Hi!I want to build a cryptographic software for mobile phone that can send encrypted messages and can decode received messages.I want the software to implement most of the common ciphers RSA,Hill ,Vernam cipher etc.Later i want to develop algorithms for AES,Triple DES as well.I want to us e this as my final year project.Is it feasible?
Secondly is knowledge of JME a must to build this software ,or is there an alternative using core java & swing..please throw light...

Look at the the BouncyCastle library. Also look here: http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-12-2002/jw-1220-wireless.html

I think yes. I would use the mentioned BouncyCastle library for encryption or you can develop your own :-) You have to deal with some other APIs as well (for sending the SMS).

Yes, if you want the app for most of mobile phones, you HAVE to use JME. The other alternative is to develop an application for Symbian phones only (no java).
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
