Hi

In fall I am going to be starting my degree in wireless and mobile technologies.

I want to get a bit of a head start on learning J2ME so I can have a buffer and divert time to other courses if needed.

I am unsure at this time what book they would be using(if any). I am going to try to find that out but in the chance that they don't use one what are some good books?

this is the outline for the first wireless class:

* Develop thorough understanding of issues associated with developing applications on handheld user devices such as cell-phones that are CPU, memory, battery-power starved and have a small area for User Interface.
* Learn how to develop wireless applications using J2ME (Java 2 Micro Edition) and Wireless Toolkit from Sun.
* Understand the process of over-the-air application download.

Course description

This course focuses on developing and deploying wireless applications on (2.5G or above) cell phones and PDAs. Popular data applications involving text messaging, web-browsing and email access for cell-phones & PDAs will be developed. This is a lab-based course in which students gain hands-on experience by developing the said applications using J2ME and related Java APIs on emulators.



Thanks

Hi,

Take a look here: http://www.j2mecertificate.com/scmad/control/examresources
Knudsen's book should be the best choice for you.

Cheers,

I will check those out. I am reading currently Sams Teach Yourself Wireless Java With J2ME in 21 Days.

It was published in 2001 one and I am wondering has then big changes since then? I noticed that all these j2me books are at least a couple years old. Has it pretty much stayed the same?
