I am looking for a j2me emulatore for developing j2me application using MIDP2.0, I am particularly interested in emulators that dont look like a huge moblie phone rit in fornt of me, I would prefer something that doesnt look like a mobile phone.
My current project in office has nothing to do with j2me but I am interested in it and work on it when I have some free time in office, and then I have people staring at my screen asking me 'oooo that is a nice phone! do plan to buy that phone', 'Which site are you browsing' etc, so you see I need an emulator that doesnt look like a phone and preferably just like a normal windows application, so that I cant do some development and not be bothered.

The WTK from sun supports MIDP2...
I believe you could change the skin of the emulator by modifying the image it looks for in the devices directory. All the different emulators are in a directory named devices under the WTK root directory. I don't have it installed right now or I'd check, but there should be a set of png or bmp files there, which you can edit to be all black (or whatever).
