Would a Nokia 6820 be sufficient ? What do I need to look for in the mobile device .

I need a user to collect data on the field and be able to upload it via a browser in a secure session. I imagine the onus is on the http to maintain
the session details.

Also, a book reference that would help with this would be useful.

Is there a development IDE like Eclipse for Mobile devices.

Are you trying to develop a browser app for mobile phones? Managing sessions is not a problem since most mobile browsers (WAP or XHTML-MP) support cookies. The rest of the session management work is done on the server side.

It could be one of the following assuming they'd run on the Nokia 6820.

Swing GUI client

Browser Application

Web Services Application

I guess it would be easier to start with Swing since that's what most Java games are made up of and then move up the chain.

The application (many suppliers ) would just collect information like stock taking (hopefully seamlessly) and feed that into a browser application on the server side.

An Office PDA of sorts.

Swing is not supported on Java phones. J2ME has its own API for user interface.

Thanks Michael.
Forgot Swing was heavyweight. Browser app it be then.
Personal Shopper applications also. Imagine an employee in a small company wearing different hats and using a single mobile device for several tasks.

Web Service applications would be out of the question then ? It sounds as though the subject needs an entire site devoted to it , not just a forum.
Nice that it's here also.

Enterprise J2ME looks like the book for what I am after.

This book also looks promising.
Is there likely to be lots of overlap - commonalities between a Bluetooth Java application and a Java browser app for mobile devices.
