I am trying to get into the wireless technology, specially regarding JAVA 2 ME. Is there any place I can find information about Windows CE, Palm OS and Java Development over these platforms.
How do I deploy an application in any of this OS? Is there any special considerations? Any particular methodology?

Deployment of the application is very device/OS specific. MIDP uses a JAM (see the MIDP spec). PersonalJava on WinCE is more traditional, and some commercial installers even support installation to this OS.
I agree. Here's the link:
