I am trying to create one midlet; that will use Some Location Based Services. For that I am going to use J2ME Wireless Toolkit provided by Sun. But which how can we simulate the environment that some location based service is running on some server etc and we will get the latitude and longitude etc.

Can any body provide me some site where we can get some application and the details of how to set up the environment in one PC so that we can start on development environment.

I am not quite clear about the questions, but I guess what you can do is, just use a Connection (HttpConnection) and connect to the server which provides you the location based information. Hope this helps..

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
