Book Overview

Learning Wireless Java is for Java developers who want to quickly come up to speed and create applications for the Micro Edition audience. This book covers the Connected, Limited Device Configuration and the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP), both currently available from Javasoft. The CLDC contains APIs for small devices that are constrained by both memory and processing power. MIDP builds on top of the CLDC and adds APIs specifically for...

An excellent book

This book is excellent. Great for a beginner. All the code makes sense. Easy to read. Very good appendix. Also, good for the experienced developer. Before buying this book, make sure you know JAVA 2 very well. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn wireless JAVA.

Excellent Focus on Distillation and Core Workflows

Mohmoud does an excellent job of distilling what is sine qua non to creating working midlets for various platforms. After explaining how to create J2ME programs using the command line he goes own to show how it can be done using contemporary graphical tools from Sun. You quickly reach the critical mass of being competent due to the author's good habit of presenting short lists of steps that lead toward program production.One could wish that he spent more time discussing development for the Palm OS, JMS, RMI and XML. However, if the book continues to mature the way Oreilly books due, we can expect to see this and more in the next edition.If you are looking to understand J2ME development and have on-hand quick-start help this book is for you. Chapters 3,7, and 8 quickly relate the important points and provide a helpful teaching context. It may not be enough for someone who has already begun the work of creating J2ME applications.

Easy to read and informative

I am new to Wireless Java, but I have some practical knowledge of Java itself. The book provided me with super information on Wirless Java and how to develop MIDlets. The book is super easy to read and the examples are informative. The introduction to J2ME (chapter 1) is excellent: everything is put in context. The examples on MIDP networking are _excellent_. The MIDP4PlamOS chapter is pretty good -- I was able to install JavaHQ on my Palm device in no time. I converted some applications for the Palm and they are working great. I am loving this stuff. Thank you for an informative book. If you need a book to get started with Wireless Java get this one!Regards,Jack

Pretty Good

I have read some of the author's articles online at Sun website. They were excellent and explain things very well. I decided to buy the book based on that. I was quite satisfied. The book starts by giving the big picture of the J2ME then it explains the CLDC and MIDP. I found it interesting for the book to provide practical info on how to download midlets in Motorola devices, but I do not have a device so I simply tested the examples using sun's emulator. I recommend this book for anyone interesting in learning MIDP programming. George.


I bought this book for two reasons: (1) compact in size and (2) it is from O'Reilly. The book is excellent; it is to the point and gets you up to speed in no time. There were a couple of typos in chapter 5 but overall the book is excellent and I have learned a great deal from it. I recommend it to everyone interested in Wireless Java.-Angie
