Hi,
I have been looking at the Mobile Media API article on the Sun site (http://wireless.java.sun.com/midp/articles/mmapioverview/) and am now interested in producing a multimedia-rich app that would incorporate streaming audio/video, amongst other items. Does your new book, Jonathan, cover this MMAPI in detail? Are there any other interesting links out there to get me started?
Thanks
Mark

Hi Mark,
No, my book doesn't cover MMAPI, although it does include a new chapter on sampled sound and tone generation, a part of MIDP 2.0 that is a subset of MMAPI.
My theory is that MMAPI won't really become interesting until the 3G networks arrive. But that's not too far in the future now.
I'm currently working on a camera application using MMAPI that will probably be published at http://wireless.java.sun.com/ in July or August. I have grand plans for an image blogging application but I don't know if that's going to happen or not.
I don't have juicy links for MMAPI, but here's a good starting point:
http://java.sun.com/products/mmapi/
I have an introductory article too, but I'm not sure how it differs from the one you already read:
