ME Apps gives you, the developer, the know-how required for writing sophisticated Java
ME applications and for taking advantage of this huge potential market. Java
ME is the largest mobile software
platform in the world, supported by over 80% of all phones. You'll cover what Java
ME is and how it compares to other mobile software
platforms, how to properly design and structure Java
ME applications, how to think like an experienced Java
ME developer, what common problems and pitfalls you may run into, how to optimize your code, and many other key topics.
Unlike other Java
ME books out there, which only teach the reader the basics of Java
ME by way of a few simple examples, this book presents a broader, eagle-eye picture of a complete Java
ME application and what writing one involves. From there, the book presents, explains, and helps you to implement all the essential aspects of Java
ME development, from the user interface to client-server communication. As this unfolds, the decisions and reasoning behind the code are also presented.
