Developer's Guide" by Eric Giguere. I haven't read the book yet - but I hope to soon!
Hope that helps!
Chris

I would like to add some thing here. J2ME not only covers wireless devices , but it covers other devices like PDA's ( palm Pilots ) , smart cards & other lot many devices. thus , they are devided into cldc & cdc depending upon the memory requirements of the devices.
You will not having many things which consumes a lot of resources ( awt , swing ) .There are many oher issues. But , now, You please complete SCJP peacefully & have a go at j2me then.
SHAILESH.

well i would like to add a point to what the others have said about j2me. apart from being a suite of tools for developing applications for wireless devices, one can also develop applications for other consumer durables, like microwave owens, refregirators, etc. Currently, the API for programming to those devices in the form of Embedded Java, but likely to be incorporated into the J2ME fold in the future.
regards,
esh

Interesting. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a good book that covers this. Just got a palm pilot today!
