This is a really good resource for configuring your Eclipse IDE with everything you'll need:

http://eclipseme.org/docs/installation.html

Read through their links, and you should be fine. Good luck.

If you will be developing for multiple phones, i.e. Sprint, Cingular, etc., I'd say to simply use the latest wireless toolkit. I currently use version 2.2.

However, if you want to exploit particular phone features in your midlet, you'll want to use the toolkit from that particular service provider. For instance, Sprint has a developer's network and their own emulator. This emulator help's you test Sprint phone specific features. The Blackberry has a similar emulator.

I hope this answers your question. In the end, I'd recommend the J2ME Wireless Toolkit, since, for the most part, anything that can be compiled and lauched from there is safe.

Personally, I've run into little quirks for certain J2ME APIs for different phones that no toolkit will help you catch, without the manufacturer's manual for that particular phone.
