Hi John,
I have a yearning to write some java on my handheld.
Is this in the realms of fantasy?
Does your book cover anything to do with writing applications for palmtops/handhelds?

This is the introductory forum here - lets not get carried away and confuse all the greenhorns.
I'm going to move this to the micro-edition forum where you be able to find plenty of resources.

Depends what kind of handheld you're talking about. For PocketPCs or Symbian devices, Java is definitely an option, it's here now. For Palm devices it's just starting to be viable: you really need to use a special product like IBM's J9 or esmertec's Jbed to do serious work. Sun's Palm solution right now, MIDP4Palm, is simply not good enough.
