Well I personally feel that you need to be very thorough in the core concepts if you really want to do proper J2ME coding. But this doesn't necessarily mean that you can't try out J2ME with out it. The point here is that, you need to know how to program correctly, meaning you need to know the very basics to do proper coding for a resource constrained environment. I hope this helps.

Regards and happy coding...

I would recommend the following:
Good knowledge of Data types and streams. More than basic knowledge of AWT(it will help you understand the ways that things are drawn in J2ME like Forms or Canvas) and good knowlegde of threads.

The rest you will find out along the way!
Good luck!!

Ransika makes a good poinnt...

In J2ME it is about being an efficient programmer rather than being a mere Java Guru..

Other than that MIDP high level UI development seems easy and interesting...
But in reality it is a good thing to start learning the low level Canvas stuff if you wanna be a star in the industry front...

Good luck with J2ME
