Hello Experts!

I Hope you can help me with something. I want to develop an app that:

1. runs on a cell phone with J2ME
2. reads an image from phones memory/memory stick
3. sends it to a printer for printing.

Some phones do provide this feature inbuilt on them , However I would like to implement the same onto my application..

Please help me where to start ..

It depends on how you want the phone to talk to the printer. If you search this forum about a year back there was a lot of discussion on that topic.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
