Overview

Although Java is incredibly popular, the standard edition of Java is way too big and way too bulky to build applications for wireless devices such as the PDAs and phones. Thus Sun has released "Java 2 Micro Edition" (J2ME). J2ME has the potential to be as revolutionary in the wireless space as Java has been in the server space.

"Wireless Java: Developing with Java 2, Micro Edition (J2ME), Second Edition" will be updated to include coverage of the next version of programs for mobile Java devices. The second edition will cover MIDP 2.0 and CLDC 1.1, and the new information will be distinguishable so readers can still reference the book for MIDP 1.0/CLDC 1.0.

Highlights of the new material: * New chapter on creating custom items for user interface. * New material on SSL and HTTPS. * New chapter on the game APIs. * New chapter on the media APIs. All of the existing chapters are being updated for MIDP 2.0/CLDC 1.1. The API reference appendix will also be updated.
