Sorry if what I'm about to ask you is a silly question, but since I'm taking my first steps into j2me I have to do it. I know that you can have multiple screens in a single MIDlet, but that doesn't seem to be a good idea when you're going to have a considerable number of screens(more than 10) as it would end up in a complete mess. So here's the question(not sure if possible), how do you usually organize your code in a j2me project? Or do you put everything inside a single MIDlet or do you separate your code into different MIDlets, one per screen, as we usually do in web or desktop applications??

I also noticed that when a project have multiple MIDlets and you launch the emulator, you have the possibility to start each of them. If you can have different functionality in different MIDlets, being able to run any MIDlet without following a specific order,doesn't seem very convenient since a MIDlet might depend on the data that is read in a previous MIDlet.

Please if it is possible to separate different functionality into different MIDlets , do you think you could give a general idea of how to do it?? Which steps to take in general.

Thanks in advance.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
