What do you want to know ?

I suggest starting off with the core utility classes like Vector and Hashtable, many of the contemporary workers will advise you to use sophisticated tools that are the result of a lot of good work by experienced folks - but to use ME effectively you will have to know how to use a limited toolset from util effectively acheiving advanced work with a sparse toolset.

Other than that, try to grasp how advanced work is really mastery of the basics.

I want to know a Java ME book name which helps me to be strong in the basics of Java ME. A book that gives me a crystal clear picture of the basics of Java ME. Can you understand what i'm expecting?

Did you do a search on previous posts?

You should find many answers to your question.

I personally felt J2ME Complete Reference a good book of beginners.

Oh,, definitely. That understanding is exceedingly difficult for beginners to grasp: Mastery is just mastery of the basics.

Let my try this suggestion and see what your observation of my advice is.

I had exactly the same needs, and after spending many paychecks on books decided on Cay S. Horstmann's "Core Java" series.

Core Java Web Page
See some reviews:

  • [list]JavaWorld
  • JavaRanch
  • DevX
  • Dr. Dobbs
  • Computing bookshelf


  • If those do not come up in the browser, just be aware of the fact that with nothing but these two books and an sdk from a vendor, I could write intensely powerful applications that would shame many contemporary commercial offerings that people buy every day.
