I have written several articles about J2ME and MIDP and maintain a list of developer links and software:

Hi all,
I myself am very new to the J2ME and have a question. I was asked to research a new project for myself at work and am wondering if the j2me is the way to go. All I have to do is develop a quote engine application that a sales person will use on there PDA to a consumer to give them a quote. It does not need to use the web or anything, just a couple of screens and rules and spit out a quote. Is the j2me the way for me to go??? I think it is but if anyone would care to elaborate on it please do so.
Thank you and have a great day!

J2ME would be an excellent choice. Given the application does not need any connection with a remote server you could have something up and running in a very short amount of time.
Remote connection is not difficult, it just tends to be a little more time consuming given you need to establish how you will retrieve data and what to do with it once you have it available.
