One of the hiccups wireless devices have today is lack of adequate security knowledge, Did this book have any chapter on Security as it affects the wireless world?

Yes, more than 100 pages of the book are dedicated to security topics ranging from HTTPS to custom crypto toolkits to XML Web Services security.
Many concrete code examples are given.

So far I see in the table of content, the book does contain the security issue in chapter-6, Advance HTTP techniques...
But I guess this issue is not deeply discussed in the book... I think we would rely on other book about the security issue deeply...

But I can see that the name "Enterprise J2ME: Developing Mobile Java Applications" itself reflects that this book will be dealing with security issue in Enterprise field... I'm not sure that the book covers every details concerning security issues in J2ME...

Actually, in addition to the above mentioned chapter 6:
Chapter 19: Mobile Security for Enterprise
Chapter 20: The J2ME Crypto Recipes
are completely dedicated to security topics. That is from pp 363 to 418. Not exactly 100 pages though.
cheers

Mr.Yuan,
Could u please explain an overview about the chapter 19? Since the topic is basically related to the title of the book "Enterprise J2ME", I hope that the topic in this chapter will mainly discuss about the connection between Mobile(Small) and Enterprise(Big) Systems....
Thanks a lot...

This chapter basically discusses the concept of content-based security and explains why secure WAP and HTTPS are not enough for mobile applications. Content-based security is also the basic model for any messaging systems (e.g., asynchronous web services). We talk about the CPU and memory limits on selecting crypto algorithms and review leading toolkits.
