I would like to get coding for it, as all nerds do.
However, I have no idea where to start. I guess I will need some form of mobile jdk on my pc (link to this please?)
A mobile phone simulator..? My phone is touchscreen, so that probably makes a difference.
If you would like to be especially nice, could you also post the code required for a "hello world!" application.
I hope this will give me some direction. I am aiming on creating some form of MP3 player, as the native one on my phone a bit like this: and I would like my own.
As Lester said, there's a master JME JDK available at java.sun.com (or wherever Oracle has moved everything to ). Most vendors (from my experience) wrap extra stuff around that kit and provide one on their own available through their developer program. Generally it only operates under MS Windows ( ). One thing to watch for is that there are 3 player here: "Oracle America" (f/k/a Sun), the phone manufacturer, and the phone carrier. Select your SDK based on the most specific one available for your target platform. An emulator comes with the original JME SDK, and most third-party providers will provide either it or some augmented version of it.
Oh. Almost forgot. The java.sun.com website does include JME tutorials. You can find your "Hello, World" code there. And welcome to the JavaRanch!
The secret of how to be miserable is to constantly expect things are going to happen the way that they are "supposed" to happen.
You can have faith, which carries the understanding that you may be disappointed. Then there's being a willfully-blind idiot, which virtually guarantees it.
