I have been requested by a friend and thus started studying J2ME from yesterday. I baught a book from O'Reilly J2ME in Nutshell. I can confidently tell you that this is a very good resource to start j2me.
I have a few questions regarding J2ME here.
(1) What are the other possible languages (except Java) to program cell-phones, PDAs, set-top boxes and other small target devices?
(2) What is Low-end PDA and High-end PDA? What's the boundary that separates these two?
(3) What is floating point hardware?
(4) Does CVM means Connected Virtual Machine?
(5) What is a set-top box?
(6) Which one is more used currently in the market, CDC or CLDC implementation? I mean market for which is better right now?
(7) What tools do you use programming J2ME? I am planning for Sun's wireless toolkit with KVM and Forte For Java.
(8) What's your view on future of J2ME?
Thank you and waiting for your reply. :roll:

hi Ashikuzamman;
Well i cant ans all of your question but some which i know are as follow:
1)C/C++ codewarrior development kit use for it.(visit,also VB and also VC i think so.
(2) Don't know
(3)Very very nice question but don't know either
(5) Is not for hand held device and api used to program that is CDC(CONNECTED DEVICE CONFIGURATION)
(6)As CDC is not used for hand held device such as Palm ,Cell phone so handheld devices are used more so i think CLDC have more market value but both are J2ME part.
(7)Jbuilder i think is best but i using c/c++ use code warrior development kit also for java u can use Code warrior wireless studio IDE for java.
(8)Yes j2me is good but there what i listen is also waba and Kada which are double fast then J2me but due to GNU license they can not get popularity.
