From the Publisher
Learning Wireless Java is for Java developers who want to create applications for the Micro Edition audience using the Connected, Limited Device Configuration and the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP). These APIs specifically for devices such as mobile phones and pagers, allowing programmers to create MIDlet applications. This book offers a solid introduction to J2ME and MIDP, including the javax.microedition classes, as well as classes surrounding the features of the various platforms that the J2ME supports.

He has also presented tutorials on developing wireless applications at a number of international conferences worldwide.

Top Customer Reviews
The organization of the book follows standard conventions for Java books, starting with basic functionality, then GUI classes, then event handling. There is an API reference at the end of the book, which usually indicates the author is trying to pad the book, but I think it is appropriate here. It only adds 60 pages to the book, and it made it easier to read the material when I was away from a computer. Unfortunately, the book was only 169 pages without it, and I felt that it should have addressed some areas more in depth.
A good book for someone looking to learn J2ME and a handy quick reference, but as you advance, you'll outgrow this one.
One could wish that he spent more time discussing development for the Palm OS, JMS, RMI and XML. However, if the book continues to mature the way Oreilly books due, we can expect to see this and more in the next edition.
If you are looking to understand J2ME development and have on-hand quick-start help this book is for you. Chapters 3,7, and 8 quickly relate the important points and provide a helpful teaching context. It may not be enough for someone who has already begun the work of creating J2ME applications.

I bought this book for two reasons: (1) compact in size and (2) it is from O'Reilly. The book is excellent; it is to the point and gets you up to speed in no time. Read morePublished on Feb. 9 2002 by Angie Reed
