Hi, As part of my learning process, I've been trying to find useful applications to write using the MIDP.( Other than stock qoutes & ticket applications, of course ;-)
Scary , but I can't think of anything I'd want on my phone ..
Comments anyone ?

Just about any application you would do on a PDA:
Expense tracker
Calories tracker
Fuel log
game (chess or online)
Read news
I like to write when I go out traveling (camping without laptop hookup). I can use a wireless device to record my thoughts and even lookup dictionaries.
Of course I have not listed "enterprise" applications a company might provide for its field agents.

Here we are developing an application which will store all the database connection values in RMS and saving it with a particular name.When i want to retrieve values for a particular query simply clicking on the name will give me the values ...
The scenarios where it will be useful are to find the details of inventory in the organization.

While those are all good ideas, they are very much B2C in focus. I have always believed, and my experience at a J2ME company only furthered my belief, that B2B will be ythe first major marketspace for wireless applications.
Think about ERP and CRM type apps, or your general business system used by your company? Could that be made wireless? Who would use it, how and why? Imagine a company with field workers, or traeling salesmen, what would their needs be.
I suspect in the next few years if your do J2ME work, it would be at a B2B company, and so any apps you create in this space to demo during an interview may be closer to what the potential employer does.

our book contains an example application showing how to manage blood sugar values. Values are stored in RMS, visualized using the low-level Canvas class. Furthermore applications for Telegraphic transfer is included in the book as well.
