Written to address the technical concerns faced by mobile developers, this book explores the differences between mobile and stationary applications and the architectural and software development concepts needed to build mobile applications. Reza B'Far guides the developer through the development process, using UML from design to implementation. He focuses on general concepts, while using platforms as examples or as possible tools. After introducing UML, XML, and the derivative tools necessary for developing mobile software applications, B'Far demonstrates how to build user interfaces for mobile applications.

I was looking for information on developing J2ME applications so I got this book along with a few others... I was pleasantly surprised when I started reading it and saw that there was a lot more in there than just Mobile development! There are several design pattern discussions, good UI development discussions, and a lot of very good information on VXML and other Voice related topics. There is a lot more in there than the back of the book says... so, even though it's a little expensive, it's well-worth it...
