It covers advanced issues such as how to maintain HTTP sessions, object-to-record-store mapping, and multiple alerts. The authors discuss several techniques and patterns designed to produce better mobile code.
For example, you should probably put a network-download process in a separate thread to avoid blocking the user interface when the wireless connection is slow or lost. On the server-side integration front, this book contains simple examples to illustrate how to access backend data through a servlet gateway. The authors demonstrate those techniques in real-world sample applications.
The book's email application has both educational and practical values. The security section, however, is disappointing. Generally, the source code listings have too few comments. However, novice readers who have little security knowledge might find this book quite useful. The API documentation at the end of the book eats up more than 60 pages and basically copies the Javadocs available on the Internet.
The authors could have better used this space by presenting some big-picture and general J2ME issues. For beginner-level developers, this book offers an excellent introduction to basic MIDP concepts and techniques. The last three chapters of the book are excellent. In Chapter 9, the author gives a comprehensive discussion on wireless internationalization issues and offers a solution, with sample code, for simulating J2SE ResourceBundle on the MIDP platform.
Chapter 10 details over-the-air mobile application provision issues. Since the formal OTA spec and network carrier support are still in their infancies, discussing OTA in accurate terms that prove useful to developers is impossible. But this book's OTA discussion proves valuable to business managers and strategic developers who want to know how Java-based digital wireless networks work.
Chapter 11 discusses the general structure of wireless data networks and some architectural issues. However, Piroumian could have improved a number of discussions. From the viewpoint of MIDP programming, this book lacks small device application design topics. I was disappointed that the book covers only MIDP programming.
To see how the books compare to each other, check out the table below. However, remember that a 1-to-5 numerical scale is often too coarse to judge a book. Different books target varying audiences, emphasize different materials, and present ideas differently.
I recommend reading the individual reviews carefully before purchasing any books. All six books reviewed in this article are satisfactory. But none stands out as the best for all occasions. If you are a wireless enterprise system architect, a business manager, or an advanced strategic developer, you must read Manning's Java 2 Micro Edition.

Sun Microsystems Press Java Ser.: Core J2ME Technology and MIDP by John W. Muchow (Trade Paper)
I found a tutorial website for Java and J2ME. If you have any coding tips and tricks, please share them here. CCK I am going to answer my own question; in the event it is asked again by another individual searching for knowledge, the knowledge will be there. I find a best practice is to target the JVM installed on the device s for which you are developing, i.

Since its launch in , the landscape has changed significantly. Java has extended its reach far beyond desktop machines. Two years after the introduction of Java, a new edition was released, Java 2 Enterprise Edition, providing support for large-scale, enterprise-wide applications. The most recent addition to the family is the Micro Edition, targeting "information appliances," ranging from Internet-enabled TV set-top boxes to cellular phones. J2ME is aimed squarely at consumer devices with limited horsepower. Many such devices e.
