i am looking forward for a career in j2me. while reading topics on GCF , i came across a project called mobile news. my curiosity to know better about it made me to post a topic here.
my ques:

am using services of a network operator which not only gives me call and mesage handling services, but also other services like news and train reservations, astrology. etc..

when i press news, how exactly my network operator gives me headlines of todays breaking news..i know we use NNTP protocol for communication
with news servers. so is it the same way or is there any other way to do it..

so when i start a project on this how should i proceed step by step.?
like first know NNTP and move further with GCF and other concepts..

please help me for a way to just retieve a small headline from a news channel and get it on my mobile..

thanks in advance

I think you probably need to start off (in this case) finding out what they're using for their technologies in the background - I don't know that it's safe to assume that it's using NNTP, as they could be using something proprietary to send that data.

I'd say start by learning Java ME and going from there. There's plenty of information out there on it, and you can teach yourself and gain some experience working with the technologies.
