Sun Microsystems Press Java Series has released a new book:
Core J2ME Technology and MIDP
Nearly a year in development, this book covers the latest release of MIDP and CLDC (1.0.3) and provides extensive coverage of all aspects of the API. It includes over 70 well-designed and clearly commented examples, and includes complete, in-depth references to MIDP and CLDC. It also has a bonus chapter on MIDP for the Palm OS.
Some of the examples included are:
- Creating a clipboard to share data among components
- Using Streams to read and write to persistent storage
- Searching and sorting with persistent storage
- Creating animations
- Translating coordinates and clipping rectangles
- Designing and developing a Todo List application
- Using HTTP GET and POST
- Session Management with Java Servlets using Cookies & URL-rewriting
- Using a Thread to download data in the background
There is an enhanced version of the Table of Contents (which highlights all examples and sidebar notes) available at the J2ME Developer Site Core J2ME

Shailesh, I do remember your interest early on. Thank you for your kind words and not forgetting about me (smile)
Although it has been nearly a year since I started the book, I do believe it was time well spent. My intention was to write a book that would cover all the bases from installation to complete coverage of the API, in detail. It was also important to time the book with the most current release of J2ME/MIDP.
The feedback I have received, up to this point, has been very positive. I hope you enjoy the book.
Thanks again!
