Eric's J2ME Pages
As the author of the
about Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME), published in late 1999, I've collected
a lot of information about the technology. These pages
present some of that information, mostly material written
by myself. I hope you find them useful!
Getting Started With J2ME
Newcomers to J2ME should start with the
Overviews of J2ME
page to gain a firm understanding
of what Java 2 Micro Edition is and what it isn't. The reality is
that J2ME is an umbrella term for a number of closely-related
Java technologies for constrained devices like cellphones, PDAs,
embedded systems, and similar systems. Saying that software
"works with J2ME" is almost meaningless if you don't specify
what configuration, profiles, and/or optional packages it
Once you understand what J2ME is, your next step will be
to acquire some kind of development tool with built-in
J2ME support. The J2ME
development tools page is a good place to start. If you're unsure
of which tool to use, try Sun's
Don't forget to join one of the

What Do All The Acronyms Mean?
For conciseness, I've chosen to use TLAs (recursive
definition: TLA is a TLA for three-letter acronym)
in the navigation menu for Eric's J2ME Pages. J2ME, as you will
soon discover, is full of acronyms. Consult my
acronym list for acronym definitions and explanations.
