I have downloaded EclipseME plugin for Eclipse to develop JME application, but I have issues with the configuration.

On following the configuration instructions as mention on the following URL:
http://eclipseme.org/docs/configuring.html,

I do not get any devices, when I select "import" and type in the root directory of my WTK.

The WTK is correctly installed on my system. I can use textpad to create the required code, and compile and execute it using the WTK installed on my stsem.

Can anyone help me with this.

Thanks.

You have to link the Eclipse stuff to a WTK (which I think you have, but it bears repeating).

The Sun basic wireless kit came with a set of emulated devices, but for real-world development, you should get the WTK from the carrier/manufacturer(s) that you intend to target, as they have the stuff you need to actually develop for said devices. Commonly, they provide a complete customized development environment, not just a device definition. Which is good (you pretty much have everything you need) and bad (if you're targeting multiple devices from multiple carriers, this can get messy).

I am a Java developer, ready to start with the JME applications. I wanted to practice writing code for the Mobile devices and hence this configuration issue with Eclipse. Which development environment is good to start practicing some code with mobile applications.

Thanks.

cheers
