Article I wrote for last year's JavaOne (2003):

An even earlier version on JavaWorld is this:

Most of the points are still valid. The significant update is that Nokia SDKs now integrates with Eclipse as well. But all in all, I still prefer to write code in IDEA and build it with ANT or Antenna.

I just stumbled across a Java Pro article from October, 2002 on the subject.

http://www.ftponline.com/wireless/rgrehan/

It covers Metrowerks' CodeWarrior Wireless Studio, Sun ONE Studio 4 Mobile Edition (formerly Forte for Java Mobile Edition), Data Representations' Simplicity, Zucotto's Whiteboard, Borland's JBuilder MobileSet, and IBM's WebSphere Studio Device Developer.

If you want a free solution then check www.eclipse.org download eclipse
and then check http://eclipse-plugins.2y.net/eclipse/index.jsp there are 2 / 3 eclipse plugins for developing j2me application by eclipse.

I recommend using your favourite IDE for the coding and Ant for the building of the applications.

My favourite IDEs are Eclipse and NetBeans, my favourite Ant-tool is J2ME Polish (which is written by me, incidently ;-)

Best regards,

Here is a tutorial on how to use NetBeans for J2ME projects. That should give a clue as to whether NetBeans meets your needs: http://www.netbeans.org/kb/articles/j2me_tutorial.html


We learn by doing, there is no other way.

That depends on what you would like the IDE to do for you. I used JBuilder to write my code and Sun's Wireless Toolkit to package and run the apps.
