J2ME in a Nutshell
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Released: March 2002
Pages: 482

To the experienced Java developer, J2ME (the Java 2 Micro Edition) looks just familiar enough to be tempting, but just different enough to warrant caution. J2ME in a Nutshellprovides the extra security you need when venturing into programming for cell phones, PDAs and other consumer electronic devices. It gives you the reference material you need for J2ME, together with a tutorial that leverages your existing knowledge and teaches you what is different about J2ME without boring you to tears with details you already know.

J2ME in a Nutshell provides a solid, no-nonsense reference to the "alphabet soup" of micro edition programming, covering the CLDC, CDC, KVM and MIDP APIs. The book also includes tutorials for the CLDC, KVM, MIDP and MIDlets, MIDlet user interfaces, networking and storage, and advice on programming small handhelds. Combined with O'Reilly's classic quick reference to all the core micro-edition APIs, this is the one book that will take you from curiosity to code with no frustrating frills in between

Comments about oreilly J2ME in a Nutshell:

This book was a good read, but don't buy this book now. Androi has killed J2ME and I don't think Oracle will update the development kit.

second edition, please!

Comments about oreilly J2ME in a Nutshell:

This book is a billion years old and still on the shelves. I bought it and then returned it the same afternoon. I read through a chapter or so and thought it was good, but why spend hours trying to work around deficiencies in the rev1 spec when I could start right up with rev2? Crazy. O'Reilly, please update this title!

Good but old

Comments about oreilly J2ME in a Nutshell:

Two major nits: the reference is available free from Sun and the book only covers CLDC 1.0 and MIDP 1.0 and, therefore, is way out of date. If this was up to date, it would be a great addition to the library - having the text and freebie data in one place would be convient.

Comprehensive book. It provides an interesting and useful reading. There is no section that points to URL's from where we can download the various tools though!
