I'll have to agree with the book recommendation. I had taken one class on Java and had no J2ME experience. After beginning to read Jonathan's book I was writing my first application within hours. It really is that good.
Its good to know that J2ME is relatively simple to pick up - though you may also need to learn parts of J2EE so you can create websites to provide data or services used by your Midlets. For me, the tough part is figuring out a compelling application. I believe that once that's done then the rest will kind of fall into place.

I'am relieved to know that programming in J2ME is relatively easy, if you have been programming in Java. I have been wanting to do some J2ME programming, but could not think of a suitable application.And as always , there are a lot more things to catch up in J2EE. Archana

archana, That's been my problem too. I think I'll write some simple "Hello World" type apps just for practice and see what develops from there... BTW, the bartender will probably tell you there's a name convention here and ask you to conform to it. Burk
