Overview

An in-depth tutorial on how to use Java 2 Micro Edition to program handheld devices

Although Java is one of the most popular programming languages, it is too powerful to be used on wireless, handheld devices like the Palm Connected Organizer. A miniature version of Java, called Java 2 Micro Edition, has now been created by Sun Microsystems to run specifically on these devices. Written by software developer Eric Giguere, this book provides an authoritative treatment of this new language. Readers will learn what has to be done to make Java workable on these devices and what strategies are required to write programs that don't take up too much memory or run down the device's batteries. The book also provides complete coverage of Java Micro Edition, including the profiles that define the capabilities available to various devices.

CD-ROM includes licensed versions of the Java 2 Micro Edition SDK, Waba, and Kaffe. Examples are provided that run on multiple wireless platforms.
