Hi All, I am curious to write my first program with Java card technology, so need to get some doubts cleared. 1) I downloaded the Java Card Development Kit, Is is enough? anything else to be downloaded? 2) Once I write, how to check? 3) How to get a programmable java card (smart card) 4) How to transfer the program in to the smart card? 5) Where can I get the card readers?
Thanks alot in advance, and looking forward for answers. Thanks alot...

Dear Ransika, I am also curious to do experiments with smart card technology. Also, I am with a practical approach. I searched for technical information regarding smart media which comes with digital camera and SIM cards. I found that Java supports these.
I need to do something like SIM cloning (save two connections in one SIM). and retrieving photos saved in the camera.
But after finishing my SCJP I did not choose any advanced area to master. Is it very hard to do SCMAD ?
Anyway with Java smart media can I do something with SIM card as well as camera card.?

Dear Lanka, Well I am also very new to the Java card technology and I am not confident enough to answer all the technical questions that you have asked. As for the SCMAD, I think it is easier than SCJP provided that you have all the neccessary resources. Specially a good note set to study becuase of the fact that you have to read specifications where you get 100s of pages. IMO, it is not very easy to read and memorize the specifications. If I get to know any thing related with your questions, I will post them here. Sorry for the late reply.. Regards...
