This book describes how to program mobile telephones, pagers, PDAs, and other small devices using Java technology. It is about the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP), which is part of the Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME). It is concise and complete, describing all of MIDP as well as moving into several exciting advanced concepts such as 3D graphics and cryptography.
This third edition covers MIDP 2.0, and has been updated to track the Java Technology for the Wireless Industry (JTWI 1.0) de facto standard. Every chapter has been revised and meticulously updated, and four completely new chapters have been added.
Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) is the second revolution in Java’s short history. When Java was introduced in 1995, it looked like the future of computing was in applets, small programs that could be downloaded and run on demand. A slow Internet and a restrictive all-or-nothing sandbox security model accounted for the initially slow adoption of applets. Java, as a platform, really took off with the advent of servlets, Java programs that run on a server (offering a modular and efficient replacement for the vulnerable CGI). Java further expanded into the server side of things, eventually picking up the moniker of Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE). This was the first revolution, the blitz of server-side Java.
The second revolution is the explosion of small-device Java, and it’s happening now. The market for small devices is expanding rapidly, and Java is important for two reasons. First, developers can write code and have it run on dozens of small devices, without change. Second, Java has important safety features for downloadable code.
