Hi
Before I get into really looking at J2ME, I was wondering if I there is any way to do enterprise development (eg, EJBs) using the J2ME platform?
Thanks
Mark

There was actually a technical session at JavaOne today on this very topic! Basically, MIDP and other profiles will all support HTTP. Using HTTP you can talk to servlets which then can connect to EJBs (similar to JSP-Servlet-EJB).
Also, the EJB 2.0 spec calls for full JMS support, allowing EJBs to be invoked by messages. With the available of thin JMS clients, we're sure to see this is a common model.
Also, there is currently a RMI profile underway.

(I assume you were talking about for mobile devices, but remember, J2ME includes a whole host of sub-PC devices, many of which are quite powerfull, and maybe even fully connected. These can also talk to J2EE servers.)
