A hands-on programming guide for the most active wireless application environment--cell phones and pagers
In his previous book, Java 2 Micro Edition (0-471-39065-8), Eric Giguere showed why Sun's J2ME is fast becoming the dominant language for all handheld devices. In this new book, the Ortiz-Giguere team explains how to use the J2ME Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) to write Java applications for wireless devices like cell phones and two-way pagers as well as more powerful devices like the Palm VII. The authors begin with a basic tutorial on J2ME, then quickly move on to explain how to use MIDP to write full-featured applications for cell phones and pagers. Using real case studies and code, they walk developers through all the necessary topics, including GUIs, client/server and peer-to-peer communications, HTTP, XML, databases, WAP, security issues, MIDP and J2EE in the Enterprise and much more.

Mobile Information Device Profile for Java(TM) 2 Micro Edition
Professional Developer's Guide
As the first Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) profile, the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) brings the power of Java to handheld devices like cell phones, interactive pagers, and personal digital assistants (PDAs). With this practical, hands-on reference, you'll learn how to create MIDP applications, with real development scenarios covering user interfaces, database networking, XML, security, and more. This timely book follows on the heels of Giguère's Java 2 Micro Edition to offer you the definitive guide to understanding and using the Mobile Information Device Profile.
This complete guide to MIDP programming covers such topics as:
* The basics of J2ME
* How to build and run MIDP applications
* MIDP programming examples
* The MIDP user interface model
* Persisting data with MIDP
* Using HTTP as a way to exchange data with servers on the Internet
* The importance of security for wireless devices
* Writing MIDP applications that use XML
* Future directions of MIDP
