I would like to check out J2ME by writing some small applications. There are quite a few packages available at Sun under J2ME. Can somebody suggest what I need to download from Sun and/or elsewhere to write for PDA's, java enabled phone etc.?

The advantage of Toolkit is that, you make the Application Descriptor, manifest, package your application with more easy.

thank you all for the input, there seems to be a bit more diversity to J2ME than learning some of the other API ... I guess I have a bit more research to do
