I found a tutorial website for Java and J2ME. Here is the site: http://forums.java.net/jive/index.jspa.
If you have any coding tips and tricks, please share them here.

Can anybody whose travelled down this under-development road before me kindly share whether or notone needs to target MID-spec Java apps at a Java ME CLDC/MIDP profile or simply import the Intel SDK classes like the SDK Samples do? Thank you for any advice.

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. The Intel Mobile SDK 1.3 supports Java ME, SE and EE runtime environments. I find a best practice is to target the JVM installed on the device(s) for which you are developing, i.e. most smart-phones implement Java ME, so you would target your application at an appropriate Java ME Profile and import the Intel Mobile SDK classes. A Mobile Internet Device, on the other hand, is typically going to have a full Java implementation via Java SE or possibly even Java EE, so one would not need to target the application at any Profile (Profiles are only available in Java ME, anyway). So, a developer need only import the required Intel Mobile SDK classes in the case of developing applications for devices with a Standard or Enterprise Java Virtual Machine installed. I hope others find this useful.

Hey

I'm a java developer for a large software outsourcing firm. We have been getting more and more requests for mobile apps using J2ME. I have played around a little before and it doesn't seem so different, just a smaller API.

Can anyone recommend some good books or courses to make the jump?

Cheers

Kris

i like "Core J2ME Technology", wishing it could help u 8 )

I think I read elsewhere that you could make a call to platformRequest in your MIDlet and pass the URI with the rtsp scheme.

Of course, the URI endpoint will probably need to end in rm...

Something like: platformRequest("rtsp://someserverfile.rm")

hyperlink to the following URL.it ll be very helpfull

Good luck

Although not recommended to use repeatedly, sometimes it is quite useful to force a garbage collection in situations such as your game is going to the next level where you use all new graphics and old objects are deleted.

Use

System.gc();

Anyone who is a bit interested in electronics and hobby circuit assembling would have came across the readily available Bluetooth miniature modules which could be interfaced to a PIC microcontroller circuit and create devices that could communicate with any other Bluetooth enabled devices. This could be interfaced to our Mobile Phone applications in any platform that supports Bluetooth interfacing and create a wide variety of applications like Bluetooth controlled toy car (this project details are already available freely). You can find a lot more of applications for this mobile circuit combination, both useful and amazing.

In general, producing a vibration in J2ME requires the usage of

Display.Vibrate(duration);

But for Nokia phones you can use the package
com.nokia.mid.ui.DeviceControl

and use the function DeviceControl.startVibra(freq, duration);

Note that the duration is specified in milliseconds and frequency in hertz.

To reduce the amount of data, it could be compressed on the server and uncompressed using gZip library at the mobile device.

hi,
Is it possible to filter the incoming messages coming from a particular number and save it into a different folder other than inbox through J2ME?

and also is it possible to filter the incoming calls too in J2ME?

Hi,
I recently downloaded the Intel Mobile Platform SDK for Linux.
I'm trying to access an RFID reader from a java application.
The reader is a skyetek M9 (Development Kit).
My problem is that I cannot find the class RfidReaderClass from the library.
I'm using Netbeans and I configured the project to access all the libraries available through the Intel Mobile Platform SDK.
If I want to access the BatteryClass, for example, the IDE suggests the import of the com.intel.mobile.battery.BatteryClass, but for the RfidReaderClass I cannot find any library.
Am I missing somethiing?
It's like the class for Rfid readers is missing...
Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks,

Davide

Davide:

Try importing the package and creating a class, like below.

import com.intel.mobile.rfid.*;

public class RfidReaderClass extends ClassObject
{}

Hope this helps.

Hi kremsoft,

If i can advise i will strongly advise you to also branch into other programming languages. I don't know how vast you are in Java, but i know that maybe another prog lang ( like C/C++) might solve the problem.

Thanks.

Why not try www.sun.comi have some JME downloads there.

I agree...Garbage Collection can be quite useful. It's a great way to reduce your apps memory footprint and use less power (using less memory uses less power) - an awesome dirty trick for power optimization. Timing is critical because you use that energy running the Garbage Collection cycle. Tools and testing are an absolute MUST for this method! But, it DOES work.

Even though J2ME development is still Java, there are a number of differences between doing mobile development and doing J2SE or J2EE development..
