Is J2ME for programmer's only?
Will it be helpful for the students who are preparing for JAVA certification?

sandeep,
J2ME is a set of tools and APIs to develop applications for various devices (like cell phones, PDAs, pagers) other than PCs.
so, the APIs, and the implementations of the the JVM will be quite different from those you come across in JDK.
no, there won't be any questions whatsoever from J2ME in SCJP examination. cos for the simple reason that its not there in the syllabus. so, just relax and go ahead with your preparation.


all the best !!!
regards,
esh

I take it that J2ME adheres to the Java Language Specification though? So it's only restricted in terms of the APIs included in it's profile?

Depends what you mean by "J2ME". The Connected Device Configuration requires full support for the language and the VM bytecodes. The Connected Limited Device Configuration removes all floating point support, finalization, and a few other differences. In general, though, the use of the language is unchanged.
